Parental Contribution (PC)

The Parental Contribution, or PC, is the portion of the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) that is estimated to come from the income and assets of the parents of a dependent student. The PC is used by Purdue University Calumet and the State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana to calculate eligibility for some types of institutional and state aid eligibility. The College Board EFC Calculator result will display the Parental Contribution (along with the Student Contribution) as part of the total Expected Family Contribution. Record these numbers before returning to the Purdue Calumet Financial Aid Estimator for entry.
