15 FINANCIAL AID Island Drafting and Technical Institute is committed to providing educational opportunities for all qualified students regardless of financial need. A wide variety of financial aid programs makes it possible for even the neediest student to gain a college education. The college offers institutional scholarships and participates in Federal and State financial aid programs, including grants and loans. The amount of money available is based upon the student's financial need, which is determined by subtracting the amount of the family's resources available for college expenses from the estimated cost of attending the college. In order to meet a student's financial need, the financial aid administrator may suggest a package of aid that includes a combination of a grant, a part-time job, and a loan. Financial need for all programs--state, Federal, and institutional--is measured by a comprehensive financial statement, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The college will defer any tuition payments due from a student upon application by the student for a grant or loan for the expected amount. Funds received by the college on behalf of a student will first be applied towards the student's tuition. After the student's tuition is paid in full, he/she will receive whatever balance remains. Students are encouraged to apply for financial aid at least eight weeks before the beginning of the term in order that the funds will be available in the first month. Students will receive their payments within one month of the college's receipt of the funds. Application Procedures All new students should contact the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible after admission. Application for all aid programs is made by filing a single document, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is available from the high school or directly from the Island Drafting and Technical Institute financial aid office. The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for the Federal Pell grant and to determine family contribution for a Guaranteed Student Loan. It is also used to determine eligibility for New York State aid through the Tuition Assistance Program. The Financial Aid Office will help students fill out the form and secure necessary documentation. Reinstatement Students who lose their eligibility for financial aid may be reinstated by making up the deficiency without benefit of financial aid or by being readmitted to the college after an absence of at least one calendar year. Financial Aid Distribution Policy If a student withdraws and a refund is due to Title IV Programs, the programs will be repaid up to the amount received from each program in the following order: Federal Plus, Federal Direct, Federal PELL, Federal SEOG. Financial Aid Repayment Policy If a student withdraws and has received a cash disbursement of Title IV funds (excluding CWS and Part B Loans), the student is entitled to the corresponding portion of the living expense allowance for the enrollment period. Any additional funds received must be repaid to the college. 15

16 Policies and Procedures for Verification This institution has developed the following Policies and Procedures regarding the verification of information provided by applicants for Federal Aid under the Title IV Programs. 1. Only those students who are selected for verification by the Department of Education will be required to submit supporting documentation. 2. For Pell, the student will have 60 days after his/her last day of attendance or the end of the academic year, whichever is earlier, to complete verification. However, in the interim, the student must have made arrangements with the school for payment of all tuition and fees due or risk termination at the option of the school. After the passage of the aforementioned period, all financial aid that might have been due is forfeited. 3. All students will be notified on a timely basis if they have been selected for verification, and the supporting documentation that is required. The institution will use as its reference the most recent verification guide supplied by the Department of Education. At that time the student will be informed of the time parameters and the consequences of not completing the verification cycle. The institution will notify the student of the result of verification and any other documentation needed. The institution will assist the student in correcting any information that is inaccurate. 4. If the student supplies inaccurate information on any application and refuses to correct same after being advised by the institution, the school must refer this case to the Department of Education for resolution. Unless required by the Department of Education, no financial aid will be disbursed to the student.

Repayment begins nine months after graduation or leaving school, or after a student drops below half-time status, and may extend over a period of ten years. An additional ten-year extension of repayment is permitted for low income borrowers. Payment may be deferred for certain categories of borrowers. Federal Direct Loans. These loans include the Federal Direct Subsidized Loan, the Federal Direct unsubsidized Loan, and the Federal Direct Parent Loan. These loans are provided directly from the U.S. Department of Education via the Federal Direct Loan Program. These loans are available 17

18 through the Financial Aid Office. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for information. To be eligible for a subsidized Federal Direct Loan of up to $3500 for year one and $4500 for year two, you must apply for a Federal Pell Grant and submit an Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR) to the financial aid office to evaluate your need and amount eligible for. Students who do not qualify for a subsidized Federal Direct Loan, or need funds beyond these limits should speak to the financial aid officer about an unsubsidized Direct Loan or Federal Direct Parent Loan (FPLUS). The Parent Loan may require your parents to have a good credit rating. Students may defer repayment on the subsidized and the unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans until you leave school. Unsubsidized Direct Loans may be made per school year in amounts up to an additional $2000 for dependent students and $6000 for independent students. FPLUS loans may be in larger amounts according to parent need and capability to repay. Further information and any questions should be directed to the Financial Aid Office. Bureau of Indian Affairs Aid to Native Americans--Higher Education Assistance Program. To be eligible, the applicant must: (1) be an enrolled member of an American Indian, Eskimo or Aleut tribe, band or group recognized by the Bureau of Indian Affairs; (2) be enrolled in or accepted for enrollment as an undergraduate in an approved college or university; (3) be pursuing at least a two-year degree; and (4) demonstrate financial need.

