General Information on Financial Aid Programs at NGU

 

Student Eligibility and Method of Distribution of Student Aid

At North Greenville University, student aid is generally awarded on the basis of financial need. Simply defined, financial need is the difference between the student's cost of education (tuition, fees, room-board, and books) and the amount the student and family are expected to contribute toward meeting those costs. In order to determine eligibility for financial aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required. Financial aid forms are available at the university financial aid offices and high school counseling offices.

The Executive Council of North Greenville University passed the following policy:

  • Institutional aid plus all outside grants and scholarships (except for student loans) may not exceed actual school charges for tuition, room, board, fees and books.
  • The costs for university trips are the responsibility of the student.
  • Rent for university apartments, car registration fees, fines and supplies are not included.
  • The Financial Planning Office shall adjust a student's financial aid as needed to implement this policy.
  • Students who receive sufficient grants and scholarships that cover the cost of education will not receive a refund unless all of the grants and scholarships are non-institutional funds, and approved by the granting agencies.
  • For clarification, contact the Financial Aid Office.

NOTE: If you have more than enough financial aid to cover your charges, you may be able to obtain a book voucher from the Business Office to pay for your books.

 

General Disclosures:

 

  • A student must file a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive any federal aid. 
  • Federal workstudy will be paid once a month.  All other federal aid shall be disbursed once a semester. 
  • Students with a credit balance may use the credit to purchase books immediately.

  • The NGU Financial Aid Office will receive your FAFSA electronically within 48 hours.

Approved Work Study students are paid on the third Thursday of each month for time worked during the month prior. Standard positions are for 70 hours per semester at $7.25/hour (based on minimum wage effective 7/24/09). If all 70 hours are worked within the semester, you will earn $400 after taxes ($500 gross). Position hours may vary depending on departmental need and may be more or less.


Work Study students must complete a "Work Study Payroll Authorization Form" with the NGU Payroll Office if you would like your Work Study earnings to be applied to your NGU Student Account. Your Work Study earnings will be paid consistent with your authorization choice as long as you remain a Work Study.  
If you would like to change the way you receive your Work Study earnings, you must complete the "Work Study Payroll Authorization Reversal Form" with the NGU Payroll Office.

North Greenville University participates in the Federal E-Verify program and requires an I-9 to be completed upon hire. New hires are required to provide “Original” documents as listed on the Department of Homeland Security List of Acceptable Documents. A W-4 must be on file with the Payroll Office before you begin Work Study.
