Undergraduate Financial Aid and Scholarships

RIT feels strongly that cost should not prohibit qualified students from considering RIT. With this in mind, the university offers a full range of financial aid programs.

More than 77 percent of RIT full-time undergraduate students receive some type of financial assistance each year. Last year, RIT undergraduates received more than $285 million from all sources, including more than $165 million in scholarships and grants.

Your financial need

Eligibility for need-based financial aid at RIT begins with three basic requirements: graduation from high school or its equivalent, admission in an approved degree program, and demonstration of financial need. Most financial aid programs also require at least half-time enrollment.

Financial need is the difference between the cost of education and the amount a student is expected to contribute toward those educational costs (the expected family contribution). The formula used to calculate the expected family contribution is called the federal methodology, and use of the formula is required when colleges are determining a student’s financial need for any federal financial aid programs. Financial aid programs are designed to supplement the expected family contribution.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be completed in order to determine a student’s financial need. Information on the FAFSA is used to calculate the expected family contribution. All colleges and universities that award federal financial aid use the FAFSA. Students can complete the FAFSA online at fafsa.gov.

Determination of financial aid eligibility can be complex. Therefore, families are encouraged to contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships with any questions or concerns. Students and families are encouraged to pursue all available sources of financial aid. If students are denied financial aid from one source, that does not necessarily mean they will be denied financial aid from another source.

Application

The process of applying for financial aid should begin in January of the year the student plans to attend. The application priority date for freshmen applying for fall entry is March 1. The application priority date for transfer students entering RIT in the fall is March 15. Both freshmen and transfer students applying for spring entry should file the FAFSA by November 1. Current RIT students should submit the FAFSA by April 1. Filing the FAFSA by these priority dates will allow RIT to provide students with financial aid awards when award notification begins. Applications received after these dates will be awarded as long as funds are available.

Students must reapply for financial aid each year by completing the FAFSA. Also, students must maintain minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will make every effort to provide a similar amount of institutional gift aid, provided students apply on time and demonstrate a similar amount of financial need.

Notification

Freshman and transfer students can expect notification of financial aid awards beginning March 15. Current RIT students can expect award notification beginning in June.

Types of aid

At RIT, there are four general categories of financial aid: scholarships, grants, loans, and employment. An applicant for financial aid is considered for each of these categories.

Scholarships

Scholarships generally are awarded on the basis of academic record. RIT awards many such scholarships each year. Other typical scholarship sources include corporations, private donors, foundations, fraternal organizations, unions, and local and state governments.

RIT offers academic merit scholarships to both freshman and transfer students. For example, Presidential Scholarships, Achievement Scholarships, and Computing Medal Scholarships are awarded to freshmen. Trustee Scholarships, Achievement Scholarships, and Phi Theta Kappa Scholarships are awarded to transfer students. Scholarship recipients are chosen on the basis of their academic record, recommendations, extracurricular activities, and requirements for their intended major. The combined value of merit scholarships from all sources cannot exceed tuition. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for more details on these programs.

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships encourages students to apply for scholarships awarded by private organizations. This is an excellent source of funding that may reduce the need to borrow. In many cases, no adjustment to a student’s financial aid award is necessary. If we are required by federal regulations to adjust a financial aid award as a result of an outside scholarship, we will make every effort to reduce the student’s loan or work study award before reducing RIT need-based grants.

Grants

Grants are gifts of financial assistance awarded on the basis of demonstrated need. Grant award amounts from RIT vary up to $16,000 per academic year. RIT also awards grants under the federally funded Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant Program (SEOG). The Federal Pell Grant and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) are additional examples of grants. Other states offer grants as well.

Student loans

Student loans are provided through a formal financial obligation that must be repaid. Students need to be aware of the interest rates, the method of payment after graduation, and the effect that loans will have on their ability to meet later financial obligations. Student loans generally are not repaid until after graduation or termination of study.

Many students utilize the Subsidized Federal Direct Loan or the Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan in meeting their costs. RIT also awards Federal Perkins Loans. These programs are administered by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for eligible students.

