Financial Aid

  

IF YOU ARE INQUIRING ABOUT WORKSTUDY, PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE FIRST FOR AVAILABLE POSITIONS.

 

 The Office of Student Financial Aid provides students with assistance in acquiring resources to attend Rose State College. Students who meet eligibility requirements may qualify to receive federal, state or institutional funds. Assistance may be in the form of scholarships, grants, loans or work programs.

Students are encouraged to complete an application for assistance in January, February or March for the upcoming school year. Early application and completion of all required verification assures the student of best consideration for all programs. Program funding is limited. Usually, students who have applied and completed their files before June 1 are able to receive awards early enough to assist them for the fall semester. Students that wait until later to apply do not allow sufficient time for the process to be completed for a fall semester. A new FAFSA must be completed each school year.

The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in the Student Services Building in Room 200.  Our federal school code is 009185

IMPORTANT CHANGES STARTING 2013-2014

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO FEDERAL PROCESSES FOR 2012-2013 AND BEYOND

LIMITATION ON NUMBER OF SEMESTERS OF PELL GRANT ELIGIBILITY

Beginning with the 2012-2013 FAFSA all students who are Pell Grant recipients (including students who have previously received Pell Grant) have a limit of 12 full-time equivalent semesters (600%) of eligibility. After 12 full-time equivalent semesters, eligibility ends. Students can check their eligibility used by going to http://www.nslds.ed.gov .

ABILITY TO BENEFIT

Beginning with July 1, 2012 and thereafter, a student enrolling in a college, university, technical center or career school will no longer be eligible for Federal Title IV student financial assistance unless they have a high school diploma, GED, or has completed requirements for high school through home schooling. New students will no longer have previous options such as testing or completing 6 credits of college level coursework to qualify for Federal Tile IV assistance.
Students who, prior to 7-1-12, were enrolled in an academic program that was eligible for Federal Title IV assistance may still be able to utilize those options to include previous ATB tests. Check with the Financial Aid Office for more information.


FEDERAL STUDENT LOANS

Students borrowing a Subsidized Direct Stafford Loan between 7/1/12 and 7/1/14 (a two year period) should be aware that for this two year period the interest on these loans, though in all prior years was paid by the U.S. Department of Education will not be paid during the six month grace period provided to students when they are no longer enrolled on at least a half time-time basis. Like the Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan the interest will accrue during grace periods. During deferment periods the interest on Subsidized Direct Stafford loans will still be paid by the U.S. Department of Education. The Fixed interest rates for Unsubsidized Loans disbursed on or after 7/1/12 will be 6.8%. Any Direct Plus Loan disbursed on or after 7/1/12 will have a fixed interest rate of 7.9%.

Effective for loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2012, the law eliminates the authority of the Department to offer any repayment incentives to Direct Loan borrowers to encourage on-time repayment of loans, including any reduction in the interest rate or origination fee. As a result, the up-front interest rebate that has been provided to Direct Loan borrowers at the time of loan disbursement will not be offered on any Direct Loan with a first disbursement date that is on or after July 1, 2012.
