FAFSA要求我提供父母的信息,但我只能靠自己. 我该怎么办??

 如果你超过24岁, 结婚了, 武装部队的退伍军人, 孤儿:法庭的孤儿或监护人, 或者如果你自己有需要抚养的家属, 你不需要报告你父母的信息. 如果你平时需要报告父母的信息, 但由于一种不寻常的情况,我们无法这样做, 你应该访问财政援助办公室,讨论你的情况,并询问你的选择. You may be asked to document your situation in writing and fill out the Request for Independent Status Form available from our Forms page.

FAFSA是根据上一年的收入计算的,但从那以后我就失业了. 现在我没有收入了. 我有什么可以考虑的选择吗?

如果你或你的父母经历了收入的大幅减少, 或者今年支付了异常高额的医疗费用, 访问财政援助办公室,讨论你的情况,并询问你的选择. You may be asked to provide detailed documentation of your situation in writing and fill out the request for Consideration of Special Circumstance Form available from our Forms page.

The committee will also look favorably on any proof you can provide that you now have your problems under control so they won’t happen again. 请注意,只接受书面申诉.

Withdrawals & 第四章(联邦)Refunds

Students who wish to withdraw from Atlantic Cape must do so in accordance with Atlantic Cape’s Academic Catalog and Student Handbook. 退课可能会影响助学金和/或身份.

如果学生选择完全退学,学生的奖励可能会有所调整, 官方或非官方, 从一个术语. 学生的经济援助奖励将按比例反映学生就读的时间.  如果学生没有获得最初授予的所有经济援助,他们可能会产生账单.  奖励也会因资金水平而改变,但这种情况很少见.

联邦财政援助计划要求你通过参加课程来“赚取”你的资助. 如果你获得了联邦财政援助,并且退出了所有的课程, your aid “earned” will be prorated based on your last date of academic activity or official withdraw date. 规则有点复杂, so we encourage you to visit the Office of 金融援助 if you receive federal aid and need to withdraw.

如果你正式退出或停止参加所有课程, you may be required to repay all or part of the financial aid disbursed to you for the term in which you withdraw.

当学生在其注册的任何课程中未能获得及格分数时, 该学生的成绩不能证明该学生没有正式退学. Students who fail to earn a passing grade in one or all classes may be subject to a return of aid calculation.

接受联邦资助的学生可能被要求偿还被确定为“不劳而获”的资助.” The earned/unearned calculation is based on the percentage of days attended during the term in which you withdrew. 你挣的钱是按比例计算的. 例如, 如果你完成了你退出的学期的30%, 你已经获得了30%的联邦资助. 一旦你完成了60%的学期,你就被认为已经获得了所有的资助.

The difference between your earned federal aid and 100% equals the percentage of unearned federal funds that are subject to repayment.

联邦法规要求按照以下顺序退还第四章资助:

  • 联邦直接无补贴贷款(PLUS贷款除外)
  • 联邦直接补贴贷款
  • 联邦直接PLUS贷款(适用于家长)
  • 联邦佩尔助学金
  • 联邦补充教育机会补助金
  • 联邦教育补助金
  • 联邦伊拉克和阿富汗服务补助金

 Atlantic Cape is required to return to the applicable federal program account the unearned percentage of institutional charges. ag体育可能会向您收取代表您退回的任何资金,包括贷款资金.

ag体育大学的学费Refunds政策与联邦政府要求返还不劳而获的助学金是分开的. Whether or not you receive a tuition/fee refund has no bearing on the amount you must repay under this formula.

If, 作为撤退的结果, 取消, 或终止出席, 你有资格获得学费/费用的Refunds,并且你在相同的付款期内获得了资助, 您的部分Refunds将退回到适当的联邦第四章或机构账户. Any amount remaining after federal program accounts from which you received aid have been reimbursed will be returned to you.

我可以在学院书店把书算进助学金吗?

 是的. 如果你的经济援助计划将支付书本费, 你可以在公布的书店收费时间内对你的书进行收费. 我们鼓励您在购买书籍之前确保您的最终课程时间表.

我什么时候能收到Refunds支票?

Checks for grant awards and electronically transferred loans that exceed any charges on your account will be processed at the end of the add-drop period each term, 除非你选的是一门半学期后才开始的课.

迟交奖金的支票会尽快处理, 通常在项目最终批准后的两周内.

如果我不能去上课或需要退学怎么办?

 不干脆不去上课而不提交正式的退课报告吗!  你可能会被要求偿还你的全部经济援助! 如果你接受了联邦政府的资助,然后退出了所有的课程, 你可能需要偿还一部分经济援助.  We urge you to complete your classes if at all possible to avoid complications with your future financial aid. 如果你不能去上课, you should notify your professor as soon as possible and see an academic counselor about submitting a withdrawal form.
