The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) assists students and parents in meeting their educational expenses. These educational expenses include items such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, and transportation. OSFA annually administers more than $100 million in financial aid funds from federal, state, institutional, and private sources, based on both financial need and academic performance. Financial aid counselors are available to assist students on a walk-in basis, by telephone, or by appointment.

For financial aid eligibility purposes, `financial need' is calculated by subtracting the individual student's expected family contribution from the average cost of attendance. Each student's financial need is determined by an analysis of the student and his/her family's financial statement and a standardized formula known as Federal Methodology. Federal Methodology is designed by the U.S. Department of Education and is used by all post-secondary institutions for the purpose of assessing financial need. Special circumstances of the individual applicant are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Wayne State University, in accordance with U.S. Department of Education regulations, assumes the student and his/her parents (if he/she is dependent) or spouse (if he/she is married) will contribute toward the student's educational expenses. The student bears primary responsibility for his/her educational costs. Financial aid is designed to supplement a student's contribution toward his/her educational expenses.

To be considered for need-based financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA by the Wayne State University institutional deadline of May 1 (prior to Fall classes). For additional information on applying for need-based financial aid, please see `Financial Aid Applications Procedures' below.

Service Hours and Required ID: Telephone counseling services are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. by dialing 313-577-3378. Front counter service is available at Helen Newberry Joy, 3 West, Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. During the Spring/Summer semester (mid-May through mid-August) front counter service is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. To ensure confidentiality of student financial information, picture identification is required for front counter service.

Types of Financial Aid

There are four basic types of financial aid: scholarships, grants, loans, and employment. These types of aid are offered to the student either as a single fund or a financial aid package consisting of a combination of awards. The total amount of financial aid a student can receive can never exceed the demonstrated financial need, based on analysis of the financial statement.

Scholarships

A scholarship is gift assistance awarded on the basis of academic achievement, or other special ability or attribute, which requires no repayment. In some cases financial need may be a requirement for eligibility as well.

The State of Michigan offers two scholarship opportunities to undergraduate students obtaining their first bachelor's degree.

The Michigan Competitive Scholarship is gift aid for Michigan resident undergraduate students who demonstrate academic achievement and show financial need. Academic achievement must be demonstrated via the American College Test (ACT), which typically is taken while students are enrolled in high school. Priority consideration will be given to freshmen students who completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 21 and to upperclassmen that complete the FAFSA by March 21.

The Michigan Merit Award is a merit-based program for high school seniors to reward student achievement and to make postsecondary education more affordable. Students who meet certain criteria based on academic achievement demonstrated via the MEAP (Michigan Educational Assessment Program) test will be eligible for a Michigan Merit Award of $2,500 to be used at any approved postsecondary educational institution. Students should contact the Michigan Department of Education for application and deadline information at 1-888-4-GRANTS (1-888-447-2687) or (517) 373-3394.

Information about private scholarships administered by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) is available on-line at http://www.financialaid.wayne.edu. The application deadline is February 1, 2001.

Private Scholarships awarded by academic departments other the OSFA may have different application requirements and deadline dates. While general information about many of these scholarships may be found on the OSFA Web Site http://www.financialaid.wayne.edu, a student should contact the appropriate college or department for specific application and deadline information.

Grants

A grant is gift assistance awarded on the basis of financial need, which requires no repayment. Grants are generally available to undergraduate students working toward their first bachelor's degree. Federal grants available to undergraduate students are the Pell Grant and the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG). State grants available to undergraduate students are the Michigan Educational Opportunity Grant (MEOG) and the Michigan Adult Part-Time Grant (MAPT). Wayne State University Institutional grants available to undergraduate students include the Board of Governor's Grant (BOGG). Amounts available are contingent upon the demonstrated financial need of the student and funding available at the time of awarding.

Loans

A loan is assistance, generally awarded on the basis of financial need, for the purpose of meeting educational expenses, which must be repaid at a future date, usually following graduation or when the student ceases to be enrolled on at least a half-time basis. Loans bear a five to eight-and-a-quarter percent interest rate on the unpaid balance during the repayment period. (Some loan programs also incur interest charges during periods of enrollment.) There are several types of loans available at Wayne State University, including Federal Perkins Loan, the Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan, and various Private/Alternative Loans.

