FY07-FY11 Small Increases in State Aid Compared to Significant Increases in Federal and Institutional Aid

l





How do the campuses approach need-based aid? Distributed

  • All campuses use the federal definition of need, cost of education minus expected family contribution, to determine students that qualify for need-based aid.

  • All students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form in order to determine need.

  • Neediest students receive greater amounts of gift aid and a combination of need based and non-need based employment opportunities.

  • Students with low need or no need at all are usually only offered loans.

p


How do the campuses approach merit-based aid? Distributed

  • All campuses award merit-based scholarships to new students, freshmen and transfers, based on high school class rank and ACT or SAT scores or cumulative grade point average.

  • Other merit scholarships are available through academic departments or based on other endowment criteria.

Federal Financial Aid Update Graduation was Below the National Average for Three Campuses

  • The US Department of Education has announced a new income based student loan repayment plan. The plan is touted as a “pay as you earn” plan, where payments are based upon 10% of discretionary income with a maximum payment term of 20 years.

  • On August 2, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Budget Control Act of 2011 which ended subsidies on Stafford Loans for graduate and professional students starting July 1, 2012. Hardest hit will be the students in dental, medicine, law and doctoral programs. Students graduating from these programs will face a larger debt upon repayment.

Financial aid for part-time students vs Graduation was Below the National Average for Three Campuses

full-time students

  • Students must be enrolled at least half-time (six credit hours) to be eligible for most federal aid.

  • There is only one small state program (Marguerite Ross Barnett) that awards aid to part-time students.

  • Little or no institutional aid is awarded to part-time students.

  • Missouri S&T makes an exception if the student is enrolled less than full-time during their last semester.

dd


Summary Graduation was Below the National Average for Three Campuses

  • Enrollments at the University of Missouri continue to increase and financial aid trends indicate that students with financial need continue to receive access to the University.

  • Lower income undergraduates continue to

    • receive the largest grant aid awards, and

    • yet continue to take out the largest loans, and

    • have the largest amount of unmet financial need.

  • The state funded grant aid in 2013 is projected to further decrease because of the lack of backfill from MOHELA.

Summary continued
Summary (Continued) Graduation was Below the National Average for Three Campuses

  • The University has not been able to and is not planning to offset fully the estimated reduction in the state-funded aid; however, future tuition increases will set aside a portion of the revenue increase for need-based aid.

  • Many students are already borrowing at their maximum eligibility while others look for alternative sources of funding, e.g., parent loans (PLUS) or private loans or other sources of funding such as work study.
