*All residents, except apartments, must take a Board Plan. Please refer to the Chartwells’ website for specific meal plan information. www.dineoncampus.com/naz/

**Advance deposits are non-refundable, but are credited to the first-semester bill.

***Payable by those students who register after classes begin, or whose study program is not filed with the Registrar by August 25, 2014 or by January 12, 2015.

The expenses shown are for the 2014-2015 academic year. In addition to the expenses listed, we estimate that full time Nazareth College students will need $1,100 per academic year for books and supplies and discretionary personal expenses will cost them at least $1,400.

In anticipation of the continuing need for acceleration of the academic development of the college, it is expected that tuition, room, board and fee increases will be required in each succeeding academic year. Nazareth College will continue its endeavor to limit such increases to reasonable levels.

Payment

The final balance on your bill (after Financial Aid has been subtracted) is payable by cash or check. Make checks payable to Nazareth College.

Students who have not satisfied their financial obligations by the due date are subject to a late payment fee of $250.

The TuitionPay monthly payment plan offered through Higher One is one option. A second option is with Tuition Management Systems. Information is available on the Student Accounts’ website.

Please refer to the Student Accounts’ website for additional billing procedures and policies. (www.naz.edu/dept/studentaccounts/)

Financial Responsibility

All students are responsible for any college debts they have incurred, including but not limited to library fees, parking fines, tuition charges and related fees. If a college debt must be referred to outside sources for collection, the student will be responsible for paying additional collection costs including, but not limited to, attorney fees and disbursements. Note: Nazareth College reserves the right to withhold grades, transcripts, diplomas, or registration in those instances where financial obligations are not fulfilled.

Student Accounts’ Policy on the Reduction of Charges

(Fall and Spring Semesters Only)
Students who withdraw completely from the college are granted reductions of tuition and room and board as follows (the amount of any reduction will be calculated from the day on which the notice of withdrawal is submitted in writing to the Center for Student Success or to the Registrar’s Office):

Tuition: Withdrawal within the first week of classes, 100% reduction; within the second week, 90% reduction; within the third week, 80%; within the fourth week, 50%; within the fifth and sixth weeks, 25%; after the sixth week of the term, no reduction.
Room: Reduction of room charged is based on a prorata basis during the first week. Room charge reduction is calculated the same as tuition reduction after the first week.
Board: All Meal plans except BYOP will be adjusted prorata based on the cancellation date. BYOP charged per meal plan usage including the cost of dining dollars spent. No reduction will be granted after the sixth week of the term for all meal plans.

For full time undergraduate students, the first Friday of the semester is the last day to reduce credit load (drop from full to part-time) without full tuition liability.

There is no reduction in tuition, room and board, or fees in the case of late entrance, absence, suspension, expulsion or dismissal. Bookstore vouchers are non-refundable. Financial aid will be adjusted accordingly. Refunds will be processed by the original method of payment.

Federal Title IV Refund Policy: Term Withdrawal, Financial Aid, and Tuition Reduction Eligibility

Students must notify the Center for Student Success in person, in writing, or by telephone of their intention to withdraw from an individual course, all classes for the semester, or the program. Reduction of tuition charges will be based on this date of last attendance as received and recorded in the Registrar’s Office. If no official notification is received and no other documentation of the dates is available, the midpoint of the semester will be used as the term withdrawal date. Dates for determining reduction of tuition charges are published in semester bulletins and Student Accounts’ Office materials. Fees are not subject to reduction.

