Traditional Undergraduates: Student Financial Aid


FINANCIAL AID

Click on any of the following links for information:

We believe a student should consider the advantage of a private college when choosing an institution of higher education. Realizing the cost of higher education today, Friends University makes every effort to enable all students to attend regardless of financial resources, age, sex, marital status, physical handicap, race, religion and/or national origin. Financial need may be met through a combination of federal, state and institutional financial aid programs. Friends University provides financial counseling and encourages campus visits by students and parents to discuss financial planning. If additional information is desired, students should direct their questions to the Financial Aid Office.


The following general rules apply to financial aid awards:

  1. To be eligible for financial aid, students are required to be fully admitted to the University and enrolled in a program leading to a degree.
  2. Financial need and availability of funds are primary factors in determining awards. Most awards are for one year and are always made on a full-time basis.
  3. Federal aid is prorated when enrollment is less than full time.
  4. State aid requires enrollment in a minimum of 12 credit hours a semester in a standard term program.
  5. Institutional aid requires enrollment in a minimum of 12 credit hours a semester in the traditional undergraduate program. Institutional aid is designated for tuition.
  6. All awards are to be used for educational related expenses.
  7. Financial aid will be forfeited by a student who has been dismissed for academic reasons or failed to comply with the satisfactory academic progress policy.
  8. Discrimination is prohibited – refer to the Non-discriminatory Policy.

Application Procedures for Financial Aid:

  1. A need analysis is required for aid from federal, state and some institutional programs. To determine need, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  2. Complete/Provide any additional documents requested by the Financial Aid Office.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy - SAP

A student must make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree to be eligible for financial aid. Friends University’s policy for satisfactory academic progress is in accordance with Federal guidelines.

Satisfactory academic progress is checked after every semester at Friends University.

Full-time students must earn a minimum number of credit hours in conjunction with number of years of enrollment as defined as follows. Part-time students will be expected to make the same proportional progress as full-time students. Students must earn a cumulative grade point average in accordance with academic classification.

Year of Full-Time Enrollment   Credit Hours Earned
1   28
2   58
3   88
4   118
5   148+

Freshman

 

1.6 CGPA

Sophomore

 

1.8 CGPA

Junior

 

2.0 CGPA

Senior

 

2.0 CGPA

Eligible students may receive aid up to a maximum of 1.5 times the regular length of time required to complete a degree as defined by the academic program. Students are required to complete 67 percent of all attempted hours to maintain eligibility to receive federal financial assistance.

Incompletes: will not be counted as credit earned. One semester is allowed to finish incomplete work.

Retakes: A student may receive federal financial aid for retakes of any previously failed courses and financial aid will pay for one retake of any previously passed course.

Financial Aid Warning Status: A student is placed on this status if they fail to make satisfactory academic progress as defined by the quantitative and qualitative standards listed above. A student can receive federal financial aid for one payment period (semester) while on this status. If a student fails to make academic progress after they have been on Financial Aid Warning status, they will not be eligible for federal financial aid at this institution.

Financial Aid Appeal Procedure: If a student fails to meet satisfactory academic progress standards and is no longer eligible for federal financial aid, there is an appeal process. A student can appeal for undue hardship based on the death of a relative, personal injury or illness of the student or other special circumstances.

1. Write a letter of appeal to the Assistant Director of Financial Aid explaining why the student failed to make progress, and what has changed in the student’s situation that would demonstrate the ability to make satisfactory academic progress. Please include any supporting documentation.
2. Appeal must be made before the enrollment period or make arrangements if more time is needed.
3. Written notification will be made to the student.

Financial Aid Probation Status: If an appeal for federal financial aid is granted, the student will be placed on probation status and may receive federal financial aid. There may be specific terms or conditions required such as taking a reduced course load, enrolling in specific courses or reduced loan eligibility.

Refunds: If a refund is due to a student for tuition, room and board, or other institutional charges, and the student received financial aid, a portion of the refund will be returned to the student aid programs in accordance with federal guidelines. Refer to Refund Policy and Repayment of Title IV Funds.

Student Account Services calculates the initial refund based on the refundable charges and the date of withdrawal. Refer to the refund schedule.

REFUND POLICY (Effective Spring 2018)

The percent and procedure for a refund is dependent on the date of official withdrawal and Federal regulations. Withdrawal is not official until it is received by the Office of the University Registrar. All refunds will be granted in full accordance with current Federal regulatory guidelines and University Policy.  Failure to attend classes does NOT constitute official withdrawal.

Friends University will refund institutional charges including tuition and fees based on the following:

16 Week Classes

Course dropped prior to the start of the course (term): 100%

Course dropped during the first 10 calendar days of the course (term): 100% Course dropped during the calendar days 11 -20 of the course (term): 50% Course dropped after 20th  calendar day of the course (term): 0%

8 Week Classes

Course dropped prior to the start of the term: 100%

Course dropped during the first 5 calendar days of the course (term): 100% Course dropped during the calendar days 6-10 of the course (term): 50% Course dropped after the 10th  day of the course (term): 0%

Classes Less than 4 Weeks in Duration

Course dropped prior to the start of the course (term): 100% Course dropped after the course (term) begins: 0%

Course fees will be refunded only if the student qualifies for a 100% refund. All refunds and deposits that may be due a student will first be applied to any debts owed to the college. Refunds for students receiving federal financial assistance are subject to federal guidelines.

Disbursement: Scholarships, grants and loans will be disbursed as a credit to the student’s account either by direct deposit or by endorsement of check(s). Direct deposit transactions will be made when the 100 percent (100%) refund period has expired for the enrollment period.
