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.

Hofstra makes financial support available to many students in the form of fellowships, scholarships, grants, loans and employment. Eligibility for scholarships depends on the student’s achievement and potential.

Fellowships and scholarships towards tuition are awarded to qualified full-time and part-time graduate students based on academic excellence and/or demonstrated need. These fellowships and scholarships are applied toward tuition only and do not apply to such costs as University fees, living expenses, tutorials, credit by exam or specific off-campus programs.

In addition, financial support 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 handled within a student’s respective department. The graduate student should contact his/her particular department for information.


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, and the student will be informed by mail.

Graduate and professional students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applications are available at the Office of Financial Aid or you can apply online at: www.FAFSA.ed.gov. Hofstra’s federal code is 002732. The federal government may require a copy of the student’s federal tax return be submitted to the Financial Aid Office before federal loans can be approved. Students who are residents of New York State can also apply for the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) by completing the FAFSA. New York Higher Education will mail a TAP Express Application for the student to review and return to them in Albany, NY.

The individual graduate departments determine scholarship and grant renewals. In order to secure a Stafford Loan, the FAFSA must be filed every year. Renewal applications for the FAFSA are mailed by the U.S. Department of Education to continuing students who did not file their FAFSA electronically for the previous year prior to September 1. All other students can secure the FAFSA or do the online application as noted previously. The University reserves the right to deny FAFSAs not completed in accordance with federal deadline.

Federal Work Study (FWS)

^ TOP

Various jobs are available for students who demonstrate financial need. The Federal Government allocates funds for these jobs to the University. Jobs are available during the regular academic year and for the summer. If the student is interested in FWS, they should contact the Office of Financial Aid after they have filed the FAFSA.

Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP)

^ TOP

The FFELP is where the federal government offers low-cost loans to qualified students. The loans are funded by lending institutions and guaranteed by the federal government. To apply for federal loans, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Federal Stafford Loan

^ TOP

There are two kinds of Stafford Loans-subsidized and unsubsidized. If you have need as determined by Federal Needs Analysis, you may receive the subsidized loan where the government pays the interest while you are in school. If not, you are eligible for the unsubsidized loan where you can choose to pay the interest while you are in school or to defer the payment until you complete your studies.

Students who have not previously received a Stafford loan, through our guarantor, HESC, will receive a master promissory note, if they are eligible and accept this loan. Graduate students may borrow a maximum of $8,500 per class year, up to a total of $65,500 including any loans for undergraduate study. Federal Stafford Loans carry a variable interest rate not exceeding 8.25 percent.

Although the loan may be repaid at any time, monthly payments must be made to the bank or other lender beginning six months after graduation or termination of study. Before applying for a loan, all students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Office of Financial Aid has a preferred lender list available listing banks that can best serve our students.

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans

^ TOP

The Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans are also available for graduate students. An insurance premium and an origination fee is due when the loan funds are distributed to the University. The loan amount is disbursed in two annual payments, co-payable to the student and the institution. Graduate students may borrow up to $10,000 per year up to a total of $73,000. 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 part-time or full-time study, depending on the lender.