Recipients of Federal Title IV student aid who withdraw from all classes in a semester (term withdrawal) earn eligibility for federal student aid on a daily proportioned basis up until 60% of the semester has passed. All days during the semester (except for breaks of 5 days or more and their attendant weekends) are counted. If a student has not earned all of their federal assistance by the date of their term withdrawal, funds are returned to federal programs in the following order: Federal Direct Subsidized Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Direct PLUS Loans, Direct Graduate PLUS Loans, Federal Pell Grants, Federal SEOG, Federal TEACH Grant, other Title IV assistance. Students are responsible for repaying remaining loan funds according to the terms of their promissory notes. Federal Work Study earnings are not required to be repaid. Federal grant repayments owed by the student after school return of Federal funds are limited to 50% of the remaining unearned grant received. Note: Because tuition charges continue to be assessed by Student Accounts at a percentage rate higher than the rate at which federal policy considers Title IV student aid to be earned, students may incur a sizeable uncovered debt to Nazareth College when the college makes required repayment of unearned financial aid to its source. Gift assistance provided by Nazareth College continues to be credited in the same proportion as Student Accounts charges tuition.

Post withdrawal disbursements of federal student aid for which the student may be eligible will be made first from grant sources, then from loans. Within 14 days of determination of term withdrawal, the college will notify the student in writing the amount and type of funds available for post withdrawal disbursement together with explanation of the option to accept or decline all or part of this aid. The student must advise the college of his/her decision within 14 days or the potential disbursement is forfeit. Students will not be eligible for a late disbursement of their loan if it is the second disbursement of the loan e.g. a student borrows for fall and spring semesters, fall disbursement is received, student registers for spring but withdraws before disbursement is made. This student will not be eligible for the second disbursement of his/her loan.

General Information - Financial Aid

Nazareth College encourages students who feel that they and their families are unable to afford the full cost of a private education to apply for all sources of financial aid for which they may be eligible.

Qualifying students will receive a financial aid “package” composed of a combination of scholarship, grant, loan and work study assistance, which will vary according to demonstrated need and individual circumstances. Awards are renewed annually, contingent upon satisfactory academic progress and program pursuit and, when applicable, timeliness of application and continued demonstrated need for assistance.* Scholarship students must meet other qualifications, such as maintaining a particular cumulative GPA (grade point average).

* See also Satisfactory Academic Progress later in this section for information on satisfactory academic progress standards which apply to all federal, state and Nazareth programs.

All inquiries about financial assistance and scholarships should be directed to the Financial Aid Office, Nazareth College by calling 585-389-2310 or emailing finaid@naz.edu.

Matriculated students enrolled in one of Nazareth College’s study abroad Residential Programs, Exchange Programs, or Short Term Programs and charged Nazareth College tuition will be eligible for Nazareth College Scholarships/Grants, NYS aid, and Federal aid as applicable. (Note, however, that Nazareth room grants are not awarded for terms off campus.) Matriculated students enrolled in another college or institution’s study abroad program and not paying Nazareth College tuition will not be eligible for Nazareth College Scholarships/Grants. The student must apply for and be approved for a consortium or contractual agreement through the Financial Aid Office to determine if Federal and/or NYS financial assistance is applicable.

Prospective applicants for financial aid should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the February 15 priority filing deadline. Early Decision candidates should file the College Scholarship Service’s Profile (CSS) form by December 1st and the FAFSA by February 15. Returning Nazareth students should file the renewal FAFSA no later than May 1 (April 1 for summer financial aid) each year. An additional application is required for the NYS TAP award.

Federal Pell Grants are available from the federal government to help high need undergraduate students meet the cost of education. Application is made by completing the FAFSA each year. Upon receiving the Student Aid Report (SAR), students should review the document with care and make any necessary changes online.

Students who already earned a bachelor’s degree are not eligible.

Federal TEACH Grant

The Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants up to $2,000 per semester to academically qualified students who intend to teach in a designated high-need subject area in an elementary or secondary school or educational service agency that serves students from low-income families. In order to receive the grant, an eligible student must complete a TEACH grant application, Agreement To Serve, Counseling and FAFSA annually. Applicants should be aware that failure to complete the service obligation will result in the grant being converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan with interest accured and capitalized from the date of the original disbursement. **TEACH grant funding and continuance is not guaranteed and is subject to federal budget approval.

