Beginning July 1, 2012, the Graduate Federal Direct Loan program will become entirely unsubsidized, which means the loan will begin to accrue interest as soon as the loan is disbursed.
The amount of loan funding WILL NOT be affected.
Major changes include:
Monitor SAP every semester
Transfer credits count towards percent completion rate
Required academic plan for some students
Required meeting with Financial Aid Counselor
Students under a consortium agreement will have a hold placed on their financial aid until their transcripts are received from the Host School. Students must request their transcripts be sent to UW after each term they are dual enrolled.
The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds you may receive over your lifetime is limited by a new federal law to be the equivalent of six years (12 full-time semesters) of Pell Grant funding or 600%. Find out more at http://studentaid.ed.gov/types/grants-scholarships/pell/calculate-eligibility.
Any Pell eligible student who withdraws from one or more classes and who changes their enrollment status (full-time to part-time, part-time to half-time, etc.) is subject to a reduction in their Pell grant if they did not begin enrollment in that class(es). Instructors will be contacted to validate that the student began enrollment.
