Applying for Financial Aid
To apply for all types of financial aid, students must complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov . To receive financial aid, including student loans, the following general requirements must be met.
Student must be:
A U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen.
Be formally admitted to Misericordia University. (For information on admission to the college, please reference the Adult Education Resource Guide).
Be registered for at least 6 credits per semester for student loans.
After completing the FAFSA, your information will be transmitted electronically to our Financial Aid Office. You will receive an outcome document called the Student Aid Report (SAR). You will be instructed to read through the information and make any necessary corrections.
The SAR will also serve to inform you of Federal Pell grant eligibility and notify you if you are selected for Federal Verification. If selected for verification, you will need to provide our financial aid office with photocopies of federal tax returns, W-2 forms and a verification worksheet. The Financial Aid Director will request this information prior to processing your student loans or crediting grants to your account. Federal regulations prohibit the crediting of financial aid to your account until this process has been completed.
If you are transferring into Misericordia University and have already filed a FAFSA for the current year, you may call 1-800-4-FEDAID and add Misericordia University to your record. Our title IV school code is 003247. We can access your financial aid application in about 3 to 5 days.
By completing the FAFSA, you have also applied to your state of residence for grant assistance. Please note the State Grant Deadlines on the FAFSA. Applications submitted after the deadlines may not be considered. Pennsylvania's State Grant Program is administered by AES/PHEAA ( American Education Services/Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency). The deadline for consideration of Pennsylvania State Grant Assistance is May 1 preceding the academic year in question, i.e. May 1, 2011 for the 2011-12 academic year. After completing the FAFSA, you will receive an email from PHEAA called a status notice. You will be instructed to complete certain items and return it.
If you are interested in Direct Stafford Student Loans, you need to complete entrance loan counseling and electronically sign a Master Promissory Note at www.studentloans.gov
Once you have submitted all necessary information, your loan can be processed. You will be notified by mail when the college has certified your loan. The disclosure statement will include the amount certified and the disbursement dates. Student loan money can be used to cover tuition, fees, housing costs, books and supplies, in general any legitimate educational expense. If the amount of loan money received by the college is more than your tuition and fees the credit balance will be refunded to you. You may use student loan money to purchase a computer. However, Federal Regulations prohibit the use of student loan money to purchase a car or luxury items.
The FAFSA is renewable annually. You will need to file after January 1 of each year. Since the information reported on the FAFSA is always based on prior year income, you should notify the Financial Aid Office in writing of any special conditions such as recent separation/divorce, income reduction, medical/dental expenses not covered by insurance. Upon review, you will be notified in writing of any adjustments to your financial aid.
Please be aware that your financial aid may need to be adjusted after your initial award is determined based on certain changes. Changes in your course registration (i.e.: dropping./adding classes), withdrawing from class, housing status and changes resulting from federal verification most commonly result in grant increases/reductions and shifts from subsidized to unsubsidized Direct Stafford loans. It is recommended you contact the financial aid office directly before you alter your course registration.
