3 General Information and Policies To assure a measure of financial security throughout their course of study at the College, students may expect comparable awards for a total of eight semesters if the following conditions are met: The family financial situation remains the same. The student submits all the required documents on time. The student maintains satisfactory academic progress and meets academic requirements to maintain scholarship eligibility. Federal, state, and institutional funding levels remain constant. Our financial aid counselors are available to assist you with any aspect of the financial aid process. Who Should Apply for Aid All families are encouraged to apply for financial aid. Financial aid programs are available to students from all income levels from Pell Grants (reserved for the neediest of families) to low-interest non-needbased student loans (extended to high-income families). To insure that you are aware of all the resources available to your family, we encourage all students to submit financial aid applications. Admission Acceptance Financial aid is awarded only to students who are accepted for admission to the College and are enrolled in the BFA program (6 credits per semester minimum). Apply Each Year Students must reapply for financial aid each year. Financial aid awards based on need, federal student and parent loans, and state awards, are not automatically renewed. Full-Time Attendance Financial aid awards based on full-time attendance require a minimum of 12 credits each semester. Part-Time Attendance Financial aid is available to degree-seeking students enrolled for 6 to 11 credits per semester on a prorated basis. 1

4 International Student Aid International students are not eligible for federal or state aid, but may apply for merit-based awards from MICA. Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policies Federal regulations require students who are receiving federal financial aid to make academic progress toward their degree in order to continue to receive federal aid. These regulations are referred to as Satisfactory Academic Progress. MICA must monitor federal aid recipients academic progress to ensure that a minimum cumulative GPA is maintained and a minimum number of credits are completed each academic year. Satisfactory Academic Progress for financial aid eligibility should not be confused with the College s academic policy. These are two distinct and totally separate policies. It is entirely possible to fail to meet minimum standards of one policy and pass the minimum standard of the other. Federal Policy The federal Office of Student Financial Aid has established the following policies and procedures required of all federal aid recipients. Students receiving any of the following awards are required to meet the federal SAP policies: Federal Pell Grants, Federal SEOG Grants, Federal Work- Study, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans. Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards include three elements: 1. Maximum time frame within which your degree or certificate must be achieved; 2. Minimum cumulative grade point average; and 3. Minimum credit completion percentage. Federal regulations define the maximum allowable time frame for program completion as 150% of the credits required to complete your degree or certificate program. For example, a typical BFA degree requires 126 credits for completion. The maximum number of credits that may be attempted over the course of your enrollment at MICA is 189 (126 X 150% = 189). All transfer credits accepted toward a degree must be included in the 189 credit maximum. Students are no longer eligible for federal aid after 189 credits have been attempted. 2

5 Students must achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress standards. Students must successfully complete a minimum of 67.5% of all credits attempted each academic year. Grades of withdrawal W or incompletes I are counted in credits attempted but not completed. Student transcripts will be evaluated at the end of the academic year for SAP component requirements. Students who have not met SAP requirements will be notified in writing that they are no longer eligible to receive federal student aid. Federal aid eligibility can only be reinstated through a successful documented appeal or by resolving all deficiencies (i.e. completion of incomplete I grades, completing summer classes, etc.). SAP Appeal Students may submit an appeal to be considered for reinstatement of federal aid on a probationary status of no more than one semester to resolve deficiencies. Students who have an acceptable appeal, but for whom it would be impossible to resolve all deficiencies in one semester, will be placed on an Academic Plan. Appeals can only be considered for extenuating circumstances such as injury or illness, death of a relative, or other special circumstances. Appeals must include documentation of circumstances on which the appeal is based. Appeals must also specify why the student failed to satisfy SAP requirements and what has changed in the student s situation. Appeal letters and supporting documentation are submitted to the Financial Aid Office and will be reviewed by a committee. SAP Probation Students who have appeals approved are placed on SAP Probation for one semester. Federal aid will be available for the probationary semester. If the student successfully meets the requirements during the probationary semester, SAP probation will be lifted. If the student fails to meet the requirements of the probationary semester, the student will be ineligible for further federal financial aid until all deficiencies are corrected. 3

6 SAP Academic Plan Students may be placed on an Academic Plan upon submission of a successful appeal. If it is mathematically impossible for a student to resolve all deficiencies during one semester of probation, the student will be placed on an Academic Plan with the end goal being to resolve all deficiencies. An Academic Plan can vary in length and will be determined by Academic Advising. The student s Academic Plan will be reviewed each semester and the student must meet the terms outlined in the plan to continue receiving federal aid. Private Scholarships and Grant Awards In addition to receiving an official financial aid package, a student may be the recipient of an outside scholarship or grant. If such awards cause an over-award situation, it is MICA s policy to reduce the self-help (work or loan) component of the package before reducing any gift aid (scholarships or grants). If the student s full need has been met by needbased gift aid, it may be necessary to reduce the gift aid component. MICA-Sponsored Four-Year Merit Scholarships Recipients of MICA-sponsored four-year scholarships must be in attendance full time for eight semesters to receive full disbursement of four-year awards, and must maintain good academic standing Students who have lost scholarship renewal because of failing to achieve normal academic progress and who have special circumstances (i.e. serious health conditions, etc.) may appeal. Appeals must be made in writing to the Financial Aid Office. Refund Policies If it becomes necessary for a student to withdraw from the College, tuition refunds are based upon the time elapsed between the first day of the semester and the last date of attendance. Institutional Refund Policy: 100% tuition refund if the student withdraws during the first week of classes; 80% tuition refund if the student withdraws during the second week of classes; 40% tuition refund if the student withdraws during the third or fourth week of classes. No refund if the student withdraws after the fourth week of classes. Fees are not refundable. 4

