Federal Student Aid
Undergraduate students (B.A.R. and A.Div.) who have need of assistance in order to continue their education may make application for a Pell Grant. Students who can show “need” may qualify for from $500 to $4,700 per year.* Funds received through this source must be used for educational expenses.
*Figures are adjusted annually by United States Department of Education
All paperwork must be processed and returned to the school prior to enrollment in order to avoid personal payment of tuition, etc. Students who wish to apply for a Pell Grant should make a formal request through the Dean’s Office. After an interview with the Dean, the student will be issued a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This packet must be filled out accurately and completely and mailed to the address on the application (or see www.fafsa.ed.gov). If a grant is awarded, the funds will be disbursed by the Business Office.
All financial aid is disbursed at the beginning (usually the fourth week) of each enrollment period, one-half at the beginning of the fall semester and one-half at the beginning of the spring semester. Seminary policy requires that all aid be used first to pay tuition, fees, housing costs, or other institutional expenses.