Parents also are eligible to participate in the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) program. This program is available to supplement other aid programs in meeting educational costs. While the PLUS is not based on need, the amount borrowed in any year cannot exceed educational costs minus other financial aid received.

Private lenders also offer educational loans to assist families in meeting educational expenses. These loans are available to students who are creditworthy as determined by the lender. We encourage students and families to use alternative loans as a last option after first pursuing all federal loan options. Students have the option of choosing their lender for a private loan. Additional information is available from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Employment

Employment opportunities are available to assist RIT students in meeting college expenses. Students may choose to defray some of their expenses by working part time while attending the university.

As part of a financial aid award at RIT, students may be offered employment in the federal work-study program. More than 6,000 students are employed on campus each year. The Student Employment Office also assists students in securing part-time employment off campus.

RIT’s cooperative education program is another employment opportunity available to assist in meeting college expenses. Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Cooperative Education and Career Services and their academic adviser to learn more about co-op opportunities.

Academic progress requirements for state aid programs

New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

In order to receive a TAP grant, an individual must be admitted as a full-time student in an approved program, meet New York State residency and income requirements, pursue the program of study in which he or she is enrolled, and make satisfactory progress toward completion of his or her program of study.

TAP academic requirements are current as of the 2014-15 year. Standards are subject to change by legislative action.

Completion of a course is defined as meeting course requirements and receiving a letter grade of A, B, C, D or F.

State regulations mandate that if a student repeats a course in which a passing grade acceptable to the university was previously received, the repeated course does not count toward the minimum 12-credit-hour course load required for TAP and other state programs.

In addition, an accelerated TAP payment cannot be received unless the recipient completes a minimum of 24 RIT credit hours in the previous two terms. An accelerated term is the third consecutive term of enrollment at RIT.

Waiver of academic progress standards for TAP

Students who have been denied TAP benefits due to failure to maintain satisfactory standards of academic progress may request a one-time waiver of those standards. State regulations require that these waivers be granted only under exceptional or extraordinary circumstances. Students failing to meet satisfactory progress standards will be given the opportunity to contact an institutional representative in the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to discuss their situation. The institutional representative will require documentation as appropriate and establish deadlines for submission of this documentation.

Under the regulations established by the Commissioner of Education, the decision of the institutional representative will be final. Students who, in the judgment of the institutional representative, satisfactorily meet the criteria for the waiver may have one waiver at the undergraduate level. Those wishing to apply for waivers must do so during the term in which notification of TAP denial was sent.

Reasons for which a waiver may be granted include the following:

  1. Verifiable illness of the student or member of the student’s immediate family during the semester in which academic standards were not met
  2. Death of a member of the student’s family during the semester in which standards were not met
  3. Divorce/separation within the student’s immediate family creating a demonstrable financial/emotional disruption sufficient to affect progress
  4. Circumstances that the student feels were extenuating; applicants must explain why circumstances were extenuating and beyond their control

These regulations are subject to legislative change.

Please note: Only students in the HEOP program are eligible for more than four years of undergraduate awards.

Academic progress requirements for federal aid programs

Federal regulations require financial aid recipients to maintain minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress (SAP) for continued receipt of federally sponsored aid. All students receiving federal assistance must remain admitted in a degree program. Regulations require a maximum time frame for degree completion, a quantitative measurement (credits attempted versus earned toward a degree) and a qualitative measurement (cumulative grade-point average). The annual review of academic progress at the end of the spring semester each year considers all terms of enrollment, including terms in which no federal aid was received.

Students are allowed a maximum of 150 percent of the published program length to complete their program (i.e. 120 credit program = 180 credit maximum).

