These additional charges are calculated and published in May and may be accessed by calling the Nursing Program Coordinator at (615) 248-1225 or Office of Financial Aid at (615) 248-1242. Students enrolled in the Nursing Program who are at Belmont University for much of their day may request to be approved for the 10 Meal Plan which has a lower cost than the usual Full Meal Plan. Students should contact the Office of Student Development to make their request.

(2)

Senior citizens, 60 years of age or older, may audit up to 3 hours per semester tuition-free on space available basis with approval of instructor and dean of academic affairs. Does not apply to trips, special degree programs, or course fees. If credit desired, post baccalaureate rate applies.

(3)

Directed Study taken through the Post Baccalaureate Program is charged regular University tuition plus fee.

(4)

Damage in a residence hall for which responsibility cannot be determined will be charged on a pro rata basis to all residents during the semester. Person(s) known to be responsible for vandalism will be charged the full amount personally. Damage in a student's room is charged to the resident(s) of that room or to the person(s) known to have caused the damage.

Methods of Payment

The registration of a student signifies an agreement by the student and his or her parents to fulfill the related financial obligations for that semester and to comply with the payment policies established by the University and reflected in this Catalog. The University expects that every student will care for his or her account and believes that responsibility for handling the student account is part of the educational experience.

Expenses Are Due and Payable as Follows:

All expenses for the semester, after subtraction of financial aid awards, are due and payable before the beginning of classes for that semester. Students should come prepared to pay for their books and supplies at the time of registration.

Trevecca has established an agreement with the Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to administer our tuition payment plan. An interest free payment plan is available to enable students to more easily budget and afford their educational expenses. Students who are not prepared to pay their semester charges in full at the time of registration should contact the Accounting Office for information regarding the TMS tuition payment plan.

A one and one-half percent (1.5%) interest charge will be added at the end of each month to any unpaid balance which is at least thirty (30) days old. Each semester must be paid in full before registering for a new semester. Any student who has become delinquent through failure to make payment or proper financial arrangements will be subject to disenrollment until such matters are satisfactorily resolved with the Accounting Office. Should a student fail to pay his or her account in full or make acceptable payment arrangements with the Accounting Office, the account may be referred to an outside collection agency. If this becomes necessary, the student will be responsible for all costs of collection including reasonable attorney fees if applicable.

No degrees or certificates will be awarded and no transcript of credits will be issued until all financial obligations to the University are discharged in full. For immediate release, payment must be in the form of cash, credit card, money order, or cashier's check. Payment by personal check will necessitate a delay of ten working days before transcripts or diplomas will be released. All sales in the bookstore are to be cash, check, or credit card. The University reserves the right to make financial changes for any and all charges between times of publication of any catalogs or student handbooks.

Refund Policy

For students withdrawing from all classes or dropping a course, the following refund policy applies to tuition, fees, the meal plan, and housing. All refund periods are based on the actual weeks of classes.

After late registration, there will be no refund of Student Fees or Course Fees.

Within the first week of classes* — 100% refund of tuition, meals, housing

Within the second week of classes — 80% refund of tuition, meals, housing

Within the third week of classes — 60% refund of tuition, meals, housing

Within the fourth week of classes — 40% refund of tuition, meals, housing

Within the fifth week of classes — 20% refund of tuition, meals, housing

*The week begins with the first day of classes and ends seven days thereafter. For instance, if classes begin on Wednesday, 100% drop period will expire the following Tuesday evening.

After fifth week — no refund

No refund will be considered past the fifth week of classes in any semester.

Dates and prorating percentages for Summer are printed with the Summer schedule.

When sufficient space is available, a non-enrolled student may remain in University housing for one additional semester. Approval must be granted by the Office of Student Development and completed by making satisfactory financial arrangements with the Accounting Office. Permission will be contingent upon paying (1) full meal plan, and (2) full room cost. Full payment is due at the beginning of the semester.

Financial Aid

Trevecca Nazarene University offers a comprehensive program of financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants-in-aid, loans, and part-time employment. A student must be admitted to the University before an award will be made.

The financial aid program at Trevecca serves a twofold purpose: (1) to recognize overall academic scholarship and outstanding achievement in specific areas and (2) to assist students who find it difficult or impossible to attend college without financial help.

Student Aid is administered in conjunction with a nationally established philosophy which is based on the belief that parents are the primary resource for helping students to meet educational expenses. The student's assets also should be considered. Financial Aid becomes a bridge to fill the gap between the student's potential resources and University costs.

