Financial need is determined taking into consideration many factors including income, certain expenses, assets, allowable debts, family size, age of the parents, and the number of children attending tuition-charging schools and college.

Because the figures in the chart above show income as the only factor, they may be used only as a general guide. Other family financial circumstances will result in higher or lower family contributions.
