Tarleton State University offers student financial aid in the form of loans, grants, work opportunities and scholarships to help assist with your educational expenses while attending Tarleton State University . To determine a student's eligibility for financial aid, the student and parent (if the student is dependent) must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
To apply for financial aid, a student must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. To access the online FAFSA you must go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. A student and parent must first apply for the FSA ID. The FSA ID is a unique federal identifier that allows you to complete the FAFSA, make FAFSA corrections and access your federal financial aid history. The FSA ID is also accessed through the www.fafsa.ed.gov website.
Academic Eligibility Requirements for Financial Aid
Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy
Federal and state regulations require all students to make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward completion of degree, certificate or licensure requirements to receive student financial aid. All terms of attempted enrollment are considered in determining satisfactory academic progress regardless of whether aid was awarded for the term. Failure to meet satisfactory progress standards results in ineligibility for all types of federal , state and university aid administered by the Student Financial Aid Office at Tarleton State University (TSU).
Monitoring satisfactory academic progress begins with the first credit attempted and is done at the end of spring semester (summer, fall and spring).
Qualitative Standard: Grade Point Average (GPA)
Attempted credits include all courses on student records after the 12th class day, including withdrawals, incompletes, repeats, noncredit and remedial courses. TSU’s satisfactory progress policy requires that students achieve the following cumulative grade point averages:
Undergraduate Students: 2.0 Graduate Students: 3.0
Quantitative Standard (Pace): Completion Percentage (Deficit Hours)
Financial aid standards require students to satisfactorily complete a minimum of 67% of their total cumulative attempted credits. This percentage includes all institutional and transfer credit hours, regardless of whether or not financial aid was received. Hours successfully completed include those with grades of A, B, C, D, P and S. Grades of F, I, K, Q, W, WF, U, NG and grad exclusions are not considered to be adequate grades for completion. The calculation used to determine the completion rate:
Total Hours Successfully Completed
Total Hours Attempted = Completion Rate
Quantitative Standard: Maximum Hours Attempted (Excessive Hours)
Students are expected to complete their degree pursuits within a maximum timeframe, including transfer hours earned as well as institutional attempted credits. Credits attempted to complete a degree and receive financial aid cannot exceed 150% of the credits required to complete the degree program. Credit hours are cumulative; thus, students obtaining more than the maximum hours (e.g., change in major) may reach this maximum timeframe before completing their course of study and may need to appeal the timeframe eligibility. Students may not receive financial assistance beyond the following:
Undergraduate Students: 180 Hours
Graduate Students: 54 Hours
Doctoral: 108 Hours
Failure to Meet Standards
If at the end of spring semester, a student fails to meet any of the above Satisfactory Academic Standard(s), he/she will be placed on financial aid suspension for each standard not being met.
Financial aid suspension status may be appealed to Student Financial Aid. Appeals are made on the basis of extraordinary or mitigating circumstances (including but not limited to major illness, death in the family, serious accident, etc.) or the successful completion of additional coursework. The appeal must state why the student failed to make satisfactory academic progress and what has changed in the student’s situation that would allow the student to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress by the end of the following spring semester. Each case is reviewed individually. The Student Financial Aid Office informs the student in writing within seven business days of its decision, provided adequate documentation was submitted by the student.
If the appeal is approved, financial aid eligibility will be reinstated for a probationary semester. Written notification (financial aid contract) will include the standards the student is expected to meet in order to retain financial aid eligibility at the end of the semester.
If at the end of a probationary semester, the student meets TSU’s probationary term requirements but has not met TSU’s cumulative standards, TSU will permit the student to retain financial aid eligibility under a “continued probation” status. Probation status continues to be monitored each semester until the student meets TSU’s cumulative standards for completion percentage and grade point average (GPA), at which time the student will be returned to “good standing”.
If a student on “continued probation” status fails to meet TSU’s cumulative standard(s) or the standards required for the probationary semester, TSU will suspend the student from financial aid eligibility.
If an appeal is denied, written notification will state the reason(s) for the denial and the process of appealing the denial.
A student not satisfied with an denied decision may submit a subsequent appeal to the university’s appeal committee.
