Most financial aid at the University of Rhode Island is awarded to students on the basis of demonstrated financial need. To determine financial need, the University employs the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which calculates the expected family contribution FAFSA. Note that we expect your family, insofar as it is able, to bear primary responsibility for financing your college education, and that you, the student, are expected to earn a portion of your resources for college expenses.
Total Expense Budget - Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = Your Financial Need
For need-based aid, no student is allowed to receive financial assistance in excess of financial need.
