Simply put, the purpose of need-based financial aid is to help bridge the gap between your Expected Family Contribution (as determined by the results of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the cost of attending Goshen College. Many families and students mistakenly assume they are not eligible to receive financial aid – but we encourage everyone to apply so that you can understand a broader range of options.