Programs that require longer than the maximum hours attempted limits must have individual approval from the Student Financial Aid Office through the appeal process. Students must submit for review an academic plan approved and signed by their advisor indicating the semester(s) remaining for degree completion, a course plan for each remaining semester, and projected graduation date. Appeals for hours in excess of 150% solely to improve GPA are not approved, unless the course is part of an approved academic plan. Submission of an appeal does not indicate automatic approval of the academic plan. Each appeal is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Students who fail to meet the minimum standards will be notified by email (go.tarleton email) when they are placed on probation or suspension. It is possible for students to be placed on financial aid suspension for failure to meet more than one type of Satisfactory Academic Progress Standard. Students who have not received financial aid in the past are immediately subject to standards when they apply for financial aid.
Re-Establishing Eligibility After Financial Aid Suspension
Students whose financial aid eligibility has been suspended may regain eligibility only through TSU’s appeal process or when they meet the institution’s satisfactory academic progress quantitative and qualitative standards. If Incomplete (I) hours are a factor in failure to maintain satisfactory progress, subsequent successful completion of these hours may be used to re-establish eligibility for aid. Paying for classes out of pocket or sitting out a period of time in and of itself is not sufficient to re-establish a student’s financial aid eligibility.
Students who repeat a course may receive financial assistance more than once for enrollment in the same course. When a course is repeated, each enrollment is included in calculating the percentage of successfully completed hours and the total number of attempted hours is used to determine length of eligibility. For example, a student enrolls in a three hour course, fails it and the following semester re-enrolls in the same course and earns a C. That student would have enrolled in in six hours, but successfully completed only three hours. Repeating a course more than once results in removal of only one previous grade from the GPA calculation.
Federal regulations also stipulate the way enrollment status is determined for students who are repeating coursework in which they previously received a letter grade of D- or higher. An institution may pay a student one time for retaking previously-passed coursework. To determine a student’s enrollment status (full-time vs. part-time), the school may not include more than one repetition of a previously passed course.
Example: Two years ago, Sam enrolled in a 3-hour Applied Mathematics course and received a grade of D-. Sam took the same course again last year and received a grade of C-. His major requires that he pass the class with a C or better, so Sam decides to take the course again this semester. Sam is enrolled in 9 hours of other coursework plus the Applied Math class, for a total of 12 hours. The 3 hours of that class are not included in determining Sam’s enrollment status for the current semester because it is the second time he is repeating a class in which he previously received a “passing” grade. Sam would be paid financial aid as a part-time student because he is enrolled in 12 hours minus the 3 hours of the course he’s repeating for the second time, which do not count. For financial aid purposes, Sam is enrolled in 9 eligible hours.
Withdrawing or Dropping Classes
If you withdraw from all classes, either officially or unofficially, on or before completing the term and you have received Title IV federal funds in the form of a Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant, Federal Direct loans, or a Federal PLUS loan, the federal government requires that we review your eligibility for those funds. We are required to apply a federally mandated formula to determine how much of the federal funding was “earned” up to the time of withdrawal. This review and recalculation is called a “Return of Title IV Aid”.
The Title IV funds that were disbursed in excess of the earned amount must be returned to the federal government by the university and/or you.
The amount to be returned to the federal government will be calculated from the date you officially withdrew from classes or, in the case of an unofficial withdrawal (see section above), the last date you were involved in an academically related activity.
Priority for campus-based funding is given to students who meet certain income eligibility requirements and have submitted their FAFSA to the Central Processor on or before March 1, 2016.
No aid will be processed less than two weeks from the end of the term (semester).
Applicants are responsible for the timeliness and promptness of their applications.
Federal Direct Loan Program
Federal Direct Loans are student loans that must be repaid and are available to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Annual Undergraduate loan limits may not exceed $5,500 (of which no more than $3,500 may be subsidized) for freshmen; $6,500 (of which no more than $4,500 may be subsidized) for sophomores; and $7,500 (of which no more than $5,500 may be subsidized) for juniors and seniors. Annual Graduate student loan limits are limited to $20,500 in unsubsidized loans. In addition, students must be enrolled in at least 6 semester hours to qualify.
