FAQ's

What types of financial assistance are available?

Loans: Money borrowed to cover the cost of education that must be repaid with interest.

  • Federal Stafford Loans: There are two types; Unsubsidized and the Graduate Plus Loan. Payment on the Stafford loan begins six months after the student has graduated, withdrawn from school, or attends less than halftime. Interest accrues on an Unsubsidized loan from the date of the first disbursement. The total amount of unsubsidized Stafford Loans available for the Doctor of Pharmacy program is $33,000.00 per academic year, not to exceed the cost of attendance.
  • Graduate Professional PLUS Loans: Professional degree students are now eligible to borrow under the Graduate/Professional PLUS loan program up to their cost of attendance minus other estimated financial assistance. Approval of this loan is subject to a credit evaluation and repayment must begin upon graduation, withdrawal from school, or less than half time enrollment.
  • Alternative Educational Loans: These are loans made to students, whose credit is approved or who has a credit-approved co-signor. Interest accrues on these loans from the date of the first disbursement. The interest rate is variable and based upon the PRIME RATE + a percentage determined by the student’s and co-signor’s combined credit rating. Payment on the Alternative loan may begin six months after the student has graduated, withdrawn from school, or attends less than halftime.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Gift assistance that doesn’t have to be repaid. Scholarship searches are on the Internet or you can visit your public library for lists and requirements of scholarships that are available. Additional scholarships specific to the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences will be available from sources such as CVS, Meijer, Target, etc.

MILITARY BENEFITS: Financial assistance available to individuals who have performed military service or are the dependent of a veteran 100% disabled or deceased due to military service.

Who provides financial aid?

The Federal government provides loans. Scholarships are available through many organizations, clubs, businesses, and institutions. You and your family have the primary responsibility for meeting educational expenses to the best of your ability.

What does financial aid cover?

Financial assistance is available to cover the cost of education, which may include:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Books
  • Room and Board
  • Other educational related costs

Who coordinates the financial aid process?

Sullivan’s Financial Planning Office develops your financial package according to program guidelines and regulations. This package is usually a combination of grants, loans, cash payments, and/or company reimbursement.

Why will only the first year be included?

You should re-apply each year you plan to attend. Factors regulating financial assistance change; because you’re not eligible for certain funds in one award year does not mean you would not be eligible the next year.

How is my "need" determined?

A calculation called need analysis is used to determine if you have need for aid and, if so, how much need. Financial need is usually the difference between your cost of education and the amount of money your family is expected to contribute. The formula is:

  • Total cost of Education (varies school to school) – Expected Family Contribution (determined congressional methodology) = Financial Need

How is my expected family contribution determined?

The financial information exported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is used by the Dept of Education to determine, on a fair and equitable basis, what you and your family should reasonably be expected to contribute toward your educational costs. The standard formula evaluates your family’s income from the previous two years, current assets, and provides allowances for expenses. The result is your expected family contribution (EFC).

My company offers reimbursement, how is this handled?

A copy of your company’s Tuition Reimbursement policy should be brought to the school. If payment is not made until your grades are received, we offer a deferred tuition option. For additional information, please consult your admissions officer.
