Student billing information will be available electronically at the students capital.edu e-mail address, payments also may be made via the Web. For additional information, please refer to the Student Accounts web site at http://www.capital.edu/studentaccounts/. Payments for first semester are due by August 12, 2011. Payments for second semester are due by December 12, 2011.

Students who have been awarded financial aid will receive information from the Financial Aid Office and Student Accounts explaining how the financial aid will be applied toward the student’s account.

Tuition Payment Plans. For persons wishing to budget annual costs on a monthly basis, a 10-month payment program is available through a management service. Information on this plan may be obtained from the Student Accounts Office.

Transcripts and Graduation. Satisfactory settlement of all financial obligations to the university is required before graduation or before academic transcripts are released.

Special Deposits and Fees

  1. Each student is required to pay a $100 Residence Hall Room Charge Deposit or to make arrangements with the Office of Residence Life to live off campus. The deposit is credited to the student’s room charge if the student enrolls the following semester, and is refundable only upon written notification received by the Office of Residence Life no later than May 1, 2011. All students living in university residence halls are required to be on the university board program.
  2. Any full-time student in the College of Arts and Sciences or in the Conservatory of Music seeking certification in teacher education will be charged a Professional Education Fee (PEF) of $390. All PEF payments are non-refundable.
  3. Tuition Waiver Certificate Service Fee. Persons wishing to use a Tuition Waiver Certificate issued to their employer by the School of Nursing or the College of Arts and Sciences must submit the certificate with a $50 per course service fee to the Finance Office. Information on this program may be obtained from the School of Nursing or College of Arts and Sciences.
  4. Traditional Undergraduate Student Health Insurance. Capital University is pleased to provide students with a comprehensive form of accident and sickness insurance, underwritten by National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA, for the 2011-2012 school year.

    Capital University requires all students registered six or more credit hours to automatically be enrolled in the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. Fees for this insurance are included on the student’s tuition bill. Students who are currently insured by a health insurance policy (i.e., their own or through their parent’s) may waive the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. Waivers need to be completed online prior to September 9, 2011. If you do not complete the online waiver, you will automatically be assessed a single student insurance premium on your student invoice.

    Please note all waiver information will be verified by a third party agency, with your insurance company as part of the insurance verification process. If insurance status cannot be verified, the waiver will be revoked and the insurance premium will remain on your student account.

    No waivers will be accepted after September 9, 2011, the last day of Add/Drop for the term. If the waiver deadlines are ignored, you will be responsible for the insurance premium. Your insurance charge will not be removed from your tuition bill without an approved waiver.

    The online waiver can be accessed at www.studentinsurance.com.

Withdrawal: Payment Obligations and Refunds. To withdraw from an individual course or to withdraw completely from the university, the student must complete and submit the appropriate form to the Registrar’s Office. No refund will be made without such official written notification.

For a student who officially withdraws from the university during a semester, the amount of tuition refunded is determined by the student’s official withdrawal date as set by the Registrar’s Office. The amount of tuition refunded is calculated as follows:

  - withdrawal through the 2nd week of the semester 100%
  - withdrawal during the 3rd & 4th week of the semester 75%
  - withdrawal during the 5th & 6th week of the semester 50%
  - withdrawal after the 6th week of the semester 0%

For students who withdraw from Capital and are on the university room and board plan, you will be charged the full room charge for the semester and your meal plan will be prorated based on the date of checkout and key return with the Office of Residence Life and Housing.

Financial aid awards for students who withdraw also are subject to adjustment.

A student who feels that individual circumstances warrant exception to the above policy may file a written appeal with the director of Student Accounts.

Financial Aid

Scholarships, Awards, Loans and Grants

General Information*

Capital University offers many kinds of financial aid to help students and their parents defray the expenses of the students’ education. Several scholarship programs recognize academically superior students without regard to financial need. These awards are renewed each year if a student meets the required grade point average. While most types of financial assistance are granted for only one academic year, students may expect to receive financial assistance in subsequent years of undergraduate study if they refile each year, and (1) remain in good academic and personal standing (students are required to be in compliance with the “Student Code of Conduct” as explained in the Student Handbook), (2) meet Standards of Progress (SAP), and (3) their computed financial need does not decrease.

STUDENTS MUST REAPPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID ADMINISTERED BY CAPITAL UNIVERSITY EACH YEAR PRIOR TO APRIL 16 by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The FAFSA Renewal Form is available by using your PIN (personal identification number) from the link “FAFSA on the Web” found on Capital’s site at www.capital.edu/cc/finaid/ or at www.pin.ed.gov. Once Capital receives the results, the student will be notified (via e-mail from Capital’s Financial Aid Office) of aid eligibility for the following academic year.

Capital University strongly encourages all families to annually complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) so that all eligible resources can be identified. Capital resources are identified from the filing of the FAFSA. The process is free. Families can file electronically at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Prior to filing the FAFSA online, be sure to request a PIN with the Department of Education at www.pin.ed.gov. Electronic filing is faster and less error-prone. By filing electronically, students can avoid delays because the software immediately identifies errors and allows for on-the-spot corrections. FAFSA on the Web can be accessed with many popular browsers, including Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Help is available by calling the customer service hotline at 1-800-801-0576 (TDD 1-800-511-5806).