Application forms may be obtained from and submitted to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Federal Building, Room 523, 100 South Clinton Street, Syracuse, NY An application is necessary for each year of study. Application deadlines, strictly adhered to, are: (1) for the fall semester, July 1; (2) for the spring semester, October 15; and (3) for the summer semester, May 15. An official need analysis from the college financial aid office is also required each year. Moreover, each first-time applicant must obtain tribal enrollment certification from the enrollment clerk which records enrollment for the tribe. Awards are contingent upon funds available and are based on financial need. Award amounts are equal to the difference between total student expenses and financial assistance from all other sources, as indicated by financial aid administrators. Veterans Administration Educational Benefits (VA). Many programs of educational assistance benefits are available to those who have served in the active military, naval or air service and to their families. These programs include the following: Veterans Educational Assistance Post-Vietnam Era Veterans' Educational Assistance All-Volunteer Force Educational Assistance Vocational Rehabilitation for Service-Disabled Veterans Receiving Unemployability VA Compensation Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance Vocational Training for Certain Veterans Receiving VA Pension Detailed information on all veterans' benefits can be obtained from the financial aid officer or 18

19 from offices of the Veterans Administration. New York State Programs Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). This is an entitlement program. There is neither a qualifying examination nor a limited number of awards. The applicant must: (1) be a New York State resident and U.S. citizen, or a permanent resident alien, a paroled refugee or a conditional entrant to the United States; (2) be enrolled full-time and matriculated in an approved New York State post-secondary program; (3) be charged tuition of at least $ per year; and (4) meet income eligibility requirements. The Higher Education Services Corporation determines each applicant's eligibility and mails an award certificate directly to the applicant indicating the amount of the grant. The applicant presents or sends the School Copy of this award certificate when tuition payment is due. Postsecondary institutions normally defer payment of tuition on the basis of receipt of the award certificate. Institutions actually receive TAP payments after they certify student eligibility. The amount of the TAP award is scaled according to type of school, level of study, tuition charge, and net taxable income. Satisfactory Academic Progress For TAP To be eligible for financial assistance under the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), students must make satisfactory progress toward the completion of a diploma or degree. The following chart illustrates minimum academic progress requirements: Before being certified for this payment A student must have accrued at least this many Semester- Hour Credits With at least this grade point average 1 st nd rd th th th Students enrolled in the degree program must complete the program within three years of program entry or financial aid will be jeopardized. Diploma program students must complete within one and one-half years of program entry. Students who are on academic probation or who have been advised that they are not making satisfactory academic progress may request a review of such determination. After an initial review by the Financial Aid Office, an appeal, if appropriate, may be made to the President. Mitigating or special circumstances may be considered during the initial review and appeal. Aid for Part-Time Study (APTS). Applicants must apply for this campus-based program through the Financial Aid Office. APTS is not an entitlement program. Participating institutions select recipients. To be eligible, students must: (1) be enrolled part-time in an approved undergraduate degree program or credit- 19

20 bearing certificate of diploma program in New York State (part-time study for APTS is defined as enrollment for at least six but less than twelve semester hours); (2) have earned at least six semester hours of credit; (3) meet the income limits; (4) be a New York State resident; (5) be either a U.S. citizen, permanent resident alien, or refugee; (6) apply for a Federal Pell Grant if eligible for Pell; (7) have a tuition charge of at least $100 per year; and (8) have remaining TAP eligibility. The funding available for all participating institutions is set each year by the New York State Legislature, and allocated by the Higher Education Services Corporation. The amount received by a particular college is determined by that school's share of the total part-time degree program enrollment at all participating institutions. The number of awards and amount of each award is determined by individual institutions. Recipients must be in good academic standing in accordance with Commissioner's Regulations and must not be in default of a loan guaranteed by the Higher Education Services Corporation. A statement of good academic standing which is established by each institution in accordance with Commissioner's Regulations may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office.
