There are several Financial Aid announcements this month. Scroll down to continue reading, or click to jump to a topic:
After Fall 2017 grades are posted, the Financial Aid & Scholarship Office will start reviewing students to determine their continued eligibility for financial aid for the Spring 2018 semester.
A student who is receiving financial aid from MTSU, such as grants, loans, and most types of scholarships, must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements:
Notification: You can view your SAP status in the financial aid section of PipelineMT (under the Requirements & Holds section). For some types of ineligibility factors, you will also be notified of the status via your MTSU email address.
A student may appeal if he/she didn’t meet the Completion Rate requirement because of extenuating circumstances; click here for more information. You may be able to receive an extension on the time limit in certain cases. If you lose eligibility for aid, please read any ineligibility notification emails carefully. You can contact the MT OneStop for additional information about your options; contact information is available here.
Do you have a Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship (TELS)? You will need to meet the enrollment and GPA requirements each semester to continue to receive the award:
If you are receiving a lottery scholarship, you should’ve received an email in mid-December with reminders of the continuing eligibility requirements and information about how to view your lottery scholarship status after the Fall 2017 semester.
Please visit our website for more information about how the TELS GPA and attempted hours are calculated, how a student can regain GPA eligibility, what types of appeals are allowed, and other important information.
The 2018–2019 FAFSA can now be completed. To file a 2018–2019 FAFSA, go to www.fafsa.gov. MTSU’s federal school code is 003510.
The FAFSA is used to determine the student’s financial aid eligibility for Fall 2018 through Summer 2019 for various federal, state, and institutional programs. We recommend that students with financial need file the FAFSA as early as possible, due to the limited funding availability in some aid programs.
If this is the first time you and/or parents or spouse (if applicable) will be completing a FAFSA, then you and/or parents or spouse (if applicable) should apply for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID here. The FSA ID is used to login to certain federal websites to access financial aid information and to electronically sign federal student aid documents such as the FAFSA. If you already have a FSA ID, there is no need to apply for a new one. If your name has changed, you will need to edit your FSA ID information.
The MTSU Admissions Office has sent out Freshman Scholarship Offer notification letters and award certificates to those incoming freshman who had completed the Admissions/Scholarship process by the December 1st deadline.
Students have until May 1st, 2018 to accept the scholarship for the upcoming Fall 2018 – Spring 2019 academic year.