All financial aid awards are subject to change or modification if a student changes enrollment status, housing plans, or receives additional funding not considered at the time of the original award. This may include Capital University academic-based awards when the student’s costs to the university have been fully met by other resources.

Withdrawal from the University

Students who withdraw from the university during a term should understand that reimbursements are made to aid programs first and the student last. Withdrawals at any time may affect loan repayment options and students should always follow official withdrawal procedure which includes meeting with the Financial Aid Office.

For financial aid information for Center for Lifelong Learning students, see the Adult and Continuing Education  section of the Bulletin.

*Law and MBA students should consult appropriate sections in their bulletins for financial aid information.

Standards of Progress (SAP)

Federal regulations require an institution to establish, publish and apply reasonable standards of measuring whether an otherwise eligible student is maintaining satisfactory progress in their course of study.

The standards must include both a qualitative and quantitative measure. Capital’s qualitative measure includes grades while quantitative standards measure a time frame in which students must complete their educational objective. This time frame must be based upon enrollment status and be divided into increments as well as include a schedule designating the minimum amount of work to be completed at the end of each increment. The maximum time frame for an undergraduate program cannot exceed 150 percent of the published length of our educational program for full-time students.

For Capital students, the maximum time frame which students are allowed to receive federal financial assistance is 186 hours. Any full-time student applying for federal aid beyond 186 hours will be automatically ineligible to continue receiving assistance unless a special appeal is filed and granted. Qualitative requirements are based on the individual colleges and/or school’s academic requirements for continued academic enrollment. Quantitative requirements are as follows:

Attempted Hours 1-29.99 30-59.99 60-89.99 90-186
% of Hours Needed to Complete 65% 70% 75% 80%


Formal dismissal from the University automatically cancels any eligibility for financial aid. See “Dismissal, Academic” in the “Undergraduate Academic Policies, Regulations and General Information ” section of this Bulletin for additional information and information regarding the appeal process for reinstatement.

Verification/Quality Assurance

Capital University is responsible for assuring accuracy of data reported on the FAFSA by you and/or your family. If requested, you will need to provide additional documentation.

For individuals filing the FAFSA, the federal government requires that Capital University assure the accuracy of data reported on this form. Files are selected based on criteria established by the federal government and, if selected, Capital is required to collect documentation to verify the information which was provided on the FAFSA. If documentation is not received, cancellation of all need-based Federal, State, and institutional aid will result.

If selected, this process must be completed PRIOR to finalizing and crediting aid. If a term has started and Verification has not been completed, enrollment should not be attempted unless a student has adequate resources from his or her own personal funds to pay for that term’s tuition, fees, and books.

Parents and students are usually required to provide documentation of tax forms, W-2’s, and assets, along with completion of a certification form collecting information on household size, number in college, and signatures. Any changes identified in originally reported FAFSA data will result in recalculation of aid eligibility.

Consortium Agreements

When a student contacts the Financial Aid Office indicating he/she will be attending another school as a transient student and is requesting assistance to pay for classes offered at another school, the Financial Aid Office may generate a Consortium Agreement with the school the student plans to attend IF the student meets eligibility criteria. Further information is available online at Capital’s site or in the Financial Aid Office. All students also must be sure to meet Residence Requirements as outlined in the Bulletin.

If a student meets Consortium Agreement criteria, the following information must be provided to the Financial Aid Office before processing can begin:

  1. Copy of an approved Transient Form from the Registrar’s Office, and
  2. Copy of the student’s registration from the school the student is planning to attend.

Students must make arrangements with the other school to pay billed expenses by their appropriate deadlines and must anticipate that aid will be delivered on a delayed basis due to additional processing required to complete the Consortium Agreement.

More information on all Financial aid programs administered by Capital can be found on Capital’s Web site at www.capital.edu/cc/finaid/index.shtml.

Non-Institutional

Grants Federal Pell Grant—A federal government grant to qualified students. Amounts are determined by the federal government and are subject to change.

Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG)—Eligibility for this federal grant is set forth by the U.S. Department of Education and requires students to be eligible for the federal Pell grant program, be enrolled full-time as a first or second year student, maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00 (for second year students only) and meet at least one of three established academic requirements from their high school coursework. Eligibility will be re-evaluated each academic year.

Federal SMART Grant—Eligibility for this grant is set forth by the U.S. Department of Education and requires students to be eligible for the federal Pell grant program, be enrolled full-time as a third or fourth year student, maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00 and pursue a major in a qualifying field of study. Eligibility will be re-evaluated each semester.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant—A SEOG is a federal grant given to Capital to award to students demonstrating Federal PELL eligibility and having the greatest financial need.