THE FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN is awarded on the basis of financial need. The actual amount a student may borrow in any year is dependent upon demonstrated need, funding, and Federal annual maximum limitations. A Federal Perkins Loan is offered to students only if they are eligible and requested loan consideration on the financial aid application by answering 'yes' to the appropriate question on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

THE FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN program consists of two types of loans: subsidized and unsubsidized. A student's eligibility for a subsidized Federal Direct Loan is determined by the financial need of the student. Eligibility for a subsidized loan must first be determined before a student may be considered for an unsubsidized loan. Each program has both annual and cumulative maximum loan amounts stipulated by Federal regulation.

THE SUBSIDIZED FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN has a low and variable interest rate and is need-based. The federal government pays the interest on the loan during: (1) a student's enrollment in school on at least a half-time basis; (2) a six-month grace period immediately following the student's separation from school; and (3) a deferment, which is an authorized period of time when loan payments may be temporarily postponed.

THE UNSUBSIDIZED FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN, which also has a low and variable interest rate, is non-need-based (although the FAFSA must still be completed in order to be eligible). The federal government does not pay interest to the lender (The U.S. Department of Education) on an unsubsidized loan; the student is responsible for paying all interest. Interest is charged from the day the loan is made until the loan is paid in full. One may choose either to pay the accumulating interest while in school, during the grace period for the principal, and during a deferment of the principal; or to have the unpaid, accumulated interest added to the principal balance of the loan (capitalized).

Employment (Work-study)

Work-Study is an employment program of on- or off-campus jobs that involves a direct exchange of money (an hourly wage) for work performed. Work-Study jobs are available to undergraduate and graduate students on the basis of financial need. Work-Study aid is offered only to eligible students, who must request employment on the financial aid application by answering 'yes' to the appropriate question on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

There are two Work-Study programs available to undergraduate and graduate students: Federal Work-Study and Michigan Work-Study. Work-Study employees' hourly wage is at least the federal hourly minimum wage. Total earnings may not exceed the student's offered award amount. A student may work no more than 20 hours per week during each semester while enrolled in classes, and up to forty hours per week between terms. Michigan Work-Study is only available to students who have Michigan residency.

A Work-Study award is not an employment guarantee. If a student is interested in Work-Study, he/she should consult the Student Guide to On-Campus Employment, which explains the hiring process and the terms and conditions of employment. The Guide is available from University Placement Services, 1001 Faculty/Administration Building; and also from the Web Site: http://www.stuaffrs.wayne.edu.

Application Procedures

Financial aid program eligibility requirements, award amounts, and conditions for continuing awards after the initial year vary. Students must apply for financial aid each year.

Application:

In order to receive federal student aid, a student's financial need must be established by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students may use either the paper or the electronic FAFSA. The paper FAFSA may be obtained from OSFA, a high school counselor or the local public libraries. The electronic FAFSA is available at: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students who have questions should feel free to contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at (313) 577-3378.

Deadline To Apply:

The 2001-02 application deadline for Wayne State financial aid consideration (except for private scholarships) is May 1, 2001 for the upcoming Fall 2001 and Winter 2002 semesters. Be sure to request a copy of your completed FAFSA to be sent to Wayne State University. The Federal School Code for the main campus (required on the application) is 002329.

Student Aid Report And Expected Family Contribution:

The completed FAFSA should be sent to the federal processor. The processor will in turn send the student a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR has assigned to it an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number which reports the amount the federal government expects the student and/or family to be able to contribute toward the student's cost of education, including tuition, fees, room, board, books, transportation and personal expenses. The EFC is stated as a five-digit number (00000 to 99999) on the SAR. The SAR will also tell the student whether a student is eligible for the Federal Pell Grant. Students are responsible to review the SAR and follow any instructions given.

Verification:

Verification is the process by which a college or university confirms the data on a student's SAR. If a student's application is selected for verification, he/she must provide the OSFA with documentation that the information reported on the application is accurate. For this purpose, he/she must submit documents such as a verification worksheet (provided by OSFA), a copy of his/her federal tax return (and that of a spouse, if married), a copy of his/her parents federal tax return (if the student is dependent), or a statement of certifying non-filer status for the student, spouse (if married), and/or parent (if the student is dependent).

