9.2 Creating a Prorated EFC

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for how to create a prorated EFC in ctcLink.

Audience: FA Counselor/Technician.

Creating a Prorated EFC

Note: 6/18/21 -- Prorations must be made from the EFC\DB Matches\Corr tab.  In Image 21, a bug has been identified that prevents updates from being made from to the FM pagelet on the first three tabs on the page.  You must start the pro-ration of the EFC at the FM pagelet from the EFC\DB Matches\Corr tab.  This workaround is effective for the 21/22 AY only.  Image 23 will deliver a fix to this bug.  This QRG will be updated at that time.