These federal student loans are available through the U.S. Department of Education for matriculated students enrolled for 6 credit hours or more each semester. First time borrowers must complete entrance counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) at www.studentloans.gov.

At any point during the process a student may reduce the amount of the certified loan or decline the entire amount. Students are responsible for monitoring their own borrowing while at Nazareth College.

Consolidation and Deferments

Students who have borrowed under any single or combination of federal student loan programs are eligible for a Federal Consolidation Loan which may extend repayment beyond 10 years at an interest rate which is the weighted average of the underlying loans rounded to the nearest 1/8 of one percent capped at 8.25%. Student borrowers are eligible for a variety of loan deferments, for example, enrollment at half-time or greater, or forbearance for unemployment or economic hardship. Under forbearance, students are responsible for loan interest. Contact the Financial Aid Office for details and information about documentation required for eligibility.

Additional Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan

Please visit our website at http://www.naz.edu/financial-aid/types-of-aid/loans/loans-federal-plus-loans for the most current PLUS application process.

Federal Campus-Based Programs

Nazareth College participates in the three federal on-campus programs: Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Federal Perkins Loans and Federal Work Study (FWS) Program. Students must file a FAFSA yearly for a review of eligibility. Awards vary with individual circumstances, full- or part-time status and funding made available to the college by Congressional action. Undergraduate students already holding a bachelor’s degree are ineligible for FSEOG.

Return to top

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)

Federal grants ranging from $100 - $1,000 awarded to students who are Pell Grant recipients. Amounts vary based on the limited availability of funds. FAFSA must be filed annually. FSEOG is subject to continual Federal funding.

Return to top

Federal Perkins Loans

Federal Perkins Loans enable students with exceptional demonstrated need to meet part of their cost of education through low-interest borrowing. Because funds under this program are limited, the college normally restricts student eligibility to a maximum of $2,000 per year. Federal Perkins Loans carry a 5 percent interest rate beginning nine months after the student is no longer attending at least half time and are repayable within 10 years. First time recipients will be notified of signing procedures which also include completion of an entrance interview and master promissory note at https://ipromise.campuspartners.com. Perkins Loan funds are credited to student term bills on the first day of the semester and within 3 business days of when the note has been signed for fall semester and by the first day of spring semester.

Borrowers of Federal Perkins Loans may be entitled to deferments of repayment for periods ranging from nine months to three years, or partial cancellation for service that includes August 14, 2008 or begins on or after that date. For additional information on deferment and/or cancellation criteria, go to www.mycampusloan.com and click on “Information Center”.

Federal Work Study Program

Students awarded Federal Work Study as part of their financial aid receive preference for placement in on-campus jobs or in the college’s Partners For Learning/Serving programs of community service. It is the student’s own responsibility to follow through with placement procedure and be a willing worker. Awards normally correspond to employment of 10 hours per week or less during the academic year at a wage rate of $8.75 per hour. Students are paid by check or direct deposit to a personal account of their choice every two weeks for hours worked. Because they receive direct payment, the FWS award is not credited the student’s term bill.

Veteran Benefits

Students may be eligible for veteran educational benefits. Consult the Nazareth College Office of Veterans’ Affairs or the Senior Assistant Director of Financial Aid regarding Veteran educational awards information.

Other Outside Awards

Students are encouraged to apply for any outside grants and scholarships for which they may be eligible. VESID, AmeriCorps, Social Security Administration and Bureau of Indian Affairs are examples of outside agencies which help qualified students.

Applications for the Work Incentive program are made through the New York State Department of Social Services.

All scholarships from sources outside the Nazareth College campus must be reported to the Financial Aid Office as soon as they are awarded. Checks in support of these awards should be directed to the Financial Aid Office. Federal regulations require that all known sources of assistance be taken into account in determining the fulfillment of demonstrated need for student aid. For this reason, it is the policy of the college to utilize outside scholarships in the following manner:
• To reduce any unmet federal demonstrated need
• To reduce student self help in the form of Federal Work Study, Perkins or Stafford Loans
• When Nazareth gift plus outside scholarships total more than the cost of tuition, to reduce campus gift assistance as appropriate to individual circumstances.