Applying for Direct Loans:

To request a Direct Loan, the student must answer 'yes' to question 33 on the FAFSA and ensure the FAFSA processing results (SAR) reach OSFA in accordance with the following schedule:

Loan Period -- Priority Due Date

Fall Semester 2001 Only: May 1, 2001

Fall Semester 2001 and Winter Semester 2002: May 1, 2001

Winter Semester 2002: October 1, 2001

Spring/Summer 2002: March 30, 2002

Separate application process exists for the Spring/Summer 2002 semester. A request form will be available for Spring/Summer loan request with a deadline of March 30, 2002.

To remain eligible for Federal Direct Loans, the student must be enrolled at least half-time at the time loan proceeds are disbursed.

The student's class ranking and whether he/she is dependent or independent, as follows, determine the amount a student is eligible to borrow annually in Federal Direct Loan funds:

Dependent Undergraduates:

Freshman year: $2,625 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Sophomore year: $3,500 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Junior year and above: $5,500 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Independent Undergraduates:

Freshman year: $6,625 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Sophomore year: $7,500 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Junior year and above: $10,500 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Graduate Students: $18,500 (Subsidized + Unsubsidized)

Aggregate Loan Limits:

The maximum amount of loan funds a dependent student may receive while working toward an undergraduate degree is $23,000. The maximum amount of loan funds an independent student may receive while working toward an undergraduate is $46,000. The maximum amount of loan funds a graduate student may receive while working toward a master's degree is $138,500.

Entrance Counseling:

The student who is a first-time borrower is required to complete entrance loan counseling. Federal regulations prohibit OSFA from paying loan funds to first-time borrowers until they have satisfied this requirement. A student may complete entrance loan counseling at the following Web Site: http://www.ed.gov/directloan/counsel/index.html.

Cost of Attendance:

The cost of attendance (COA), also referred to as the `student budget,' usually is the sum of costs or tuition and fees; room and board; books and supplies; transportation; and miscellaneous expenses. The OSFA determines a student's financial need by subtracting from the Wayne State University's COA the amount of the student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC). As a state institution, Wayne State has a relatively low COA. Note that the following calculated COA amounts are estimated averages, which may not reflect a particular student's actual expenses. Dependent Student COA: The estimated average total cost for the nine-month 2000-01 academic year is $10,385 for a Michigan resident who is an undergraduate, single, dependent, living with parents, and enrolled full-time (twelve credits or above):

Tuition and fees: $4,032
Books and Supplies: $ 615
Room and Board: $2,390
Transportation & Miscellaneous: $3,348
Total Cost of Attendance (budget): $10,385

The budget estimated here may be adjusted to include loan fees (if applicable), costs related to a disability; reasonable costs for eligible study-abroad programs; and an allowance for reasonable costs connected with a student's employment as part of a cooperative education program. (The amount of tuition and fees is subject to change by the University Board of Governors without notice.)

Independent Undergraduate Student COA:

The estimated total cost for the nine-month 2000-01 academic year is $14,445 for a Michigan resident who is an undergraduate, single, independent, living away from parents, and enrolled full-time (twelve credits or above):

Tuition and fees:$4032
Books and Supplies: $ 615
Room and Board: $6450
Transportation & Miscellaneous: .$3348
Total Cost of Attendance (budget): $14,445

The budget estimated here may be adjusted to include loan fees (if applicable), dependent care directly related to attendance at Wayne State University; costs related to a disability; reasonable costs for eligible study-abroad programs; and an allowance for reasonable costs connected with a student's employment as part of a cooperative education program. (The amount of tuition and fees is subject to change by the University Board of Governors without notice.)

Graduate Student COA:

The estimated total cost for the nine-month 2000-01 academic year is $13,844 for a Michigan resident who is a graduate, single, living away from parents, and enrolled full-time (eight credits or above):

Tuition and fees: $3431
Books and Supplies: $ 615
Room and Board: $6450
Transportation & Miscellaneous: $3348
Total Cost of Attendance (budget): $13,844

Financial Aid Payments:

Federal Direct Loans are paid in two disbursements, regardless of the length of the loan period. All other financial aid is paid in two disbursements if the award is for the academic year (one scheduled for the Fall semester and the second for the Winter semester), or in one payment if the award is for only one semester.

