Financial Aid Information
To apply for financial assistance, students should complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.FAFSA.ED.GOV. A printed FAFSA may be obtained at www.EDPUBBS.ORG or at 1-800-433-3243. Award instructions will be sent with the award notification.
Accepted awarded funds are automatically deposited into the tuition account based upon actual enrollment status at time of payment. Residual funds are paid to the student via the refund procedures of the college. Students adding courses after all funds are dispersed are required to pay any additional charges. Students are in jeopardy of being dropped from ALL their courses should an unpaid balance remain at the close of business on the payment deadline.
All or some of the financial aid paid may be “owed back” should a student withdraw from a course or courses on or before the census day. Students are responsible for knowing the census day that pertains to their enrollments. The college policies for paying outstanding balances apply should an outstanding balance exist after a reduction of aid due to course withdrawal.
A student withdrawing from all courses before sixty percent (60%) of the semester elapses may cause an “owe back” situation for the student. Students have forty-five (45) days to repay the funds owed or the matter is referred to the Department of Education as a defaulted student grant or loan.
NOTE: Students who owe any financial aid funds are not eligible for additional aid until the default is cleared and/or the debt is paid in full.