Rights and Responsibilities of Recipients

Students seeking financial assistance are responsible for filing timely, valid applications for the programs under which they may request aid. Additional information regarding applications and all student financial aid rights and responsibilities may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office, Smyth Hall, room 43.

Request for review of financial aid awards must be made in writing to the Director of Financial Aid and be accompanied by suitable photocopied documentation. Such requests will be reviewed by a financial aid committee including the Director and Vice President for Enrollment.

Students who federal aid has been suspended due to not meeting the College’s published satisfactory academic progress (SAP) policy may regain aid eligibility for the future semesters by either: a) submitting a successful appeal to the Director of Financial Aid or b) successfully meeting SAP requirements.

Male students must have on file confirmation that they have registered with the Selective Service (the Draft) or that they are not required to do so before the college will disburse Federal student aid. Students reaching their 18th birthday while matriculated at Nazareth must register promptly.

Students are responsible to document and make any appropriate revisions whenever Social Security Administration records report a mismatch of information on their Federal Aid Application (FAFSA).

Students who are non-citizens but hold a permanent resident certificate must be able to document their eligibility to receive assistance from Federal student aid programs. Wherever direct computer matched documentation from Immigration and Naturalization Service cannot be made, students may be required to obtain from INS a completed Form G640.

Verification

The U.S. Department of Education randomly selects approximately 30% of the FAFSA forms that are filed for a process called ‘verification’. If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be required to either authorize the IRS date match on your FAFSA form or provide copies of official IRS tax transcripts. Copies of actual tax return are no longer permitted. In addition, you must complete a Federal Verification Worksheet in order to verify household and untaxed income information. The Federal Verification Worksheet is available at http://www.naz.edu/financial-aid/forms. Students will be contacted via their Nazareth College email if they are selected for federal verification. The required information must be provided within 30 days of request in order to receive any federal financial aid. For returning students, financial aid packages will not be completed until federal verification requirements are satisfactorily completed.

Enrollment Status Verification

Nazareth College participates in the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) located in Herndon, Virginia. At least four times a semester (before classes begin; at the close of registration; after the last day to withdraw and receive a grade of W; and on the last class day of term) the college submits a computer file of students’ enrollment status to the Clearinghouse which, in turn, supplies verification of enrollment to all lending institutions and the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). All loan deferment forms are forwarded to the NSC. Nazareth College does not supply this information directly to lending institutions.

If a student has registered late and/or had a drop/add/withdrawal processed to the term registration, this information may not be reported to the Clearinghouse until the next submission. The Clearinghouse asks that if a student receives a collection letter, the student is to follow the procedures as outlined.

  • Call the lending agency to see if a deferment form was received between the time the Clearinghouse supplied the information and the lending agency sent the collection letter.
  • You may verify your enrollment status by accessing the Clearinghouse website: www.nslc.org. In the “Students” section, you may confirm your own status and verify that your lender is using the Clearinghouse to supply enrollment data.
  • If an emergency exists, e.g. a student is being threatened with default, the Records Assistant (585-389-2803) may be able to intervene on the student’s behalf by faxing a verification of enrollment letter to the lending agency.

Default

Recipients of student aid of any description may not be in default on a student loan taken to attend any institution nor owe a refund to a federal grant program at any institution. Additional documentation from sources such as a previous lender or guarantee agency may be required to update records. Parents borrowing on behalf of a dependent student must also clear federal review demonstrating that they themselves are not in default on any student loan or owe repayment of any federal monies.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal Financial Aid

Federal regulations require that schools monitor the academic progress of every student who is eligible for federal Title IV  financial aid, which includes the Pell Grant, TEACH Grant, SEOG, Direct Loan, Parent PLUS loan, Work Study and Perkins Loan. Federal standards of satisfactory academic progress SAP include a qualitative (GPA) measurement, a quantitative (PACE) measurement, and a maximum time frame measurement. If one of the measures is not being met, the student is not making SAP. SAP is measured and reviewed at the end of each payment period, specifically end of fall semester, end of spring semester, and end of summer II (combining summer I and summer II courses).

