30 Financial Aid Programs and Application Process 2011-2012 Academic Year (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2012) APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID Students at Atlanta Technical College (ATC) are encouraged to apply for the federal and state Student Financial Aid (SFA) programs that are available to assist with educational costs. The following financial aid information will provide you with an overview of the programs available, the eligibility criteria, and the application process. Additional information and/or clarification of the SFA programs are available in the Financial Aid Office. Please note that the information contained herein is based on federal, state and/or institutional policies which are subject to change. STUDENT LOANS Atlanta Technical College does not participate in the Federal Student Loan Program. The Financial Aid Office cannot certify student loan applications HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT DOCUMENTION The student’s high school transcript and/or prior college transcript must be on file in the Atlanta Tech Admissions Office prior to the student receiving financial aid funding 30

31 Federal Financial Aid Programs 31 Federal PELL Grant Program (PELL) The PELL Grant Program provides assistance to students who demonstrate financial need as defined by the U. S. Department of Education. PELL recipients must be enrolled in an eligible program of study and must not have attained a baccalaureate degree or a first professional degree. The maximum award amount for 10-11 is $5550.00. Recipients must be enrolled in an eligible program of student. The award amount each term is based on the number of enrollment hours each term. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) This program is designed to ‘supplement’ the grant assistance awarded to students with the highest PELL eligibility. Funds are limited and based on the school’s allocation received each year. Since funds at Atlanta Tech are limited, students who meet the priority deadline date for applying for federal aid have the greatest chance of receiving FSEOG. Federal Work Study (FWS) Program The FWS Program provides part-time employment. FWS students must maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or greater. FWS offers exposure to real work experiences, development of positive work ethics and time management skills. Students interested in participating in this program must complete an ATC FWS application in addition to the FAFSA.

32 State Financial Aid Programs 32 Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) Scholarship Program Recipients are eligible for a maximum of 63 semester hours The HOPE Grant is available to students enrolled in a certificate or diploma program of study. Recipients are eligible for a maximum of 63 semester hours of HOPE Grant Payment. Effective fall semester, HOPE Grant recipients must have a minimum 3.0 GPA at the 30th and 60th hour check points to remain eligible for the HOPE Grant. HOPE Scholarship applicants must also complete the ATC HOPE Scholarship Application. The HOPE Scholarship is awarded to HOPE Scholars enrolled in an associate degree (AAS) program of study. HOPE Scholars are students who graduate from a Georgia high school with this distinguished honor or students who are ‘grandfathered’ into the program after attempting a minimum of 45 associate or baccalaureate degree credit hours with a 3.0 or greater cumulative GPA at the required checkpoints. HOPE Scholarship applicants must also complete the ATC HOPE Scholarship Application.

33 33 IMPORTANT HOPE CHANGES Please note that the HOPE does not cover the Technology Fee, Late Fee or Malpractice Insurance Fee. Effective Fall Semester, the HOPE Award will only cover a portion of tuition cost. The HOPE Fees and Book Awards have been eliminated effective fall semester. For the 2011-2012 academic year, The HOPE tuition will cover $60.75 per semester hour. The tuition charges effective fall = $75.00 per semester hours. Therefore, the student will be responsible for $14.25 per semester hour unless he/she qualifies for Pell Grant or some other type of assistance.

34 Financial Aid Eligibility ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA Although there are specific criteria governing each SFA program, all SFA recipients must meet the following criteria: U. S. citizenship or eligible non-citizenship Selective Service registration, if required at High school diploma or GED Enrollment in an eligible program of study Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Not owe a refund to a federal grant program or be in default on a federal student loan 34

35 Deadline Dates Applicants are encouraged to begin the application process as soon as possible prior to the academic year/term they would like to receive financial assistance. The academic year is July 1 – June 30, and the priority deadline date is March 1st preceding the chosen academic year. Should the applicant fail to meet the priority deadline date, all aid applications and supportive documents must be submitted to the aid office by the following semester deadline dates: Fall Semester -- July 1 Spring Semester -- November 15 35

36 36 Satisfactory Academic Progress & Special Circumstances SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS SFA recipients must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward the completion of their certificate, diploma or degree. This includes maintaining a 2.0 or greater grade point average (GPA) and completing the program within 150 percent (150%) of the standard time frame required. Students must satisfactorily complete 67% of all attempted classes each semester to complete the program within the 150% time frame. Grades of D, F, W, WF, WP, U and I adversely affect the student’s completion rate. Students who fall below the Minimum requirements (GPA or completion rate) are required to pay their own tuition and fees until they regain SAP eligibility. If extenuating circumstances occur, the student may file an appeal to regain financial aid eligibility. These SAP regulations will change effective fall semester (August 23, 2011) Recommendation: Students who decide to change majors or withdraw from classes should check with their financial aid counselor to determine if and how their financial aid may be affected.

37 37 SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES Students (and or the parents of dependent students) who experience changes (loss of employment, change in dependents, etc.) in their financial circumstances, should notify their Financial Aid Office in writing. Documentation is often required, but this could result in an increase in funding. 37