The minimum qualitative, or grade point average requirement, is outline below:

Completion of 1st semester—minimum cumulative GPA = 1.5

Completion of 2nd semester—minimum cumulative GPA = 1.5

Completion of 3rd semester—minimum cumulative GPA = 1.8

Completion of semesters 4 through 12—minimum cumulative GPA = 2.0

In order to successfully meet the quantitative component of satisfactory academic progress, students must complete 66.67 percent of credits attempted. The following are considered attempted credits:

  • withdrawals
  • repeated courses
  • non-matriculated courses
  • incompletes
  • grade exclusions
  • credit by exam

Additional eligibility requirements

Transfer students

Cumulative grade-point average requirements are the same as for nontransfer students (i.e., students must obtain a 2.0 GPA at the end of their second year). Transfer students are expected to complete 66.67 percent of credits attempted. Transfer students also are allowed a maximum of 150 percent of the published program length to complete their program.

Repeated course work

Students repeating a course previously passed may do so only once. A course repeated more than once will not be included when determining enrollment status for federally sponsored financial aid.

The federal standards of satisfactory academic progress are applicable to the following aid programs: Federal Work-Study, Federal Pell and SEOG grants, and Federal Perkins, Direct Subsidized, Direct Unsubsidized, and Direct PLUS loans.

Student loan recipients also should note that all Federal Direct Loan Programs have specific annual and cumulative maximum amounts. The loan limits are listed in the Undergraduate Financial Aid Programs 2014-2015 chart and in the U.S. Department of Education Student Guide. Copies of the guide are available in the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Notification and appeal

Students whose academic progress is not in compliance with federal regulations will be notified of the deficiency. Students who do not meet minimum SAP standards may continue to receive federal aid during a probationary period, not to exceed one payment period, as the result of a successful appeal. After one payment period on probation students must make SAP or must be meeting the requirements of an academic plan. Students may appeal due to special circumstances such as death of a relative, or injury or illness of the student. The following information must be provided to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to be considered for receipt of federally sponsored financial aid during a probationary period and under an academic plan:

  • Documentation of student’s special circumstances
  • Written letter from student indicating why the student failed to make SAP and what has changed in the student’s situation that would allow the student to meet SAP standards, and
  • A written plan of work from the student’s academic adviser that outlines the courses required and the minimum GPA requirements for the next academic year

Academic progress requirements for RIT grants and scholarships

Academic progress requirements for RIT need-based grants are the same as the requirements for federal aid programs. Academic requirements and award duration for merit or special-purpose scholarship programs sponsored by RIT may differ from those used in RIT’s need-based programs. Recipients are advised of merit scholarship terms and conditions at the time awards are made.

Student responsibilities

Recipients of financial aid are responsible for reporting any significant changes in their financial situation during the year to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for review. These changes may require a revision to the applicant’s financial aid.

Financial aid refund policy

Return of federal funds

In accordance with federal regulations, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships recalculates federal aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are suspended, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60 percent of a term.

“Withdrawal date” is defined as the actual date the student initiated the withdrawal process, the student’s last date of recorded attendance, or the midpoint of the semester for a student who leaves without notifying the university. Recalculation is based on the percent of earned aid using the following formula: number of days completed up to the withdrawal date/total days in the semester. Aid returned to federal programs is then equal to 100 percent minus the percentage earned multiplied by the amount of federal aid disbursed.

Funds are returned to the federal government in the following sequence: Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Direct Subsidized Loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS, Federal Parent PLUS Loans, Federal Pell Grants, Federal SEOG, other federal grants.

Late disbursement

If the student is otherwise eligible, the first disbursement of Federal Direct Subsidized Loan or Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan proceeds is allowed up to 180 days after the student has ceased to be enrolled. Subsequent disbursements are not allowed.

State scholarships

Regulations vary. Any adjustments are done in accordance with the specific requirements of the sponsoring state.

Privately funded grants and scholarships

In the absence of specific instructions from the sponsor, 100 percent of the semester award will be credited to the student’s account.

RIT grants and scholarships

If a credit balance remains after all federal, state and private adjustments, a percentage of the remaining credit balance is returned to the RIT scholarship account according to the following formula, where A = scholarship amount; B = scholarship plus student payments; C = percent returned to scholarship program; D = remaining credit balance; and E = amount returned to scholarship program:

A/B=C CxD=E