(NOTE: Due to timing of SAP review, financial aid previously awarded for future terms will be revoked immediately if SAP requirements are not being met.)

Students who fail to meet both the GPA and PACE satisfactory academic progress requirements will be placed on financial aid warnings; no action is required by the student. Financial aid warning lasts for one payment period only, during which the student may continue to receive federal financial aid. Students who fail to meet the GPA and PACE satisfactory progress after the warning period will lose their federal aid eligibility unless they successfully appeal and are placed on financial aid probation, with or without an academic plan (See details below). Students who have reached the maximum time frame are no longer eligible for financial aid; they are not eligible for financial aid warning or financial aid probation.

Students will be notified in writing, by the Nazareth College Financial Aid Office if they have been placed on financial aid warning or financial aid probation.

Qualitative Standard (GPA):

Student (full or part-time) are required to maintain the following cumulative GPA

Cumulative Credits Earned

Grade Level

Cumulative GPA

027

Freshman

1.8

2857

Sophomore

1.9

5887

Junior

88Graduation

Senior

2.0

Students in the first year of college are evaluated as freshman even if they have an advanced class standing due to college-level credits earned in high school.

Quantitative (PACE) Standards:

Undergraduate students must complete a minimum percentage of cumulative attempted credits or PACE. PACE is calculated by dividing the cumulative credit hours earned by the cumulative credit hours attempted. Remedial courses are not counted in this calculation.

Students must maintain a minimum pace of 66.667%.

Maximum Time Frame:

Undergraduate students are limited to a total of 180 attempted credits. Students will not be eligible for financial aid warning or financial aid probation once they have reached their maximum time frame. Students who have changed their degree program or are pursuing a second degree may submit an appeal request to the Financial Aid Office to request consideration for a one time extension of the maximum time frame.

Program Completion:

Once the student completes all the academic requirements for their program, the student is considered to have completed the degree program and is no longer eligible for further federal aid for that program.

Academic Amnesty:

All academic coursework taken by the student in attendance at Nazareth College must be included in determining federal SAP. This federal SAP policy is exclusive of any Nazareth College academic policy related to re-admission and GPA calculation. Federal SAP regulations do not recognize any provision for academic amnesty or renewal.

Transfer Coursework:

Transfer credits accepted towards the student’s current program (including consortium agreements and Study Abroad courses) are counted in both cumulative credits attempted and cumulative credits completed. Grades earned in transfer credits are not included in cumulative GPA.

Incomplete Coursework (I):

Incomplete coursework that is resolved by the specified date on the student’s incomplete petition form will result in a grade and that grade will be counted in the cumulative GPA. The credits will be counted in the cumulative credits attempted and the cumulative credits earned. The (I) grade remains on the transcript but the (I) grade is not counted in the cumulative GPA.

Incomplete coursework that is not resolved by the specified date on the student’s incomplete petition form will result in an (F) grade. The credits will be counted in the cumulative credits attempted but zero credits earned. The (F) grade will be counted in the cumulative GPA.

Withdrawn Coursework (W):

Courses that were dropped during Add/Drop period will neither be counted as credits attempted nor earned and will not be counted in the cumulative GPA.

Withdrawn coursework that results in a (W) grade will be counted in the cumulative credits attempted but zero credits earned. Grades are not included in the cumulative GPA calculation.

Satisfactory (S), Unsatisfactory (U), Audit (AU), Failed (F) Coursework:

Courses with a Satisfactory (S) grade are counted as credits attempted and credits earned; no grade will be counted in the cumulative GPA.

