FINANCIAL AID FAQ’S

 

Q1: How do I apply for financial aid?

A: The first step in applying for aid is filing the FAFSA. This must be completed EACH YEAR and the easiest way to file is online; you can apply at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Southeastern’s federal school code is 001521. The financial aid department does not know how much aid you are eligible to receive until you have been accepted and the FAFSA has been completed.

Q2: What awards are available to me as an Extension site student?

A: The most common financial aid awards are a federal Pell grant, Subsidized and Unsubsidized student loans, a Parent Plus loan, and for Florida residents, the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG). You will receive a Tentative Award Letter from Student Financial Services that outlines your expected financial aid for the year once you have been accepted and your FAFSA has processed successfully.

Q3: How many credit hours must I take in order to be eligible for financial aid?

A: You must be enrolled for at least six credit hours for federal student loans and at least 12 credit hours for state aid.

Q4: Where can I find out how much financial aid I’m receiving (how to access Net Partner)?

A: Students must log in to Net Partner to check their status and complete their financial aid award process. Visit www.seu.edu, scroll to the very bottom of the page, under the financial column click on View Your Award, then click on Check Your Status. If it’s your first time logging in, you’ll need to choose “First Time User,” and then use your student ID to set up your password. Otherwise, use your ID and password to sign in and explore your financial aid information. If you get a code “IA”, click on the forget password link.

Q5: Am I eligible for federal work-study as an Extension site student?

A: Unfortunately no, these positions are only available to Main Campus students.

Q6: How do I take out student loans?

A: To take out student loans, sign in at studentloans.gov with your student FAFSA PIN. Complete the student Entrance Counseling section, and then sign the Master Promissory Note. To take out parent loans, the parent would sign in at studentloans.gov with their FAFSA PIN, and request a PLUS loan. Once your credit is approved, complete the Plus Master Promissory Note to finish the application process.

Q7: What is the Student Information Sheet?

A: This form, which is required EACH YEAR for all Southeastern students, is found in Net Partner under the link “Apply Online” once you have logged in. Completing the Student Information Sheet determines your eligibility for many financial aid awards.
