The University believes it is essential to sustain and enhance a positive and meaningful in-person and, if necessary, remote academic, extracurricular and campus life environment for all students. The general fee helps to supplement the cost of ongoing academic and instructional support such as the MU Portal and Blackboard, IT Student Helpdesk (24-hour, 7-day a week service), Student Success Center, Insalaco Center for Career Development and the Bevevino Library. Costs associated with providing student media and publications, student government, Campus Ministry, shuttle and van service, laundry service and use of the Banks Student Center and Anderson Sports-Health Center are also supported by the fee.

Financial Assistance Program

For over 88 years, Misericordia University has helped students and parents afford a superior college education. Through its participation in federal and state financial aid programs, use of institutional resources and contributions by alumni and friends, the Student Financial Services Office tries to meet, as fully as possible, each student’s financial need.

The university is eligible to participate in a full range of financial aid programs through the U.S. Department of Education. Eligible students may qualify for aid through the Federal Pell Grant Program, and the Federal Student Loan Program, as well as federal campus-based programs including Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, and the Federal Work-study Program.

The university participates in the Nursing Loan program under the auspices of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Misericordia University is also designated as an eligible institution by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), allowing qualified students access to the Pennsylvania State Grant Program.

In general, the university offers three types of financial assistance:

  1. Scholarships/Grants: Gift aid given directly to full-time students based on financial need or some area of achievement, such as an outstanding academic record, evidence of leadership, etc. Students do not need to repay this type of award.
  2. Loans: Monies borrowed by students to meet educational expenses. Students and/or their families repay these loans after withdrawal or graduation. Interest is charged on loans. Interest charges vary with different loan programs.
  3. Work-study: Employment which allows full-time students to earn a portion of the money needed to meet educational expenses.

Application Procedures

All students who wish to be considered for financial assistance must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each award year (Pennsylvania Students-Pennsylvania State Grant Deadline is May 1st). First Year students are encouraged to submit the application as soon as possible after October 1 in order to expedite processing of financial aid notifications.

The university uses the information collected on the FAFSA form to determine eligibility for university administered need-based programs, including University Mission Awards, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Nursing Loans, and Work-study. Out-of-state students should check with their high school guidance office or state agency to determine eligibility for grant assistance from their home state.

Eligibility for academic scholarships are automatically evaluated by a scholarship committee with no special applications required. However, incoming first year students must submit a McAuley Application in order to be considered for a McAuley Award (described later in this section). Outside of the FAFSA form, the McAuley Application is the only formal aid application required by the university for a student applying for grant assistance.

Veterans: Misericordia University welcomes the opportunity to provide education to veterans of the armed services. The university is approved by the Veterans Administration for the education and training of veterans.

Veterans enrolling at the institution for the first time should contact their nearest VA regional office, call 1-888-442-4551 or apply online for educational benefits. This application should be filed six weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Students must also contact Misericorida’s Student Financial Services Office to initiate the certification process and to request a MU Veteran Benefits Request Form.  The MU Veteran Benefits Request Form must be completed and submitted every semester you wish to receive VA benefits.

Definition of an Academic Year

Financial aid is awarded for one academic year. Misericordia University defines its academic year as the period of at least 30 weeks of instructional time that begins on the first day of classes in the fall semester and ends on the last day of examinations in the spring semester. During this period, a full-time undergraduate student would be expected to complete a minimum of 24 credits.

Renewal of Aid

Academic scholarships are renewed annually provided the student maintains a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.75. McAuley Awards are renewed annually provided the student demonstrates satisfactory academic progress.

Need based financial aid is re-evaluated and renewed each year providing the student:

  • Submits a FAFSA form by May 1
  • Demonstrates financial need
  • Demonstrates satisfactory academic progress

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

To receive or continue to receive federal, state, or university financial aid, all students must meet the following progress requirements:

  1. Minimum grade point average required at the end of the academic year:
    First-year undergraduates 1.75
    All other undergraduates 2.00
    Graduate Level 3.00

Academic scholarship requirements are more stringent. Recipients of these awards must refer to the scholarship notification letter for grade point requirements.

  1. Pace of Completion:

This measurement ensures that a student is completing their program(s) within the maximum time frame allowed. PACE is calculated by dividing total credits earned by total credits attempted and includes accepted transfer and advanced standing credits in both the numerator and denominator. 

  • First and Second Academic Year pace of completion must be a minimum of 65%.
  • Subsequent Academic Years pace of completion must be a minimum of 70%.