Loans

Federal Perkins Loan—This federal loan is administrated by Capital and is for students who demonstrate high need and who usually are Federal PELL Grant eligible. The loan is interest-free until nine months after the student ceases to be enrolled on at least a half-time basis, at which time the loan is repaid with 5 percent interest. Partial forgiveness of this loan may be possible via teaching in a “teacher shortage area” as defined by the U.S. Department of Education, as well as for full-time nurses. Amounts usually range from $1,000-$2,000. Once identified for this loan, a promissory note must be completed. Visit Capital’s site at www.capital.edu/847/ for additional information.

Federal Direct Stafford Loan—

Subsidized/Unsubsidized—These loans are designed to help students pay the cost of post-secondary education. Students utilize these loans to pay for school costs; however, do not start repayment until after graduation or after the student is no longer enrolled in school at least half-time. Students usually have 10 years to repay the loan. Eligibility for these loans is established by the federal government. All students must file the FAFSA for consideration. These loans are funded and serviced by the U.S. Department of Education. Eligible undergraduate students may borrow up to $5,500 per year as a freshman, $6,500 per year as a sophomore or up to $7,500 per year once 60 credit hours have been earned and up to a $31,500 aggregate total during undergraduate education (amounts include subsidized and unsubsidized funds). Independent students are eligible to borrow additional Federal Independent Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans of $4,000 per year with freshman or sophomore status and $5,000 per year if junior or senior status. Details are available on Capital’s site or in the Financial Aid Office.

Federal Direct PLUS Loan—This loan is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and available to parents (of dependent undergraduate students) who have no adverse credit history. Parents may borrow up to the cost of education minus any financial aid received. Repayment usually begins 30 days after the final disbursement, although payments can be deferred while student is enrolled at least half-time. Students whose parents are denied PLUS Loans may request consideration for a Federal Independent Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan with verification of a PLUS Denial. Details are available on Capital’s site or in the Financial Aid Office.

Nursing Student Loan—Nursing Student Loans have low interest rates (5%) with deferred payment of principal and interest until after graduation or discontinuation of enrollment of at least half-time. Nursing loans are limited to students enrolled in the School of Nursing and repayment will begin if the student leaves the nursing program. Once identified for this loan, a promissory note must be completed in Capital’s Financial Aid Office before the funds can be credited to the student’s account.

Resources for Books and Living Expenses

Delivery of Loan Proceeds—All students should make arrangements to have sufficient personal funds to cover non-billed costs such as books and living expenses each term until excess loan funds can be made available.

The federal government requires the institution to deliver loan proceeds to students’ accounts, or directly to the borrower when appropriate, in a timely manner upon receipt of loan checks or electronically transmitted loan funds. The regulation applies to Federal Direct Stafford Loans and Federal Direct PLUS Loans.

Capital will attempt to deliver all loan proceeds as soon as possible within federal guidelines. All students who are receiving funds in excess of institutional charges must request receipt of these funds by completing a Refund Request Form (available through the Student Accounts Office). This form cannot be completed any sooner than the first official day of each term.

Alternative Loan Programs—Many lending institutions have tailored educational loans for students. These programs usually carry higher interest payments and are based on parent/co-signer’s credit. In most cases, repayments can be deferred until graduation or termination from school. Details are available on Capital’s Web site or in the Financial Aid Office.

Tuition Management Program

Many families find it more convenient to spread educational expenses over equal monthly payments rather than in two larger payments billed at the beginning of each semester. For several years, Capital University has offered students and their families the option of the Tuition Management System (TMS) in which payments may be spread over as many as 10 months. A small annual fee is charged; however, there are no interest charges. TMS is flexible in that as cost and financial aid are finalized, families may contact TMS to increase or decrease their payment amount or withdraw. Monthly payments are made directly to TMS, either by check or automatic deduction from a checking account. Additional information is available from Capital’s Finance Office by calling 614-236-6123 or at http://www.afford.com/.

Employment Opportunities

Federal College Work Study—This federally funded program provides employment opportunities for students with the “greatest need.” Students work for the university and normally earn $500-$2,000 during the academic year. Earnings are paid directly to the student, by automatic deposit, twice per month, based on hours worked. Federal College Work Study earnings are not directly credited to a student’s account. Visit Capital’s site for detailed job information on all positions available at www.capital.edu/cc/finaid/finaidworkstudy.

Student Assistants—Academic departments and Residence Life employ students by the semester or for the entire academic year.

Additional Job Opportunities—The Career Developemnt Office provides a Job Internship web site: www.CrusaderCareers.com, which includes part-time, full-time, internship and summer job opportunities.

Hope and Lifetime Learning Tax Credits

In addition to federal grants, loans and work-study, families can take advantage of education tax credits: up to $1,650 for the HOPE tax credit for each student enrolled in the first two years of college or vocational school; and up to $2,200 for the Lifetime Learning tax credit per tax return for those beyond the first two years of study for students enrolled in vocational, college, graduate and professional schools, or adults taking classes part-time to improve or upgrade their job. These credits can be claimed by eligible taxpayers when they file their tax returns.

To take advantage of the Hope and Lifetime Learning tax credits, taxpayers must complete and submit IRS form 8863 with their federal tax return. For more information, call the IRS help line at 1-800-829-1040, read IRS publication 970 or visit the U.S. Treasury Department’s site at www.irs.gov.