7 Refunds of federal aid are set by federal guidelines. Refunds will be distributed among the Federal Direct Student & Parent Loan Programs, the Federal Perkins Loan Program, the Federal Pell Grant Programs, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program, and other federal aid programs. Recipients of federal financial aid loan and/or grant programs who withdraw within 60% of the start of the semester will be required to return all or a portion of Title IV funds to the federal government according to federal regulations. For example, if a student attended classes for 25% of the semester, the student would have earned 25% of his or her federal financial aid. Consequently, 75% of the student s aid would be unearned and must be returned to the government. The required calculation of the return of these funds may result in the student owing a balance to MICA and/or the federal government. The Financial Aid staff is available to meet with students and parents to review these federal regulations regarding return of federal aid funds and the consequences and to answer any questions about the process. Voter Registration We encourage all eligible students to register to vote. The National Mail Voter Registration Form is the one document that allows you to register to vote from anywhere in the United States. This form is available from the Election Assistance Commission at: If you need help, we will be happy to assist you. 5

8 Financial Aid Application Procedures Completion and submission of admission, scholarship, and need-based financial aid applications by established deadlines ensures priority consideration of your request for assistance. The financial aid staff cannot process your request for need-based financial aid until all required forms have been received and you have been accepted for admission to the College. Please remember, if you have not already filed an application for admission to the College, you must do so when you apply for financial aid. Priority Deadlines We recommend that you file the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1, To receive priority funding, all required financial aid documents must be postmarked by February 15, Financial aid is awarded on a rolling basis and applications received after the priority date will be considered until funds are exhausted. 6

9 Financial Aid Checklist To apply for need-based financial aid, the following applications and documents will be required: Fall Enrollment 1 Complete and submit your application for admission to MICA. You must be accepted to the College before any financial aid is awarded. 2 Complete and submit to the federal processor the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after January 1, 2016, but no later than February 15, Make sure you have listed the MICA Federal School Code (002080) in the college information section. The FAFSA is available online at As a result of filing the FAFSA, the federal processor will you a Student Aid Report (SAR), and send your FAFSA data to MICA s Financial Aid Office. Special Note to Maryland Residents: To be considered for Maryland need-based state aid, the FAFSA should be submitted by February 15, 2016 to be on time at MICA and Maryland State. It is our experience that delays can occur; to assure your FAFSA arrives by the state deadline date, we strongly suggest you submit your FAFSA by February 15, 2016.** 3 Complete the online MICA Financial Aid Application no later than February 15, Upon receipt, the Financial Aid Office will create your aid file. The earlier you complete and forward these documents, the sooner we can begin searching for funds to assist you. 4 All first-time entering students must submit a signed photocopy of their own 2015 Federal Income Tax Return (all schedules) along with copies of all W-2 forms to the Financial Aid Office. ** Many state aid programs may require separate applications.

10 5 All first-time entering dependent students are required to submit a signed photocopy of their parents 2015 Federal Income Tax Return and schedules along with copies of all W-2 forms to the Financial Aid Office. For proper identification, place the student s name and social security number on the parents tax form.

11 Educational Costs at MICA The following budgets reflect the educational costs of the two typical types of full-time undergraduate students at the College. Of course, costs may vary depending on lifestyle. The tuition at MICA includes all studio fees, which are charged separately by many other colleges. This policy represents a substantial savings for the majority of our students. On-campus resident room rates are based on students sharing a living space and include utility costs, phone, high-speed internet, and cable. Students living off campus receive financial aid awards that are adjusted for average off-campus living costs. New Students New Students Expenses On-Campus Resident Commute from Home Tuition $42,280 $42,280 Student Life fee Technology fee Room 9, * Board 3,000 1,850 * Supplies and books 1,450 1,450 Personal expenses Transportation Total student budget for nine months $58,850 $49,570 Please Note: The budgets above reflect the rates. An increase in the tuition and fee rates for the academic year is anticipated. * Commuter Students: This is a nine-month budget based on students paying parents $100 per month room and board and allowing $1,620 for meals away from home. 9

12 How Financial Aid Is Awarded Maryland Institute College of Art bases its need-based financial aid awards on students documented financial need. Eligibility is based on a federal formula that considers the family income as well as other factors including the number of family members, the number in college, and the financial assets of both the student and the parents. Institutional parameters are added to the federal calculation to determine eligibility for MICA aid. The MICA Financial Aid Application gives families the opportunity to explain any unusual situation or special circumstances that may affect a family s ability to contribute to the student s educational expenses. The information contained on the FAFSA, along with the information provided on the MICA Financial Aid Application, will be merged and a uniformly applied formula will determine an objective guide to what parents and students can reasonably contribute to the total cost of education. After receiving all the required financial aid materials, the College s financial aid director develops a financial aid package that may consist of grants, scholarships, loans, and/or work opportunities. The institutional contribution to the financial aid package is based on a combination of need and merit. Financial aid award notices are sent on a rolling basis beginning the first week of April. Each family will have a unique set of characteristics that will determine its family contribution as well as a particular aid package. The specific sources of aid contained in aid packages will vary from family to family. Special Note The Family Tax Benefit laws can provide very significant benefits to many MICA parents and students. More information is provided in MICA s Financing Options brochure. Contact your tax advisor or visit the IRS website for details. 10
