Financial Aid

Admissions
Fei Tian's Financial Aid for Academic Year 2019-2020

The College offers need and merit-based institutional scholarships and aid to promising students*.

Need-based aid is awarded on a competitive basis to students with demonstrated financial need, satisfactory academic and moral standing.

Merit-based scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to students with good academic standing, moral standing, extracurricular participation and other merit indicators.

Applicants for the College's Institutional Scholarship and Financial Aid must be currently enrolled or intending to apply as a full-time student. Degree-seeking part time or non-degree seeking students who wish to apply can contact Student Financial Services (SFS). 

Institutional Scholarships and Financial Aid are awarded on an annual basis, and do not renew automatically. Applicants must submit an application and supporting documents for each academic year to be considered.

Should a student discontinue a portion of that enrollment period, appropriate adjustments will be made to the student’s award in accordance with the refund and repayment policies of the College.

 

In the case a student's eligibility for financial aid and scholarships change, the SFS will make adjustments to the previous awarded amount. This may result in the immediate reversal of award, and may leave the student with an outstanding balance. Students must note that if your enrollment status changes between full-time and part-time, you will automatically forfeit all previously awarded aid and you may be required to reapply for financial aid and scholarship.

*The combined need and merit financial award package will typically not exceed 75% of tuition. Under extraordinary circumstances, additional awards may be considered by the President.

Merit-Based Scholarship
 

Academic Scholarship for 2019-2020 Incoming Freshman:

The College offers awards to outstanding undergraduate students with a demonstrated record of excellence in their chosen field. Selection criteria for this program include: outstanding academic performance.

 

Freshman/Transfer students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA in order to retain their academic scholarship. Once enrolled into the College, the level of scholarship will not change if your cumulative GPA goes higher or lower. At the end of every semester, SFS monitors the posted grades of all scholarship recipients to ensure they have met their scholarship requirements.

If a student fails to meet the requirements of the academic scholarship but has maintained a GPA higher than 2.5 but below the GPA required by their scholarship and has met Satisfactory Academic Progress, the student may be offered a one-time grace period for the next semester. This grace period is not guaranteed and is dependent on

the availability of funds at that time. In the following semester, the student's grade will be re-evaluated. If the student fails to achieve the required GPA, the scholarship will be suspended.

 

Once a student re-establishes the cumulative GPA for their level of academic scholarship, the student must email SFS for special consideration. As scholarships are dependent on the availability of funds, the re-awarding of the academic scholarship is only considered and not guaranteed.
