Is idly possible to attend a Private University for free if his FAFSA EFC is 0 ?
EGC 0 means he is 100% covered for his UC Universities and Cal State Universities expenses.
My son wants to go to Pepperdine University or USC Private University. His FAFSA EFC is 0 which means his college expenses are 100% covered for public universities in California. But what about Private Universities in California?

FALSE. It DOES NOT mean ANY of his college expenses are covered at public universities. If means he is allowed to receive 'need based' aid up to 100% of tuition, books, and room and board. MOST of that would be in the form of student loans.
Also note: The calculation NEVER shows the family contribution at $0.00.
It is theoretically possible to receive a full scholarship ANYWHERE, regardless of FAFSA numbers.
