Professional Judgment Information

At Eastern Illinois University, we understand how COVID-19 has impacted wages, savings, financial security, and the ability to pay for life’s extras. Because of this, the two-year-old financial information you provided on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, may not accurately reflect yours or your parent’s financial situation this current year.

WE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP WITH A PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT.

If you are:

We may be able to REDUCE your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) which could INCREASE YOUR ELIGIBILITY for MORE GIFT AID. (That is FREE MONEY!)

Please note: If your FAFSA information has already resulted in a ZERO EFC, a Professional Judgment cannot be processed. You may find your EFC on your Student Aid Report, on your award letter, or by contacting our office.