Any student starting Trevecca without a high school diploma or its equivalent is classified as a special student. Special students are not eligible for federal aid.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

To determine need the University utilizes the FAFSA. All students (first time filers or returning students filing the renewal) seeking financial assistance are required to file the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov designating Trevecca Nazarene University as one of the recipients. The following guidelines will be followed:

  1. The electronic ISIR (Institutional Student Information Record) which comes to the university as a result of the student's completion of the new or renewal FAFSA should be received by July 31.
  2. An ISIR received by July 31 allows time for Trevecca to make an award, for the student to accept the award and complete any loan application(s), for Trevecca to process the loan application(s) to the bank, and for the bank to transfer the loan funds to Trevecca by September 30. Most loan funds will be received from the lenders before the university begins to charge interest.
  3. If the student has no ISIR then he or she cannot register until the next semester unless he or she pays at least one-half of the tuition, fees, room and meal costs for the semester. The remaining balance could be funded by financial aid that would be available once the student files the FAFSA.

Deadlines

The FAFSA should be completed in the early spring for the following fall. Aid is awarded on a rolling basis, first come-first served, with March 1 serving as a priority date. Late filers have fewer chances of getting aid. Only one application is required to determine eligibility. For Tennessee residents, the FAFSA will also determine eligibility for a Tennessee Student Assistance Award and the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship. Applications should be filed in February or March, whenever possible. Awarding for first-time students begins in March. Returning students are awarded after the end of the spring semester.

A family's ability to contribute may fluctuate from year to year. Therefore, awards are made for one academic year only. Each applicant must apply annually. The processing of the free application for federal aid takes approximately four weeks at peak periods. The FAFSA can be completed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. All inquiries and requests should be directed to the Financial Aid Office.

Withdrawal from Classes

Any student who has received federal financial aid and is considering withdrawing from all classes should review the Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy. An example of this policy is available in the Financial Aid Office. Any student wishing to withdraw should begin the process in the Office of Student Development.

Federal Aid for Homeschoolers

Federal law states that, in lieu of an accredited high school diploma or GED, a student is eligible for federal financial aid if "the student has completed a secondary school education in a homeschool setting that is treated as a homeschool or a private school under state law." Homeschoolers are not required to produce a GED or take an ability to benefit test.

Satisfactory Progress for Financial Aid

All students who receive federal financial aid must make satisfactory progress academically. In order to assure the student makes progress both in terms of numbers of hours completed each semester and cumulative GPA, Trevecca will utilize the following satisfactory progress policy for the 2008-2009 school year:

Progress Standard

  1. Semester Progress: Students MUST, as a minimum, receive a satisfactory grade in the courses they attempt each semester as outlined below:

    Students who are working toward a degree by attending less than full-time must complete at least 20 hours per academic year.

    Satisfactory grades are A, B, C, D, S, or IP (for one semester only). Unsatisfactory grades are F, U, W, or I.

  2. Cumulative Progress: Students must, in addition to the above, meet the academic probation and suspension standards as outlined in the University Catalog. A student must complete his or her undergraduate degree within six years, as outlined in the following chart.

Academic work done at other institutions (if accepted by TNU towards their degree) will count in TNU's progress standard.

Due to the remedial work allowed by regulations, TNU reserves the right, in selected (and documented) instances, to determine that a student is making satisfactory progress even though his or her cumulative progress is not meeting published institutional standards.

Financial Aid Probation

  1. Students will be placed on financial aid probation if they fail to meet either standard as outlined above.
  2. Removal from probation — A student will be removed from financial aid probation if he or she is enrolled and satisfactorily completes the year as defined in 1 and 2 under progress standard.

Removal from Financial Aid

  1. A student on financial aid probation who fails to meet the standards of progress will be removed from financial aid.
  2. Any student who receives all F's, U's, W's, or I's, or any combination of these (no progress made whatsoever), in any semester will be removed from financial aid without a probation period.
  3. After four semesters, a student who fails to attain a 1.80 cumulative GPA will automatically lose his/her financial aid.

    NOTE: Removal from financial aid does not prevent a student from enrolling in Trevecca with his or her own finances, if he or she is eligible to re-enroll.

Appeals

Students who are removed from financial aid can appeal that decision to the Scholarship Committee. The appeal must be prepared in writing and be accompanied by appropriate supporting documents. Appeal letters should be sent to the director of financial aid.

