Students have the responsibility to plan ahead, anticipate costs, budget resources, and request aid for the entire academic period. Anticipated costs include not only tuition and fees, but also a reasonable estimate for books and supplies, transportation, room and board when applicable, and personal expenses.
 
Hofstra awards financial assistance to graduate students in the form of fellowships, scholarships, grants, loans and employment opportunities. Fellowships and scholarships are applied to tuition and awarded to qualified full- and part-time graduate students based on academic excellence and/or demonstrated need.

In addition, financial assistance is also available through state and federal agencies. Such support may depend on the financial need of the student. All scholarships, assistantships and grants, on a graduate level, are administered by the student’s respective academic department. Graduate students should contact their departments for additional information. Hofstra University awards scholarships and other financial assistance on a nondiscriminatory basis.

Application and Reapplication Procedures

^ TOP

Requests for financial assistance will not influence a candidate’s consideration for admission in any way. Financial aid decisions will be made after the student has been accepted. New students will receive a financial aid award package by mail; continuing students will receive a postcard and e-mail to their Hofstra Pride account and can immediately access their awards online to accept or decline via the Hofstra portal.

Graduate and professional students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at FAFSA.gov to be considered for federal aid. The toll-free telephone number for the FAFSA processor is 1-800-4-FEDAID. Hofstra’s federal school code is 002732. Students may be required to submit copies of income tax returns and other information in support of their federal student aid applications. The Hofstra University Office of Student Financial Services will notify students if any additional information is needed. We encourage continuing students to file the FAFSA every year by February 15 to be considered for federal aid. For more information regarding the FAFSA or federal student aid programs, call 1-800-4-FEDAID or visit FAFSA.gov or studentaid.ed.gov

Federal Grant

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to undergraduate and graduate students who intend to teach in a high-needs field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. A service (work) obligation is required or the grant converts into an Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. Students apply for this grant by filing the FAFSA.

State Grant

^ TOP

The New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) offers grants to residents who attend colleges or universities located in the state of New York and are enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits per semester. Application is made by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually and a TAP Express Application online at HESC.org. Hofstra’s TAP code is 5265 (graduate) and 5268 (law).

Student must maintain satisfactory academic progress and program pursuit in order to renew a TAP award. These requirements are detailed on the Web site listed above. Hofstra uses the following chart to determine satisfactory academic progress.

GRADUATE

Before being
certified for this payment
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th
A student must have accrued at least this many credits 0 6 12 21 30 45 60 75
With at least this grade point average 0 2.0 2.5 2.75 3.0 3.0 3.0 3.0

Program pursuit requires the student receive a passing or failing grade in a certain percentage of the full-time minimum course load of 12 credits. During the first year of study, a student must secure a passing or failing grade in a minimum of 6 credits per semester (50 percent of the minimum full-time course load); during the second year, 9 credits per semester (75 percent of the full-time course load); and during the third and fourth years, 12 credits per semester (100 percent of the minimum full-time course load). Grades of W, UW and permanent INC are not acceptable in meeting the pursuit requirement.
     
If the graduate TAP recipient received TAP as an undergraduate, the number of undergraduate TAP payments received determines what level of program pursuit the first time graduate student must meet. For example, if the graduate recipient already received four or more undergraduate TAP payments, he/she would be at 100% program pursuit level through each semester of graduate study. Students must meet both the program pursuit requirements and the satisfactory academic progress requirements in each term of TAP payment in order to continue TAP eligibility.
     
A one-time waiver is available for students who fail these standards due to unforeseen circumstances. Further information about the waiver is available from the Center for University Advisement.

Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress

The academic standing of all graduate students will be reviewed each year. In addition to the program requirements to be considered in good standing, satisfactory academic progress for federal financial aid eligibility requires that graduate students must successfully complete at least 75 percent of the credits attempted each year.

Student Loans

Loans are available to assist students in meeting the cost of education. Students beginning classes in fall 2010 should apply for loans by June 1, and students beginning classes in spring 2011 should apply by December 1, to allow adequate processing time for bill payment and avoid late fees. If you are attending both fall and spring semesters and you are applying for loans, please apply for the amount you need for the full academic year, not just one semester.

Please note that Hofstra University is required to submit loan information to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and that information is accessible by guaranty agencies, lenders and institutions determined to be authorized users of the data system.

Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP)

^ TOP

In the FFEL Program, the federal government guarantees low-cost Stafford and Graduate PLUS loans to qualified students. The loans are originated by participating lending institutions. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually to have their FFELP eligibility determined. Loan counseling is required and must be completed for Stafford Loans at hofstra.edu/FAEntrance, and Graduate PLUS at hofstra.edu/GradPLUSentrance.

There are two kinds of Stafford Loans: subsidized and unsubsidized. These loans are not mutually exclusive; therefore, many students qualify for both types.

Federal Stafford Loan^ TOP
Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans are available for graduate students; eligibility is determined by the FAFSA. Graduate students may borrow up to $8,500 per year. Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans have a fixed interest rate of 6.8%. Students must be enrolled at least half- time (4.5 credits per term at Hofstra). While the student is enrolled at least half-time, payments on the loan are deferred. Repayment of both principal and interest begin six months after the student graduates, leaves school or becomes enrolled less than half-time.