Monitoring Satisfactory Academic Progress

Both PACE and GPA requirements are measured at the end of each spring semester. Students not meeting PACE and/or the minimum GPA will have their financial aid suspended until they earn the sufficient number of credits and/or meet the minimum GPA requirements, or have successfully appealed for an exception to the requirements.

  1. Maximum Time Frame:

A student may not exceed a maximum number of attempted credits in any program(s), even if aid was not received during all periods of enrollment.The maximum number of credits is 150% of a student’s program(s) required credits. Once a student reaches the maximum amount of credits attempted as specified by the program(s), the student will be ineligible to receive further Title IV aid.

Any deficiencies in academic progress must be made up at the student’s expense by successfully completing courses at Misericordia University or another accredited institution. Permission to take credits at another institution requires the permission of the registrar. Once the deficiency has been remedied, students must request that aid be reinstated for subsequent periods of enrollment. In the case of enrollment at another institution, the financial aid office will take into consideration the number of credits completed and the grades obtained. This financial aid policy differs from the institutional policy that accepts credits in transfer only, not grades obtained.

For purposes of financial aid, satisfactory progress is defined using the following classifications for undergraduate students:

  First year Those who have earned between 0-29.9 credits
     
  Sophomores Those who have earned between 30-59.9 credits
     
  Juniors Those who have earned between 60-89.9 credits
     
  Seniors Those who have earned between 90-119.9 credits
     
  Fifth year Those who have earned 120 credits or above
     
  Second degree Students who have earned a baccalaureate degree and are pursuing a second baccalaureate degree
     
  Full-time Students carrying a minimum of twelve credits in a regular semester format
     
  Part-time Students carrying less than twelve credits in a regular semester format. Students enrolled in accelerated or weekend classes may carry twelve credits, but are still considered part-time.
     
  Three-quarter-time Students carrying 9-11.9 credits
     
  Half-time Students carrying 6-8.9 credits
     
  Less than half-time Students carrying .5-5.9 credits
     
  Non-matriculated Students who have not been formally accepted to a degree or certificate program
     
  Matriculated Students who have been formally accepted into a degree or certificate program
     
  Certificate Students following a sequence of courses leading to an educational certificate

Right to Appeal

If a student feels that satisfactory progress was impossible to attain because of extenuating circumstances, i.e. death in the family, extended illness, etc., the student may appeal. The appeal must explain the extenuating circumstance(s) that led to your academic problems and explain what has changed in your situation that will allow you to make satisfactory progress at the next evaluation. The appeal must be in writing, include supporting documentation and be sent to the Student Financial Services Office. The appeal will be reviewed and a decision will be made within 10 days. The decision will be sent via your Misericordia e-mail.

Additional Requirements and Rights

Students may take coursework outside the academic requirements for their degree; however, he/she should be aware that Title IV financial aid, PHEAA grants, and Veterans Administration aid may not be used to cover the costs associated with such courses. The Student Financial Services Office should be consulted on the impact of taking coursework outside the degree requirements prior to finalizing his/her registration.

A student applying for aid must supply all required information as described above. The student’s enrollment status is then verified, and the student financial services office will determine the student’s financial aid in accordance with school policy. The student will then receive an award letter.

Aid from outside sources must be reported to the student financial services office. Such outside aid may result in a change in eligibility status.

Aid will vary according to enrollment status (full or part-time) and housing status (resident, off-campus, or commuter). Students must inform the student financial services office of any status changes after their aid is packaged. Students may request an appointment with the student financial services office to review the information that determines their aid for the year, and the amount of their financial aid package.

Students have the right to request that their aid be re-evaluated if conditions arise which change their ability to meet the expenses of their education.

Sources of financial aid are described below. More information may be obtained from the Student Financial Services Office at 570-674-6222.

Students must have achieved a 3.25 high school GPA and maintain a 3.25 for renewal. Recipients must serve as a full-time teacher for at least four academic years at a high-need school within eight years after completing the course of study; otherwise, obligation will be treated as a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. The annual award is up to $3,752, with aggregates not to exceed $16,000 for undergraduates.

Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program

The U.S. Department of Education’s federal student loan program is the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program. Under this program, the U.S. Department of Education is the lender. The Direct Loan allows students to borrow loans in their own name and requires no credit evaluation. A FAFSA is required for all loan applicants.

Direct Loans have a fixed interest rate and can be either interest-subsidized (federal government makes in-school and grace period interest payments) or unsubsidized (student makes interest payments during in-school and grace periods or has interest added onto the amount borrowed and repaid with principal after grace period). Eligibility for interest subsidy is based on demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA. Payment of principal is deferred while the student is enrolled. Repayment of principal begins six months after the student graduates, withdraws, or enrolls for fewer than six credits.

Dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to $31,000 in Stafford Loan funds. Independent undergraduate students may borrow up to $57,500. Graduate students may borrow up to $138,500. Also, effective July 1, 2013, first-time borrower’s eligibility for the Direct Subsidized Loans will be limited to a period not to exceed 150 percent of the length of the borrower’s educational program.

Students will be required to complete an electronic Federal Direct Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling.

Federal Direct Loan (Subsidized)

This loan program allows financially eligible full- and half-time students to borrow money to help meet educational expenses. The borrowing limits for subsidized loans are as follows:

  Year 1 0-29.9 credits earned $3,500
  Year 2 30-59.9 credits earned $4,500
  Year 3 60-89.9 credits earned $5,500
  Year 4 90-119.9 credits earned $5,500
  Year 5 120+ credits earned $5,500

The exact amount of loan eligibility is determined by the following formula: educational costs minus financial aid, minus expected family contribution as calculated from the FAFSA.

Federal Direct Loan (Unsubsidized)

This loan program provides assistance to dependent students in addition to the Subsidized Stafford up to the loan limits described below.

  Years 1 through 5 $2,000

This loan program also provides assistance to independent undergraduates and graduate students up to the following limits:

  Undergraduate years 1 and 2 $6,000
  Undergraduate years 3 through 5 $7,000
  Graduate $20,500

Federal Direct PLUS Loan

The Direct PLUS Loan is available to credit-worthy parents of dependent undergraduate students and have fixed interest rates. Parents may borrow the difference between the student’s total cost of attendance and all other aid the student is receiving. PLUS Loans should be applied for the entire academic year. The U.S. Department of Education is the lender.

For parent borrowers, interest will accrue after the first disbursement and repayment of interest and principal begins 60 days after the second disbursement. Parents can apply for a deferment to delay making payments. While you are in deferment, you will receive interest statements. Paying the interest as it accrues will save you money over the repayment term of the loan.

Parents can apply for the Direct PLUS Loan online beginning in May for the academic year. Parents will be required to complete a PLUS Loan application with the requested loan amount and successfully complete the credit check. Credit checks are good for 180 days. Once approved, an electronic Federal Direct PLUS Loan Master Promissory Note (PLUS MPN) will need to be completed

Nursing Loan

This program makes low interest funds available to Nursing majors who demonstrate financial need. Students who properly complete the aid application process as previously described will be automatically evaluated for eligibility for Nursing Loan assistance. If eligible, the student will receive notification from the Student Financial Services Office. The current interest rate is 5% with repayment deferred until nine months after the student graduates, withdraws, or drops below six credits. Additional provisions for deferment of repayment are available from the Student Financial Services Office.

Federal Work-study

Funded by the federal government, this program provides par-time employment for eligible students during the academic year and the summer. Jobs are available on campus and in the local community. Students must demonstrate financial need to be eligible. Students seeking Federal work-study employment must file a FAFSA.

 

Pennsylvania State Financial Aid Programs

Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) Grant

The PA Grant is a Pennsylvania State Grant. All Pennsylvania residents are expected to apply for the PHEAA Grant. Application is made by completing the FAFSA/ Eligibility and grant amounts are determined by the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). The deadline for application is May 1 prior to the start of the academic year for which aid is requested.

Partnerships for Access to Higher Education (PATH) Grant Program

Students are nominated by a participating PATH organization and must be PA State Grant recipients the year for which PATH aid is requested. Students must demonstrate financial need and be enrolled in a Pennsylvania postsecondary institution.

Ready to Succeed Scholarship Program (RTSS)

The program is administered by PHEAA in close cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The student must meet all other Pennsylvania State Grant eligibility requirements to qualify for RTSS. This includes the submission of a FAFSA and Pennsylvania State Grant Form. The student must have completed one academic year defined as having earned 24 semester credits or the equivalent by the time that the school checks academic progress of the PA State Grant. Students must attain a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.25 and have a family income that does not exceed $110,000.

College Work-study

The university maintains this work-study program through its own funding. It assists students who are not eligible to participate in the federal program, but who need to earn part of their university expenses through employment.

Part-time Jobs

Some part-time employment is available in the community for students. Students who are interested in part-time employment opportunities should inquire at the Insalaco Center for Career Development.

Refunds of Overpayments

Refunds of credit balances on student accounts caused by overpayment (either from financial aid or personal transaction) will be processed in the Student Financial Services Office within 10 days from the date on which the credit balance occurs. The 10 days gives the university time to verify the amount of refund, to check on any other charges, and to confer with the Director of Student Financial Services.

