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. Such aid may also 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 coordinates all sources of financial aid for which a student is eligible. Awards may require adjustment at any time if additional awards are received.

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

Hofstra University awards scholarships and other financial assistance on a racially nondiscriminatory basis.

Application and Reapplication Procedures

^ TOP

Freshmen

Applicants for financial aid must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA determines eligibility for the federal financial aid programs: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work Study (FWS), Federal Stafford Loans and Federal PLUS Loans. The results of the federal need calculation may also be used to determine eligibility for other awards. Please note that February 15 is the priority application deadline for freshman awards.

Applications for continuing students must be received in the Office of Financial Aid by March 15 for the fall semester and by December 15 for the spring semester. The FAFSA is available online at www.FAFSA.ed.gov.

New York state residents should apply for the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) by completing the FAFSA. After completing the FAFSA, students will be directed to complete a TAP express application online at www.HESC.org.

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 offered admission to the university, and the student will be informed by mail.

Transfer Students

All transfer students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Academic achievement and financial need will be considered. Completed applications must be in the Office of Financial Aid by May 1 for the fall semester and December 15 for the spring semester. The FAFSA is available online at www.FAFSA.ed.gov.

Continuing Students

Recipients of financial aid must reapply each year. To receive consideration for renewal of institutional financial aid, full-time students must successfully complete at least 24 semester hours in residence each academic year with a minimum of 18 hours in which a letter grade is assigned until senior standing (88 hours) has been attained.

The grade point average necessary for renewal of a scholarship is listed in the description of that scholarship. The University reserves the right to change renewal criteria. Eligible entering freshmen may renew their scholarships for a maximum of six semesters; eligible sophomore transfers may renew for a maximum of four semesters; junior transfers for a maximum of two semesters.

  1. To be eligible for renewal of financial aid the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed by the parents and students. Upon request, a signed copy of the parents and/or student’s Federal Income Tax return and a signed verification worksheet may be required.
  2. The FAFSA is available at www.FAFSA.ed.gov beginning January 1. The deadline for filing FAFSA is March 15.
  3. 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 State Higher Education Service Corporation (NYSHESC) will mail a TAP Express Application for the student to review and return to Albany, New York.

Grants and Loans

Federal Programs

^ TOP

Grants

FEDERAL PELL GRANTS currently 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 (FSEOG) 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.

Academic Competitiveness and National SMART Grants

In addition to the Pell Grant amount, up to $750 will be awarded to eligible first-year AC Grant students, and up to $1,300 to second-year AC Grant students. Up to $4,000 will be awarded to eligible National SMART Grant students for each year in addition to the Pell Grant funds.

For AC Grants and SMART Grants, students must:

  • apply for financial aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have been determined to be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant. Students who have not yet submitted a FAFSA may do so online at www.fafsa.ed.gov;
  • be a U.S. citizen;
  • be enrolled in a two- or four-year degree program; and
  • be enrolled full time.

Additionally, for AC Grants:

  • Students must be in their first or second academic year of a two- or four-year degree program;
  • First-year students must have completed high school on or after January 1, 2006;
  • Second-year students must have completed high school on or after January 1, 2005;
  • All AC Grant students must have completed a rigorous high school program of study as designated by their state; and
  • For a second-year AC Grant, students must have a grade point average (GPA) from their first year of at least 3.0.

Additionally for National SMART Grants, students must:

  • Must be in their third or fourth academic year of a four-year degree program;
  • Must be pursuing a major in mathematics, science (including physical, life, and computer sciences), technology, engineering, or a critical foreign language, such as Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Russian; and
  • Must have a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0.

Students and others can go to www.federalstudentaid.ed.gov or call 1-800-4FEDAID to learn more about these new student aid grant programs.

Loans

FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN PROGRAM: Full-time undergraduate students may borrow a maximum of $4,000 per year or no more than $20,000 for four years. Funding limitations are determined on an annual basis. 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 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, 4.5 credits for graduates). 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. A list of our preferred lenders will appear in the drop down box but you are free to choose any eligible lender that participates in the FFEL program. The interest rate is fixed at 6.8%. 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) $3,500
Sophomore (24-57 credits earned) $4,500
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.

Application procedure is similar to the subsidized Stafford. Also see “Title IV Refund Policy.”

FEDERAL PARENT 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 fixed at 8.5%. 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 final disbursement for the loan period.

Work

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 day care 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.

Outside Scholarship Policy

Scholarships from outside sources such as foundations, community organizations, and corporations are valuable resources to help fund your education. Our policy serves as a reward for your hard work and scholarship and will help you and your family to meet college costs more easily.

Students must notify the Office of Student Accounts of any outside awards from sources other than federal or state governments. All outside scholarships supplement the Hofstra University scholarship or grant you may be awarded as long as all sources do not exceed our total costs of education (as listed in our breakdown of college costs). Your total gift aid from all sources may not exceed our total billed costs. If this amount is reached with the inclusion of scholarships from outside organizations, we will begin to reduce federally regulated portions of your aid award (Federal Perkins Loans, Stafford Loans, SEOG/Pell Grant, and Federal Work Study) dollar for dollar. Athletic grants-in-aid and tuition subsidies based on parents’ employment (tuition grant, tuition remission, tuition exchange) are considered to be exceptions to our outside scholarship policy, as we will reduce Hofstra Scholarship dollar for dollar if you receive any of these if we did not list them on your original award letter. Non-need based loans (Unsubsidized Stafford, PLUS, Alternative) will not cause a reduction in Hofstra Scholarship.