Financial Aid Eligibility Enrollment Requirements:

To receive consideration for the maximum award amounts under financial aid programs, the student must enroll full-time. At the undergraduate level, full-time enrollment is twelve credits or above. At the graduate level, full-time enrollment is eight credits or above. Undergraduate and graduate students must enroll at least half-time to receive most financial aid funds (including grants and loans). Students enrolled at least half-time but less than full time are eligible for financial aid in pro rata amounts. At the undergraduate level, half-time enrollment is a minimum of six credits. At the graduate level, half-time enrollment is a minimum of four credits.

Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress:

Federal regulations require institutions eligible to participate in federal financial aid programs to define and enforce satisfactory academic progress standards for students receiving federal assistance. The standards assure completion of degree or certificate objectives within an established time frame. The federally established time limit sets an upper limit on the period of time for which a student may receive federal financial aid. The Wayne State University standards of satisfactory academic progress govern all federal and state financial aid programs and Board of Governors scholarships and grants. Federal regulations establish the maximum time frame in which a student must complete his or her educational program as 150 percent of the published length of the program in which he or she is enrolled, a student should refer to the appropriate school/college and department section of this Bulletin, or consult with an academic adviser. To receive financial aid, otherwise eligible students must maintain satisfactory academic progress toward a degree or certificate. Students must complete two-thirds of their attempted credit hours each academic year (defined as Fall and Winter semesters) and maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. Students with unsatisfactory academic progress may appeal for financial aid reinstatement. Students should contact OSFA for appeal forms and procedures. (Note: Graduate students, law students, and medical students should consult their academic advisers about the minimum acceptable cumulative grade point average for their programs.) Copies of the Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy are available from the OSFA and the OSFA Web Site http://www.financialaid.wayne.edu

Eligible Program Exceptions:

A student must be enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program (one that leads to a degree or certificate) in order to receive consideration for financial aid funds. The two exceptions to the eligible program requirement are: 1) a student enrolled in prerequisite course work to gain admission to an eligible program, and 2) a student enrolled in the teacher certification program. A description of these exceptions are available from the OSFA and the OSFA Web Site: http://www.financialaid.wayne.edu

Programs Ineligible for Financial Aid:

Students who meet any of the following admission criteria are not eligible for financial aid:

1) Admission to the University is granted with 'Guest Student' status, or 'Permit to Register' status, or undergraduate 'temporary' admit status.

2) Enrollment is not in an eligible program (leading to a degree or certificate) and none of the eligible program exceptions listed above apply.

3) Admission to the University or enrollment is in one of the following: (a) the English Language Institute; (b) Post-Bachelor's Rank 06, Curriculum 000; (c) College of Lifelong Learning non-matriculated graduate; or (d) graduate non-degree rank 60 (pre-master's), rank 53 (post-master's), or rank 69 (post-doctoral).

Refund Policy

Return of Title IV Funds Policy for Students Who Withdraw:

The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 set forth regulations governing the treatment of Title IV funds (Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Subsidized Direct Loan, Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan, Federal PLUS and Federal Stafford Loans) when a student withdraws completely from an institution.

When a student withdraws during a period of enrollment in which they have begun attendance and have received federal Title IV financial aid, Wayne State University is required to determine the amount of earned and unearned Title IV aid. A student is only eligible to retain the percentage of Title IV aid disbursed or could have been disbursed that is equal to the percentage of the enrollment period completed by the student (calculated daily). Scheduled breaks or an official Leave of Absence of four days or more are excluded. The unearned Title IV aid must be returned to the appropriate federal aid program(s). If the student has completed more than 60% of the enrollment period, no Title IV aid needs to be returned.

The following steps will be followed when determining the amount of Title IV aid to be returned upon withdrawal:

1. Determine the percentage of enrollment period completed by the student. Divide the number of days attended by the number of days in the enrollment period. If the calculated percentage exceeds 60% then the student has earned all the Title IV aid for the enrollment period.

2. Calculate the amount of earned Title IV aid. Multiply the percentage of the enrollment period completed by the total Title IV aid disbursed (or could have been disbursed as defined by late disbursement rules). This is the amount of Title IV aid disbursed that the student will be allowed to retain.