Reasons that may be acceptable for the appeals are:

  1. Serious illness or accident on the part of the student. This will normally require a supporting statement from the doctor.
  2. Death or serious illness in the immediate family.
  3. Other extenuating circumstances may be acceptable and will be considered.

Eligibility To Have Financial Aid Reinstated

A student may be eligible to have his or her financial aid reinstated whenever he or she enrolls without financial aid and successfully completes enough hours to satisfy the cumulative progress standard.

Trevecca offers counseling and an advising system to assist students in their efforts to achieve educational goals. The Office of Financial Aid encourages all students to use these services to help make their progress toward a degree more successful.

NOTE: This Satisfactory Progress Standard for Financial Aid applies to ALL students whether or not they are receiving federal aid and must be taken into consideration at such time as a student begins to receive federal aid.

Verification

This is the process of checking the accuracy of the information supplied by students when they apply for federal student aid. Not all students are chosen for verification. Tax returns and/or additional information will be requested from those who are chosen by the U.S. Department of Education.

Scholarships

Trevecca Nazarene University annually offers scholarships to students in pursuit of their first academic degree who have exhibited outstanding scholastic achievement. Annual awards are distributed in two equal payments. A student may receive only one academic scholarship per semester. Institutional scholarships at Trevecca can be applied only to fees, tuition, room, meal plan, and books and can never generate a credit balance. Institutional scholarships require a minimum load of twelve hours each semester and will usually not be awarded beyond eight full-time semesters. No institutional scholarships will be given for external academic programming in which no tuition is paid to Trevecca.

All federal/state grants and private scholarships are credited first to the student's account to pay tuition costs. An exception would be any institutional/endowed scholarships specifically designated for tuition. All other institutional/endowed scholarships are to be applied to cover any remaining tuition, room, meal plan, and book expense. Institutional/endowed scholarships will be reduced if a credit remains on a student's account after the above listed expenses have been met with grants and scholarships. Students living in campus housing other than the dorms may use a credit balance resulting from grants and scholarships to cover rent, electricity, and the equivalent of a semester's meal charges in the cafeteria. Food expense for the summer will be based on a semester cost for the on-campus meal plan. Students living in non-campus housing will not be eligible to use a credit balance generated with institutional/endowed scholarships to cover living expenses.

It is the intent of the University to use institutional funds to cover direct expenses, so as to maximize the institution's scholarship funds and to be able to assist as many students as possible.

Academic Scholarships

Trevecca Nazarene University awards annual scholarships in recognition of a student's academic achievement prior to enrollment at TNU. Awards are determined at the time a freshman or transfer enters Trevecca and will establish the maximum academic award for that student during his/her time at the University. A student must qualify as an incoming freshman or transfer in order to receive an academic scholarship. The table below names the scholarships and amounts, and it lists the requirements for freshmen and transfers.

*Incoming first-time freshmen who score 32 and above on the ACT or 1400 and above on the SAT (Critical Reading + Math) will be eligible to compete for one of the two full-tuition scholarships available each year. Interested students should contact the Office of Admissions for further details regarding the J. O. McClurkan Academic Scholarship process.

The academic scholarship awarded to an incoming freshman or transfer student will be renewed in the fall semester of each academic year provided that the student maintains a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. These scholarships require that a student takes a minimum load of twelve hours each semester, and these scholarships will usually not be awarded beyond eight full-time semesters. Students who fail to maintain the required renewal GPA will forfeit their academic scholarship for the coming school year. Students who lose their original award level due to their GPA may regain their award level in future academic years if they raise their cumulative GPA to the required level.

Transfer students who are enrolling in the spring or fall semester in pursuit of their first undergraduate degree may be eligible for one of the academic scholarships. Prior to enrollment at TNU, the applicant's two previous semesters (omitting summer sessions) must be full-time. The transfer student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. The awards for transfer students are recommended by the Office of Admissions upon receipt of all final official transcripts.

To be considered for need-based or endowed scholarships, students should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid as early as possible. The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. (Trevecca's code is 003526)

The new academic scholarships have been named in honor of past administrators and faculty whose lives had a significant impact on the Trevecca story.

Prior to enrollment at TNU, the applicant's two previous semesters (omitting summer sessions) must be full time. Transfer students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher. These awards for transfers are recommended by the Office of Admissions upon receipt of all final official transcripts.
