How Does It Work?
The financial support process at Duke begins by determining how much a family can contribute toward the cost of education. Duke reviews each student’s aid application and ultimately determines the amount the student and family would be expected to pay—an amount we call the Expected Family Contribution, or EFC. Any remaining costs are covered by our office in the form of grants, work study, and limited student loans.
