2.- Financial Aid Policy
The amount and type of financial assistance will be provided through educational loans, grants, and college work-study in keeping with existing laws and regulations governing financial aid programs. Priority is given to undergraduate students with documented need, who meet academic eligibility criteria, who are enrolled on a full-time basis (12 hours or more), and whose applications are received by the priority date of March 15.
Financial aid awards are based on financial need and academic merit and are operated within existing federal, state and local regulations and policies. The difference between the cost of attending the university (student budget), the student's/family resources (family and/or student contribution), and estimated financial assistance (includes all non-Title IV Scholarships, grants, loans or other assistance not received under Title IV, including Veterans Educational Benefits) determines financial need. For a detailed breakdown of direct and indirect educational costs, contact the above office for written material.
All financial aid applicants are required to submit a free Application for Federal Student Aid to determine their financial need for the aid period.
Effective January 1, 1998, a student subject to selective service registration will be required to file a statement that the student has registered or is exempt from selective service registration in order to be eligible to receive financial assistance funded by State revenue – H.B. 2061.
