We have further segregated the amount of financial aid received by each family income bracket to facilitate your decision making wisely. If you fall under a family income category under $30,000 then you may receive a basic amount of $60,741 as financial aid. A family income category ranging from $30,001 - $48,000 can expect the same amount to go down to $55,253.

For an income range between $48,001 to $75,000 the expected financial aid that you might expect to receive can be close to a figure of $49,440. This pattern is followed when we see family incomes falling under the range of $75,001 - $110,000 receiving financial aid of up to $44,103. For any family with an income range falling over and above $110,000, they may get an amount of $21,156. In essence, the lower the family income bracket you fall under, the higher the scope of the payout that you will receive.
