New FAFSA form changes the calculations for expected family college costs.

Some families may end up having to pay more, while others will pay less.

The Expected Family Contribution is being replaced with the Student Aid Index, or SAI. It estimates how much families can pay for a student's education. The break on the SAI that families received for having multiple students in college is gone, which some analysts say may leave families paying as much as twice as much."Before that would be evenly divided among all your children. So if you had three children you would divide $20,000 by three. And that’s what your number is.
