Hofstra makes financial aid available to many students in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and jobs. Like other universities which subscribe to the policies of the Federal Student Aid Programs, we believe that eligibility for scholarship aid should depend on the student’s achievement and promise, but that the amount of such aid should depend on the relative financial need of the student and his or her family.

Prospective new full-time freshmen and full-time undergraduate students in good standing are eligible for awards ranging in value up to full tuition. These one-year renewable awards are granted on the basis of academic quality, personal merit, need and, in some cases, proficiency in a specialized area. Students have the responsibility to plan ahead, anticipate all costs, budget all resources, and request aid for the entire academic period. Anticipated costs include not only tuition and fees but a reasonable cost estimate for books and supplies, transportation, room and board where applicable, and personal expenses. Budgeted resources should include assistance from parents, student savings, summer earnings, term-time earnings, Federal and State aid, and scholarships from community civic organizations.

The Financial Aid Office will determine the amount and combinations of aid for which the student is eligible after applying all “outside” awards. The University reserves the right to modify the amount of the award at any time on the basis of outside awards.

Students who are pursuing second undergraduate degrees may be eligible for Federal financial aid, however may not be eligible for institutional funds.

Grants and Loans

Federal Programs

^ TOP

Eligibility for these programs is determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

FEDERAL PELL GRANTS ranging from $400 to $4,050 a year are awarded to undergraduate students demonstrating need. The amount of the grant is based on a federal need analysis.

FEDERAL SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY GRANTS are intended for students with great financial need who are Pell Grant recipients. They are awarded through the Office of Financial Aid from funds provided by the Federal Government and are subject to change based on availability.

FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN PROGRAM: a student studying full time may borrow a maximum of $4,000 per year or no more than $20,000 for four years. No repayments are made while the student is still in school. Repayment begins six or nine (if borrower received first Federal Perkins Loan after July 1, 1987) months after graduation or termination of school attendance. During the repayment period, the student is charged five percent interest on the unpaid balance of the loan principal.

Payments may be deferred or cancelled under circumstances described in the Promissory Note. Borrowers may take as long as 10 years to repay. Funds for these loans are provided to the University by the Federal Government. The number of loans available is limited by the amount of money allocated by the government and students’ willingness to meet their repayment obligations.

FEDERAL WORK STUDY: various jobs are available for students who demonstrate financial need. Funds for these jobs are allocated to the University by the Federal Government.

Jobs are available during the regular academic year and for the summer. Entering students can apply for on-campus jobs for the summer prior to their initial year at Hofstra.

Federal Work Study positions can provide valuable experience relative to a chosen career or assistance in determining a career. For example: accounting majors can work for county comptroller or finance departments; premedical students, for hospitals; prelaw students, for consumer affairs or legally related nonprofit agencies; education students, for schools or daycare centers and communications majors can work in educational TV and municipal cultural affairs agencies.

If Federal Work Study is listed as a form of financial aid on your award notification, you may report to the Office of Student Employment, Human Resources Center.

Federal Progress Standards

Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress for renewal of funds under the Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loan Program, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Pell Grant or Federal Stafford Loan.

Students not meeting these guidelines will not be renewed for additional assistance. The appeal process is handled by the Academic Records Committee.

Grades of W, NCr and permanent INC are not acceptable in meeting the pursuit requirement.

Federal Family Education Loan Program

FEDERAL STAFFORD LOAN: Students with eligibility may borrow from the Stafford Program to help meet their educational expenses. Two types exist: subsidized and unsubsidized. Need as determined by the federal needs analysis is required to borrow a subsidized loan, and to determine eligibility it is required that students file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Students must meet all other federal aid eligibility criteria to borrow.

Subsidized eligibility is always considered first because the interest is fully subsidized during periods of at least half-time attendance (6 credits for undergraduates). Repayment would begin six months after ceasing at least half-time attendance. Students must accept the awards offered on their award notification for processing to begin. A promissory note is required and may be completed on line at www.HESC.com with a federal PIN. A Federal PIN can be obtained at www.PIN.ed.gov. The interest rate is variable, but it will not exceed 8.25%. Undergraduate students may borrow up to an aggregate limit of $23,000.

The following are the annual limits that may be borrowed:

Freshman 0-23 credits earned $2,625
Sophomore 24-57 credits earned $3,500
Junior and Senior 58+ credits earned $5,500

Unsubsidized eligibility is generally limited to remaining amounts of the above limits not covered by calculated need. Students borrowing unsubsidized funds must make interest payments while enrolled, or interest may be capitalized until repayment begins. Repayment begins 6 months after the student ceases at least half-time attendance. Undergraduate students meeting the federal definition of an independent student may borrow additional unsubsidized loan up to the following annually:

Freshman 0-23 credits earned $4,000
Sophomore 24-57 credits earned $4,000
Junior and Senior 58+ credits earned $5,000
*dependent undergraduates may also borrow this supplement if a parent is unable to obtain a PLUS loan.

FEDERAL PLUS LOANS: PLUS loans are available to parents of dependent undergraduate students to assist with educational expenses. These loans do carry a credit criteria and the lender has the final discretion on approval. Students must be enrolled at least half-time and meet all other federal eligibility criteria. The interest rate on PLUS is variable, but it will not exceed 9%. The annual limit is the student’s cost of attendance less any other type of financial aid and no aggregate limit exists.

Accepting PLUS offered on the award notification will allow processing of loans to begin. Repayment begins 60 days from the initial disbursement.

FEDERAL UNSUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOANS are also available for graduate students and self-supporting undergraduate students, although under certain circumstances, a college financial aid administrator can approve a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan for a dependent undergraduate.

An insurance premium and an origination fee is due when the loan check is issued. The loan amount is disbursed in two annual payments, copayable to the student and the institution. The maximum loan is $4,000 per year for first and second year, and $5,000 per year for remaining years of undergraduate study. Graduate students may borrow up to $10,000 per year up to a total of $23,000.

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans carry a variable interest rate not exceeding 8.25 percent. While the borrower is enrolled at least half-time, principal payments on the loan may be deferred. However, interest payments must be made during enrollment or capitalized (added to principal). Repayment of both principal and interest begins when the borrower leaves school or enrolls for less than full-time study.

Application procedure is similar to the subsidized Stafford. See Title IV Refund Policy.

Loans Awarded by Hofstra

EMERGENCY SHORT TERM LOANS: not to exceed $100 are available to full-time students in good academic standing who can justify the emergency nature of their request. Students should contact the Office of Student Accounts. Such a loan may not be used to pay for tuition and fees or books. A student with an outstanding obligation to the University usually will not receive this loan. Each interest-free loan is repayable within one month.

This program is partially funded by gifts in memory of Harold Goldberg ‘76.