Courses with a Unsatisfactory (U) grade are counted as credits attempted and zero credits earned; no grade will be counted in the cumulative GPA.

Courses with a Audit (AU) grade are not counted as credits attempted nor credits earned; no grade will be counted in the cumulative GPA.

Courses with a Failed (F) grade are counted as credits attempted and zero credits earned; grade will be counted in the cumulative GPA.

Repeated Coursework (R):

Undergraduate students are eligible to receive federal financial aid for repeating a class one time. If a student received a grade for the first attempted class, those credits will be counted in the cumulative credits attempted and earned. The credits for the repeated class will be counted as additional credits attempted only and zero credits earned. The second grade is calculated in the cumulative GPA.

Financial Aid Warning:

As stated earlier, a student failing to meet SAP standards, at the time of review, will be placed on financial aid warning for one payment period. The student will be eligible for federal aid during the financial aid warning period and no further action is required by the student.

A student who meets SAP standards at the end of the financial aid warning term is eligible for continued federal aid.

A student who does not meet SAP standards at the end of the financial aid warning term will not be eligible for federal aid in subsequent semesters until SAP standards are met or the student successfully appeals and is placed on financial aid probation with or without an academic plan.

Financial Aid Appeal Process/Financial Aid Probation:

If, at the end of the financial aid warning term, a student is still not meeting SAP requirements, the student may submit an appeal based on extenuating circumstances only. Extenuating circumstances would be considered personal illness or injury, death of a close relative, or other special circumstances. The written appeal must be sent to the Director of Financial Aid and it must explain why satisfactory progress was not met and what has changed that will allow the minimum standards to be met.

If the appeal is denied, the student will not be eligible for federal financial aid in subsequent semesters until SAP standards are met.

If the appeal is approved by the Financial Aid Office, the student will be placed on financial aid probation, with or without an academic plan, and will be eligible for federal financial aid during the probationary period.

  • If it determined that the student should be able to achieve the SAP requirements by the end of the probation semester, the student will be placed on financial aid probation without an academic plan. The student will be eligible for federal aid for the probation semester. If at the end of the probation semester, SAP standards are still not being met, the student cannot appeal again nor will he or she be eligible for federal aid until SAP requirements are achieved.
  • If it is determine the student will require more than one payment period to achieve SAP standards, the student will be placed on financial aid probation with an academic plan. The academic plan will be developed by the Academic Advisement Center in collaboration with the Financial Aid Office. The student’s progress will be monitored at the end of each subsequent payment period by both offices to determine if the student is meeting the requirements specified in the academic plan. If the student is meeting the requirements of the academic plan, the student will be eligible to receive federal aid as long as the student continues to meet the academic plan requirements.

Regaining Eligibility:

Students whose federal aid has been suspended due to not meeting SAP requirements will regain federal aid eligibility for future semesters upon meeting SAP requirements.

New York State Financial Aid-Academic Progress Guidelines

Note that the satisfactory academic progress guidelines for NYS aid differ from the federal satisfactory academic progress criteria.

State requirements demand that students must meet the “standards of program pursuit,” defined by state regulations as receiving a passing or failing grade in a certain percentage of a full-time course load.

Non-HEOP Students receiving 1st TAP award in 2010-11 and thereafter:

NYS Payment Number Number of Credits You Must Have Completed in the Previous Semester** Total Number of Earned Credits** Minimum Cumulative GPA
1st payment 0 0 0
2 6 6 1.5
3 9 15 1.8
4 9 27 1.8
5 12 39 2.0
6 12 51 2.0
7 12 66 2.0
8 12 81 2.0

 

HEOP Students receiving 1st TAP award in 2006-07 and thereafter as well as non-HEOP students receiving 1st TAP award in 2007-08 through 2009-10:

NYS Payment Number Number of Credits You Must Have Completed in the Previous Semester** Total Number of Earned Credits** Minimum Cumulative GPA
1st payment 0 0 0
2 6 3 1.1
3 9 9 1.2
4 9 21 1.3
5 12 33 2.0
6 12 45 2.0
7 12 60 2.0
8 12 75 2.0
9 12 90 2.0
10 12 105 2.0

 

* Only students enrolled in the HEOP program are eligible for ten TAP payments. The maximum number of payments for all other students is eight. 

