Partnership - Frequently Asked Questions
Withdraws are given to students after the one week Add/Drop period has passed. If a student is receiving financial aid please be aware:
- Students who withdraw may not be considered to be making satisfactory academic progress and their future financial aid may be cancelled.
- Depending on the date of withdraw, a student’s financial aid might be adjusted. This means there is a possibility that a student will need to return some of the federal funds that were previously awarded.
- Tuition will not adjusted when a student withdraws.
All students must be enrolled in at least six credits (half time). If a student is eligible for Federal Pell Grant it will be adjusted based on the number of credits for which the student is enrolled.
Late fees are 1.5% of a student’s total outstanding balance. The fee is added to the owing balance on the last business day of each month.
The Department of Education randomly selects at least 30% of FAFSA filers for a process called verification. If selected for verification, (which is indicated on the Student Aid Report), the student is required to submit a tax return transcript or a signed copy of a tax return, along with other documents to verify the information reported on the FAFSA is correct. An email will be sent to your Eagle account listing all the documents required to complete the process. A financial aid offer will not be confirmed until all documentation has been received and verified. If there are changes that need to be made, the FAFSA information will be corrected, which may affect the amount of aid a student is eligible to receive. A confirmed or revised Financial Aid Offer will be sent after the verification process is complete.
The program fee is a $1,300 fee that most Northwest Partnership Program sites charge. The program fee is charged per semester.
No. To be considered an independent student you must meet specific requirements as listed on the FAFSA.
If a student drops Session B before the end of Add/Drop week, their tuition charges and financial offer will be reassessed. After the adjustment, students could end up with an out of pocket cost.
If a student drops Session B after the Add/Drop week, they will receive a W for each withdrawn class. They will be responsible for the full tuition charges and will be required to pay any outstanding balance. Please reference the Withdraw questions above.
Unfortunately, we are unable to give an accurate estimate of the amount of financial aid for which a student is eligible until all required documents are received.
You will need to contact your Student Financial Services Counselor if you want to increase or decrease your loan.