If the scholarship or stipend is reported on an IRS 1099 or W-2, it will be considered taxable income and not a resource against other assistance. If a “scholarship” has a repayment or employment obligation it will be considered a replacement of expected family contribution.

Funds from outside scholarships or other awards should be sent by the donor to Hofstra University. The funds are credited to the student’s University account and disbursed in the same way as Hofstra scholarships or grants. Unless otherwise specified, outside scholarships will be posted to the student’s account to reduce any outstanding tuition, room or board charges.

Outside award checks should be sent to: Office of Student Accounts, 205 Memorial Hall, 126 Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York 11549-1260. The check should include the student’s full name, Social Security number, and any special instructions for disbursement on a letter or form accompanying the check. Make the check payable to Hofstra University, if possible. Indicate the donor’s name on the check.

Although checks are accepted year-round, outside awards should be sent before August 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester to appear as a “credit” on the student’s fee invoice.

Once a scholarship check is received and applied to the student’s account for the fall and spring semester, no changes will be made. Upon a student’s written request, the University will verify, a student’s enrollment and provide other data with an understanding that it is fulfilling a service to its students. The provision of that service does not indicate that the University is a recipient of the grant or scholarship received by the student or that it is in any way administering any portion of the external program, or that it is responsible for decisions made by outside donors.

AGIA Policy 2007

As a Division I member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Hofstra University awards athletic grants in aid to student athletes each year.

For the fully funded (head count) sports (men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and football), student athletes who receive both an athletic grant in aid and a Hofstra University funded merit/academic scholarship will have the Hofstra University Merit Award replaced completely by athletic grant in aid; be eligible, should the student lose his/her position on the athletic team, to request reinstatement of the academic scholarship (Hofstra University Merit Award). Re-awarding of this scholarship will be dependent upon the student’s demonstrated academic success.

Those students who participate in sports for which the University awards equivalency athletic grants in aid, and who receive both the athletic grant in aid and a Hofstra University-funded merit/academic scholarship, will maintain the full amount of the Hofstra University Merit Award; have the merit award supplemented by athletic grant in aid funds to ensure that the total amount of grant aid equals the amount specified in the student’s athletic grant in aid contract. Should the student not maintain the satisfactory academic progress demanded by the University for the maintenance of the merit/academic award, the student’s merit scholarship award will be replaced by athletic grant in aid up to the amount specified in the student athletic grant in aid contract.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Satisfactory academic progress is defined as proceeding toward successful completion of degree requirements. The Office of Financial Aid at Hofstra is required by federal regulation to determine if students are meeting the requirement. The official academic record of the university is reviewed to determine student compliance with this policy.

Student Aid Programs Under This Policy

Federal Pell Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant, Smart Grants, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Work Study (FWS), Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Stafford Loan, Federal Parent Loan (PLUS) and Federal Grad Parent PLUS loans.

Components of Satisfactory Academic Progress

  1. Students are provided a maximum number of hours to complete their degrees;
  2. Students are required to maintain a cumulative, retention grade point average;
  3. Students must successfully complete at least 75% of the total, cumulative hours attempted.

Maximum Time Frame

At Hofstra the average number of hours required to complete a first bachelors degree is 124. Students are given 150% of the average time required to complete a degree in credit hours. Therefore students must complete their first bachelor’s degree within 186 hours.

Cumulative Grade Point Average

All undergraduates who have attempted less than 58 hours must maintain a 1.7 cumulative grade point average. Undergraduates who have attempted 58 hours or more must maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average.

Hours Successfully Completed

All students must complete 75% of the cumulative hours they attempt. This includes all hours attempted at any college or university that have transferred to Hofstra. For example, a student who has attempted 58 hours must have successfully completed 44 hours (58 x .75 = 43.5 rounded to 44).

Annual Review

Academic records are reviewed at the conclusion of the spring semester once grades are posted. Students who satisfy the conditions of the progress policy remain eligible to receive federal student assistance. Students who are receiving state grants, athletic awards, and/or other forms of scholarships must meet the retention requirements specific to those awards.

Failure to Maintain Academic Progress

Students who exceed the maximum number of hours allowed for degree completion become immediately ineligible for federal student assistance. However students have the opportunity to appeal and provide documentation to the financial aid office that explains why the student has exceeded the maximum hour threshold.

Probationary Status

Students who fail to meet either the cumulative grade point average requirement or the percentage of cumulative hours attempted criteria will be placed on probation for the following academic year. During the probationary period students must complete the necessary number of hours and/or increase their cumulative grade point averages in keeping with the satisfactory academic progress policy. Students who fail to do so will become ineligible for federal student assistance.

Appeal Opportunity

Students who are notified of their ineligibility may submit a written appeal and any supporting documentation to the Office of Financial Aid. An appeal form is included with the letter of ineligibility. The appeal and supporting documentation must be received by the deadline referenced in the ineligibility letter. An appeal if submitted should speak in detail to mitigating or extenuating circumstances that affected the student’s academic performance e.g., severe physical injury or mental trauma.

State Grants
