The federal grant is based on current enrollment status, need, as determined by a Congress-established formula, and funding levels of the current award year. Generally, funds do not have to be repaid but they are subject to Return to Title IV rules, which apply an "earned funds" test if a semester is not completed. The 2019/2020 awards range from $0 - $6195.00. Filing deadlines for the 2019/2020 academic year are no earlier than October, 2018 and no later than June 30, 2020. The first step to complete an aid application (FAFSA) is to obtain a FSA User ID & Password. You will need a valid e-mail address to receive the FSA User ID. Dependant students (as determined by the Department of Ed guidelines) will need a parent to apply as well. Next, you will proceed to fafsa.ed.gov to start the Free Application for the Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Make sure you choose the 2019/2020 tab. Complete all sections based on the directions provided on the site. Individual income information based on 2017 tax returns (student and parent) can be downloaded to the application directly from the IRS by use of the FSA User ID. This is the preferable method for 2019/2020. You may add one or more school codes to receive an electronic version of your application (ISIR). The code for ETI is 030790. You must also indicate a housing plan. When you have completed all necessary fields, you will be asked to declare that your information is true and then sign with your FSA User ID. A confirmation screen will come up which you should print for your records. You will receive a Student Aid Report through your e-mail.
This federal grant is available to Pell-eligible students with exceptional need subject to availability. It is subject to the Return of Title IV funds if you do not complete the scheduled term.
This is a need-based loan with a fixed interest rate that does not accrue if you are at least a half-time student. The 2019/20 rate is
4.53%. This loan has an origination fee of 1.059%. First-year students may borrow up to $3500.00 per year depending on need as determined by the Cost of Attendance; second-year students' limit is up to $4500.00
Please note: For all new borrowers who receive a loan on or after July 1, 2013 a 150% limitation is in effect. This means a student who is eligible for a subsidized loan will reach their subsidized limit at 150% of a program's length of study. Once a student has reached their 150% limitation, their interest subsidy Loan limit will end on all outstanding loans that were disbursed after July 1, 2013, and interest will begin to accrue. Students are therefore encouraged to complete undergraduate study on a timely basis.
This is a fixed-interest loan that accrues interest from the time it is disbursed, on the portion that is disbursed, and until it is paid in full. The 2019/20 rate is
4.53%. It is subject to the same origination fee as noted in the section above. Loan limit is up to $6000.00 per year based on the Cost of Attendance. Dependant students are limited to $2000.00 per year.
This loan allows a parent (or the legal equivalent) to borrow up to the Cost of Attendance minus all other student aid. Interest for the 2019/2020 year is 7.08%. The origination fee is 4.236%. Eligibility for a PLUS loan is based on creditworthiness as determined by the Servicing Center.
