"What's the formula for determining my financial aid?"

We use the formula:

Cost of Attendance - Expected Family Contribution = Need

"Need" is a number that identifies the maximum amount of financial aid you're eligible for. Duke meets demonstrated need 100%, which means Duke will offer you the maximum amount of financial aid you're eligible for. Your "need" = your aid offered.

"What will my financial aid offer look like?"

We'll subtract your family contribution from your cost of attendance to learn how much aid you'll receive. That aid will most likely include a loan, work-study, and grant aid. You can learn more about the parts of the offer and see sample aid offers below.
