Student Rights and Responsibilities for Financial Aid

It is the responsibility of each prospective aid applicant to become familiar with the policies, procedures, and deadlines for financial aid.

It is the right of each student to request and receive an explanation of how their financial aid award was determined.

It is the responsibility of each aid recipient to notify the Financial Aid Office of any additional awards received that were not included in the original financial aid package.

It is the right of the student to review his/her financial aid folders. Students do not, however, have access to parents’ financial information except with written permission.

It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office of any change in his/her status.

It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Registrar of an address change.

Please remember that full-time financial aid eligibility for any given semester is based upon enrollment in at least 12 credits (semester hours) that are degree-applicable. Degree-applicable credit is any credit that, according to College Catalog requirements at matriculation, fulfills the student’s primary major requirements, and related course work requirements, as well as sufficient elective courses to complete the minimum number of semester hours required for graduation. Students cannot receive financial aid for coursework that is not required for degree completion, and the college must comply with federal and state financial aid regulations.

When a student changes a major, it may affect the student’s financial aid eligibility.  Therefore, students contemplating changing their major should seek advice from their financial aid counselors.

It is also recommended that students meet periodically with their financial aid counselors to review their academic plans and the effect on financial aid eligibility. Additional information about these requirements is available on our website: Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to be aware of the regulations affecting financial aid eligibility, and it is the Financial Aid Office's responsibility to apply the rules that determine aid eligibility.

Questions concerning financial aid at the College may be addressed by writing or calling the Financial Aid Office 607-436-2532. Information contained herein is current and accurate as of the date of publication of this Catalog. With the passing of time, this information will become outdated so students should secure the most current information from the Financial Aid Office, 123 Netzer Administration Building.