Student refund requests must be approved by the Director of Student Financial Services. Students are advised to begin the academic year with sufficient funds to pay for books and living expenses until refund checks are issued.

Tuition Payment Options

Payment Policy for Part-time Students

At the time of registration, a part-time student must make arrangements for paying tuition and fees. The student may either pay for the course in full, have financial aid to cover the amount due, or participate in either the deferred payment plan or the tuition reimbursement payment plan. The details of the two payment plans are discussed below.

Tuition Reimbursement Payment Plan for Part-time Students

Students who receive tuition benefits from their employer may be eligible to participate in Misericordia University’s Tuition Reimbursement Payment Plan. Generally, this payment plan permits tuition and fees to be paid up to 30 days after the issuance of grades instead of at the time of registration for the course. The requirements of the plan are as follows:

  • Only part-time students are eligible.
  • A tuition reimbursement letter from the employer must be on file prior to registration and must be updated annually. The letter must state the terms of the benefit.
  • Students must keep the original invoice and final grades for employer verification. Duplicate invoices and grade sheets will not be issued.
  • It is the responsibility of the student, not the employer, to ensure that payment is made within the 30 day period. Students who fail to make payment within the 30 day grace period may be removed from the tuition reimbursement payment plan.
  • The 30 day grace period does not apply to graduating students. Tuition and fees must be paid prior to graduation.
  • Students who are receiving only partial tuition benefits must make arrangements to pay the costs that are not covered by the employer at the time of registration.

Deferred Payment Plan for Part-time Students

Misericordia University provides an option for students or parents to pay tuition, fees and other charges on a deferred payment plan. The plan permits educational costs to be spread over a period of time. The requirements of the plan are as follows:

  • Only part-time students are eligible.
  • A down payment of 20 percent of the total term/semester charges is required before the start of classes.
  • Deferments are limited to one term/semester; the unpaid balance must be paid before final examinations for that term/semester. Failure to pay charges in full before final exams may result in loss of credit for the term/semester.
  • Students who fail to meet their deferred payment obligations will be dropped from the plan.

Tuition Payment Plan for Full-time Students

Full-time time students have the option to schedule monthly payments through Cash Net. There is an annual fee to cover the processing of payments. Students must be enrolled in the installment plan prior to the start of the academic year. The payment plan begins in the month of June prior to the start of the fall semester. Enroll at https://commerce.cashnet.com/cashnet/MISERICORDIAPAY or call 1-877-821-0625​.

Credit Card Payments

Misericordia University accepts VISA, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards for payment of tuition and fees. A 2.5% processing fee applies.

Financial Aid Policy - Return of Title IV funds

The Student Financial Services Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term. The Federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations.

Recalculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following federal return of Title IV funds formula:

% of payment period or                     # Days Completed up to the withdrawal date
Term completed                 =                 Total days in the payment period or term

(Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of earned aid.

Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula: Aid to be returned = 100% of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned aid multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term. If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a portion of the funds and the student would be required to return a portion of the funds. When Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debit balance to the university. If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the university would owe the student a post-withdrawal disbursement which must be paid within 120 days of the student’s withdrawal. The university must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible no later than 30 days after the date of the determination of the date of the student’s withdrawal.

Refunds are allocated in the following order:

  • Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans
  • Subsidized Federal Direct Loans
  • Federal Perkins Loans
  • Federal Direct Parent (PLUS) Loans
  • Federal Pell Grants for which a return of funds is required
  • Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants for which a return of funds is required
  • Other assistance under this Title for which a return of funds is required (e.g., LEAP)

There will be no adjustment to federal or institutional aid after the completion of at least 60 percent of the semester. The calculation of Title IV refunds will be computed by the Student Financial Services Office.

Students who receive a refund of financial aid prior to withdrawing may owe a repayment of federal financial aid received. Students who fail to return federal funds as required will be ineligible for aid until repayment is made.

Administrative Regulation and Payment of Tuition and Fees

Misericordia University students are expected to pay their bills in a timely manner. Interest is charged on unpaid balances. The student financial services office personnel assist students in meeting their financial obligations and will discuss reasonable payment schedules in extraordinary cases. In order to assure the collection of money due the university, students with unpaid balances for tuition, fees, bookstore charges, library fines, parking fines, or any other Misericordia University approved fee or fine will be denied the following privileges or services:

  1. Class registration.
  2. Participation in commencement ceremonies and the awarding of diplomas. Also, seniors may be denied final exams.
  3. Transcript issue.
  4. Residence hall reservation privileges.

This policy is waived for students who receive tuition benefits, rehabilitation benefits or veterans’ education benefits.
