Financial Aid Information


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 all classes for the semester or the program. Reduction of tuition and fee 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 and fee charges are published on the Student Accounts’ website.

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 Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Direct Subsidized Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Direct 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 and fee 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. Students must file a FAFSA each year to qualify for need-based assistance. Scholarship students must meet other qualifications, such as maintaining a particular cumulative GPA (grade point average), or continuance in the major for which the scholarship was awarded. All Nazareth College scholarships/grants require full time attendance.

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

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 1 priority filing deadline. Early Decision I candidates should file the FAFSA by November 15, Early Decision II candidates should file the FAFSA by January 10. Returning Nazareth students should file the renewal FAFSA no later than March 15 (March 1 for summer financial aid) each year. An additional application is required for the NYS TAP award.

Federal Pell Grants

Federal Pell Grants are available from the federal government to help high need undergraduate students meet the cost of education. Pell Grant eligibility is determined by filing a FAFSA annually and is based upon the federal needs analysis. Grant amounts vary according to Congressional appropriation, full-time or part-time enrollment and cost of education. The maximum Federal Pell Grant for 2017-2018 is $5,920.00. 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 accrued and capitalized from the date of the original disbursement. **TEACH grant funding and continuance is not guaranteed and is subject to federal budget approval.

Federal Direct Loan Program (DL)

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. Students are notified annually of their loan eligibility through the college’s award letter. They receive disclosure notices from the federal processor after a loan has been certified by the Financial Aid Office, and they are notified by Student Accounts once funds have been credited to their student account. 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.

This time limit does not apply to Direct Unsubsidized Loans or Direct PLUS Loans. If this limit applies to you, you may not receive Direct Unsubsidized Loans for more than 150 percent of the published length of your program. This is called your “maximum eligibility period.” Your maximum eligibility period is generally based on the published length of your current program. You can usually find the published length of any program of study in your school’s catalog.


New Federal loan borrowers after October 1, 1998 who have been employed for at least five consecutive, complete school years as a full-time teacher in an elementary or secondary school designated as a low-income school may qualify for Stafford Loan forgiveness of up to $17,500. Additional requirements include not being in student loan default; not receiving a benefit for the same teaching service through the AmeriCorps Program; at least one of the five years of qualifying teaching service must be after the 1997-98 academic year; and the loan for which forgiveness is sought was received before the end of the student’s fifth year of qualifying teaching.

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.

Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study (FWS) award provides employment opportunities in various campus offices. Work-Study awards are offered to full-time students with financial need, based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). On average, students work 10-12 hours per week. Students are paid at an hourly rate and receive paychecks every two weeks for the hours worked. The Work-Study hourly wage at Nazareth College is currently $9.70 per hour; because they receive direct payment, the FWS award is not credited on 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. Access-VR, 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 how to apply and all student financial aid rights and responsibilities may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office, Smyth Hall, Room 43.

Financial aid policies, consumer information, and contact information for assistance in obtaining institutional or financial aid information may be found at https://www2.naz.edu/tuition-aid

Verification

Verification is a federal review process required by the U.S. Department of Education by which we compare information from the completed FASFA with the student and parent federal income tax information and other related documents. The U.S. Department of Education determines which student FASFAs are selected for verification.

If your FASFA is selected for verification, the taxable income must be verified by using the FAFSA’S IRS Data Retrieval Tool or by comparing it to an IRS Tax Return Transcript available at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows the student and parent(s) to pull in data from filed federal tax returns into the FAFSA. Students are strongly encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. 

In addition, a Federal Verification Worksheet must be completed to verify household and untaxed income information. The Federal Verification Worksheet (one for dependent students, one for independent students) is available at: http://www2.naz.edu/tuition-aid/forms/. Students will be contacted via their Nazareth College email if they are selected for financial 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 determined until 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.

Return to top

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.

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.

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.
