Frequently Asked Questions

If one child in school has a scholarship, does that negate the benefit of having two children in college when calculating my EFC?

Ithaca College is sensitive to expenses of one sibling to the other. If it is determined that you should pay $20,000 in total EFC and you aren't paying anything for the first child, we will expect you to pay more than the half for the second child. We believe that if you're able to pay, you should not get the aid over someone else who is not.