A subsidized loan is awarded on the basis of financial need. If eligible for a subsidized loan, the government will pay (subsidize) the interest on the loan while the student is in school and for the first six months after leaving school (grace period). However, for subsidized loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2012, and before July 1, 2014, the student is responsible for the interest that accrues while the loan is in the grace period.
First time student loan borrowers must complete the Entrance Loan Counseling and the Electronic Promissory Note before TSU can release the first disbursement of their Federal Direct Student loan.
For an unsubsidized loan, the student is responsible for the interest from the time the unsubsidized loan is disbursed until it is paid in full.
Students begin repaying Federal Direct Student loans six months after they drop below half-time enrollment or graduate from college.
Federal Direct Plus Loans (Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students)
Parent Loans are made by the Department of Education to parents to assist in meeting education costs. Parents, on behalf of their dependents, may borrow the annual loan limit of the cost of education, less other financial aid. Repayment is generally due within 60 days of the full loan disbursement. Fees charged to the PLUS borrower are deducted form the loan proceeds when the money is sent to the student’s school.
Application for all short-term loans is made through the Student Financial Aid Office. Distribution and repayment of funds is made in the Business Office. Students will be allowed to have only one Tarleton Loan and one Tuition and Fee Emergency Loan for the first installment only or one Stephen Loan per semester. All short-term loans are paid at the cashier’s window in the Administration Building.
These loans must be used for room and board only. There is a service charge. Loans not paid on time will be assessed a late fee. Loans are due approximately 90 days after signing the promissory note or the end of the semester, whichever is earlier.
These loans must be used for books only. Students may borrow up to $500. The loan will be available on the student’s Texan Card to be used at the Tarleton Campus Bookstore located in the Thompson Student Center. A service charge will be assessed. Loans are due approximately 90 days after signing the promissory note or the end of the semester, whichever is earlier. Loans not paid on time will be assessed a late fee.
Tuition and Fee Emergency Loans
Conditions are as follows:
- Tuition and Fee Emergency Loans are for the first installment of tuition and fees only. Loan applications must be submitted to the Student Financial Aid Office. These loans are applied automatically to the student’s account.
- Eligible students’ applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Maximum loan amount per student may not exceed the amount owed in tuition and required fees for the courses in which the student is actually enrolling.
- A promissory note with an interest rate of 5 percent per annum will be executed by the student to be repaid over a period not to exceed ninety days for a loan made for a regular semester, or thirty days for a summer session.
The Stephen Memorial Loan Fund
This fund was established from the will of Na Homer Stephen in memory of M. L. Matt and Mattie Stephen.
Tarleton Loan Fund
When the state of Texas took over Tarleton State College in 1917, among the many gifts provided by citizens of Stephenville was a cash gift of $75,000 with which to commemorate the name of John Tarleton, the original benefactor who made the establishment of Tarleton State University possible in 1899. Citizens of Stephenville and Erath County remembered John Tarleton with great affection, and for that reason this money was raised by private subscription and turned over to the Board of Directors to be used as a student loan fund. The Board of Directors immediately invested the $75,000 as an endowment, making available for loans the income from interest. The first student loans were made in 1920.
Late Payments on Loans
When a student does not make payment on any outstanding loan by the due date, his/her records will be blocked immediately.
Federal Pell Grants
Pell Grants are available to eligible undergraduates. Pell Grant funds are disbursed based on number of hours enrolled as of the Pell Census date (or the 12th class day). All other sources of aid will be given in addition to the Pell Grant.
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
These grants, ranging from $100 to $4,000 per year, are available to help needy undergraduates meet education expenses.
The Texas Public Education Grant
This grant was established by the Texas State Legislature to help needy students. Under this program, students may receive grants ranging from $100 and up.
Toward EXcellence, Access and Success (TEXAS) Grant Program
The TEXAS Grant Program was established in 1999 by the Texas Legislature to provide need-based financial assistance to resident Texas students who completed the Recommended high school program. Eligible students may receive an amount up to the cost of required tuition and fees each academic year of eligibility. Some restrictions apply.
To be eligible for the TEXAS grant, a student must be a Texas resident and a graduate from a public or accredited private high school and must demonstrate exceptional financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). March 15 is the state priority deadline for identifying eligible students to be given priority in receiving awards through the state financial aid program.