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans are also available for graduate students. Graduate students may borrow up to $12,000 per year. Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans carry a fixed rate of 6.8%. Interest begins accruing on this loan during the in-school period. If a student chooses not to pay the interest while in school, the interest is capitalized and added to the outstanding principal on an annual basis. Repayment of principal and accrued interest begins six months after the student graduates, leaves school, or becomes enrolled less than half-time (4.5 credits per term at Hofstra).

*Eligible students, who have not previously received a Stafford Loan guaranteed by HESC, must complete an electronic master promissory note (e-MPN). Please visit www.HESC.com and click on “Students, Families and Counselors”. Click on either “New York Residents” or “Outside of New York” if you are not a New York State resident. Then click on “complete the e-MPN” box located on the bottom left of the webpage. The instructions will direct the student to register for a HESC PIN if the student does not already have a PIN. The PIN is a 4 digit number created by the student; therefore, the same PIN assigned for completing the FAFSA can be used. Please follow the directions carefully while completing the e-MPN. Students will be asked to choose a lender. Please choose any lender from the drop down menu or any other lender that is approved to participate in the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP). For help choosing a lender and evaluating loan benefits, please go to www.finaid.org or hofstra.edu/learnaboutloans. If a student would prefer completing a paper Master Promissory Note (MPN), please call 1-888-NYS-HESC to obtain a paper MPN. Paper MPN forms must be returned to: NYSHESC, 99 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12255. The student may use any lender/guarantor that participates in the FFEL Program. Requests for certification of loans from other guarantors/lenders must be submitted directly to the Office of Student Financial Services.

Federal Graduate PLUS Loans^ TOP
Graduate PLUS Loans are available to graduate students to assist with educational expenses. These loans do require a credit check and the lender has the final discretion on approval. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (4.5 credits) per term and meet all the other federal eligibility criteria. The interest rate of the Graduate PLUS loan is fixed at 8.5%. The annual limit is the student’s cost of attendance minus any other type of financial aid and no aggregate limit exists. Accepting Graduate PLUS loans on the award notification will allow processing of loans to begin. First-time borrowers must complete an Electronic Master Promissory Note at www.HESC.com (please see instructions for completion of the e-MPN described above this section). Repayment begins 60 days from the final disbursement for the loan period unless it is deferred. A FAFSA must be filed and Federal Stafford annual limits must be exhausted to enable the student to apply for the Graduate PLUS loan. Graduate PLUS borrowers must also complete loan counseling at www.hofstra.edu/GradPLUSentrance.

Alternative Loans
Alternative student loans are private loans offered by lenders to help meet educational needs. These loans usually have variable interest rates which unlike the FFELP loans, are not set by the federal government. Most lenders require students with limited credit history to have a cosigner. Some alternative loans can be borrowed retroactively to cover outstanding bills. For help choosing a lender and evaluating loan benefits, visit hofstra.edu/learnaboutloans; for a list of alternative student loan lenders, visit finaid.org/loans/privateloan.phtml.

Verification

^ TOP

The federal processor uses a system of edits or flags, which produces a selection of certain applications for verification. If a student’s application is selected for verification, this may mean that a data element in his or her application does not fit generally recognized pat­terns (not necessarily that the element is incorrect; it merely must be verified), or that the student was simply selected at random. The University’s Office of Student Financial Services may also select files for verification if there appears to be a conflict of information. If a student is selected for verification, the student is notified on the Student Aid Report (SAR).

If a student is selected for verification, the following required documentation must be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Services:

  • 2010-2011 Independent Verification Worksheet.
  • Signed copy of student’s (and spouse’s, if applicable) 2009 federal income tax return and all schedules. (W-2 forms alone cannot be used for verification.)
  • If you do not have a copy of your tax return, please call the IRS at (800) 829-1040 and ask for a tax transcript for the 2009 calendar year. This form is acceptable in lieu of an actual copy of your tax return but must be signed by the tax filer prior to submission.
  • Other documents as needed.

Federal financial aid cannot be disbursed and Stafford Loans may not be certified until verification is complete. Estimated financial aid awards will be rescinded if verification has not been completed within specified deadlines. In this case, any deferred tuition and fees become due immediately. Please keep in mind that you will be notified of any adjustments that are necessary and corrections will be made for information that is not accurate, which may affect your ability to receive aid. If corrections are made to your FAFSA as a result of the verification process, you will be sent an updated SAR from the federal processor. Notification of revised awards will be mailed to new students; continuing students will receive an e-mail via their Hofstra Pride account and can immediately access their awards online through the Hofstra portal.

Verification must be completed no later than 90 days past the last day of your enrollment for each academic year. Corrections involving the federal processor must be made prior to mid-August.

In order to receive Stafford or Graduate PLUS loans, verification must be completed prior to the last date of the term in which the student wishes to borrow funds.