** Incomplete course credits cannot be included unless they are resolved to a passing or failing grade by the end of the following term. A completed course that results in an “F” grade is included in the credits completed in the previous semester. Only passing grades are included in the number of courses earned. 

Note: Students placed on academic probation or part-time status by the Academic Standards Committee who do not meet the minimum guidelines above will be subject to lost or reduced financial aid eligibility. 

Loss of Good Academic Standing: Students who lose good academic standing in a term when they receive a state grant or scholarship are not eligible for an award for the next term. 

Reinstatement of Good Academic Standing: Students who have lost good academic standing may restore this standing in one of the following ways:

  1. make up past academic deficiencies by completing one or more terms of study without receiving any state grants or scholarships;
  2. be readmitted to school after an absence of at least one calendar year; or
  3. transfer to another institution; or
  4. be granted a waiver.

One-time Waiver: NYS permits students to receive a one-time waiver of the good academic standing requirement as an undergraduate student. Note: Students are required to maintain a “C”average (2.0 cumulative GPA) after receiving the equivalent of two or more full years of NYS aid. Waivers of the “C” average requirement are separate from the one-time waiver and may be granted more than once if circumstances warrant. 

Students may be eligible to receive a waiver for state aid if one of the following extenuating circumstances has resulted in failure to meet the stated requirements:

1.      Death of a relative

2.      Personal injury/illness

3.      Other extenuating circumstance if it directly resulted in your failure to meet the NYS requirements.

To be considered for a waiver, you must submit a written appeal to the Director of Financial Aid. The Academic Standards Committee reviews all appeal requests and makes the final decision. If the waiver is granted, your NYS awards will be reinstated for the semester; however, your academic progress must improve to meet the minimum requirements prior to the start of the following semester.

Note: “W” grades will not satisfy this requirement. Grades for repeated courses, for which students have already received credit (D , D, D+, C-) are excluded when calculating the semester hours required for TAP eligibility. Full time students repeating a course for which they have already received credit must carry 12 additional hours to be eligible for certification for TAP and other New York State programs. All students who have applied and been found financially eligible for TAP will be certified by the College if they are registered full time as of the TAP Certification Date. (See Academic Calendar for the Fall and Spring semester TAP certification dates.

Nazareth College Financial Aid (Scholarships/Grants)
All scholarships and grants require full-time attendance. Scholarship eligibility is reviewed annually based on Nazareth GPA. If the minimum requirement is not met, one semester of probation is granted. After the probationary period, if the cumulative GPA remains below the requirement, the scholarship will be reduced by 20% of the original value. If, after subsequent semesters, the cumulative GPA requirement is met, reinstatement of the full award may be requested for future semesters. Waivers of this policy are not granted.

Need-based grant renewal is reviewed annually based on financial need as demonstrated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Nazareth need-based grants also require a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA for renewal.

Nazareth College Merit Scholarships

Nazareth College has a wide range of merit scholarships that are awarded by the Admissions Committee at the time of acceptance to freshmen and transfer students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and potential, regardless of financial circumstances. Financial need is not a factor in consideration for these awards. No separate application is necessary. All scholarships require full-time attendance.

Nazareth College Scholarships may be used toward tuition charges only. When combined with other grants, scholarships, or benefits restricted to tuition charges (i.e. NYS TAP, Veteran’s/ROTC tuition benefits, Tuition Exchange, etc.), the combination may not exceed full tuition.
