Loan and Grant Eligibility: Students may qualify for two types of assistance through Federal Student Aid.
Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Direct Loans are subject to annual limits and may be used to pay for costs of education in excess of your EFC (expected family contribution).
The Federal Pell Grant applies only to Acupuncture students who have not received a four year post-secondary degree. This amount is determined by the U.S. Department of Education and your EFC.
Scholarships: Some students are interested in scholarship opportunities. You can identify scholarships available for students studying Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine at http://www.acupuncture.edu/scholarships/
Approval/Receipt of Aid/Graduate: Students waiting for financial aid approval must follow the tuition schedule policy (see Tuition/Refund). Students that are not registered at least half-time, withdraw or drop, will not be able to receive financial aid. Additionally students who withdraw or graduate must complete an Exit Interview by visiting the link: http://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds_SA/
Excess Money: If financial aid received exceeds the amount due to the school after tuition and fees are paid, the student may choose one of two options:
- The credit balance can be issued to the borrower within 14 calendar days after the date loans and grants are received.
- The credit balance can be returned to the lender, reducing the amount borrowed, and interest paid.
If you have questions or concerns about financial aid you can contact the Financial Aid Director, Liz Hojan