3. Determine the amount on unearned Title IV aid to be returned to the appropriate Title IV aid program accounts. Subtract the amount of earned federal aid from the total amount of federal aid disbursed. The difference must be returned to the appropriate Title IV program(s).

4. Return of Title IV funds by the institution and the student. Wayne State University will return unearned Title IV aid up to an amount that is equal to the total allowable institutional charges for the payment period multiplied by the percentage of the Title IV aid that was unearned. The student will be responsible for the balance of unearned Title IV aid. In most cases this will be the amount of federal aid funds a student received in the form of a refund for non-institutional expenses multiplied by the percentage of Title IV aid that was unearned. If the student's portion of unearned aid to be returned is from a loan, the student is not immediately required to repay this amount. The terms and conditions of the original repayment agreement will apply. If the student's portion of unearned aid to be returned is from a grant (Federal Pell Grant or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant), the student is only required to repay 50% of the grant overpayment. Wayne State University will return the student's portion to the appropriate federal account and the student will be required to repay WSU.

5. Unearned Title IV Funds will be returned to federal programs in the following order Unsubsidized Federal Stafford and Direct Loans Subsidized Federal Stafford and Direct Loans Federal Perkins Loans Federal PLUS Loans Federal Pell Grants Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants

Return of Title IV Funds for Unofficial Withdrawals:

The official withdrawal procedure for Wayne State University requires that a student properly complete the Drop/Add Form and submit it to the Registration and Scheduling Office, send a Certified Letter to the Registration and Scheduling Office or by using the Tartar Tone Registration system. If a student begins a period of enrollment, receives federal Title IV aid, then ceases to attend classes without providing official notification to the University, the federal regulations consider this to be an unofficial withdrawal. For Title IV purposes, the withdrawal date for students who do not officially withdraw is considered to be the mid-point of the enrollment period. However, if the University determines that a student did provide official notice of the intent to withdraw due to illness, accident, grievous personal loss or other circumstances beyond the student's control, the University may use a date related to that circumstance. The refund rules discussed above are then used to determine the unearned portion of Title IV aid that must be returned to the appropriate aid program(s).

Example of a Title IV Return of Funds Calculation for a Student Who Officially Withdraws:

The following is an example of a return of Title IV funds situation at Wayne State University for a student who officially withdraws:

Institutional Charges:

Tuition and Fees: $ 1,551

Federal Aid Disbursed:

Title IV Pell Grant:$ 1,563
Title IV Subsidized Direct Loan: $ 970
Total Title IV Aid Disbursed: $ 2,533

If the student withdrew on the 65th day of a 113-day enrollment period the earned and unearned portions of Title IV aid is calculated as follows:

Percent Earned: 65/113= 57.50%
Percent Unearned: 100% - 57.50% = 42.50%
Amount of Title IV aid unearned: $2,533 x 42.50% = $1,076.53

Wayne State University is responsible for returning the lesser of unearned Title IV aid ($1076.53 from above) or unearned tuition and fees ($1551 x 42.50% = $659.18). WSU will return the unearned Title IV aid as follows:

Title IV Loans: $659.18

The student is responsible for the remaining portion of unearned Title IV aid ($1076.53 - $ 659.18 = $ 417.35) and should be distributed as follows:

Title IV Loan Unearned:

$ 970 (total disbursed) - $ 659.18 (returned by WSU) = $ 310.82

The amount of unearned Title IV loan to be returned by the student is not required to be returned immediately. The student will repay this amount based upon the original repayment terms as described in the loan promissory note.

Title IV Grant Unearned:

$ 417.35 (total student portion to be returned)
- $ 310.82 (unearned portion returned to the loan program)
= $106.53 (remaining unearned Title IV aid)

The student is only required to repay 50% of unearned Title IV grant funds. WSU will return the amount the student is responsible for ($106.53 x .50 = $53.27) and the student will then be required to repay WSU.

For further information or other examples of this return of Title IV policy, please contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at 3 West, Helen Newberry Joy Student Services Center, (313) 577-3378.

It is strongly recommended that any student receiving financial aid who is contemplating a withdrawal from the University first contact the OSFA to determine the financial impact of that decision.
