ATTENTION: All paper hard copy documentation received in the Financial Aid Office will be digitally scanned and will be shredded and will NOT be kept on file.
Academic Progress Appeal
Students who have been terminated from further financial aid for failure to meet Standards of Academic Progress for Financial Aid Recipients have the right to appeal. All appeals must be submitted in writing to the Financial Aid Office on the Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form.
Appeals for the Spring/Summer 2013 semester must be received no later than April 1, 2013. Appeals received after that time will be considered for the following semester unless the student is officially registered (tuition and fees are paid and the student is in attendance).
The Federal Government routinely selects some financial aid applications for a more in-depth review process called "Verification". In this process, Delta College is required to check the accuracy of one or more of the following items: income, household information, child support paid, SNAP benefits, high school completion, and identity & statement of educational purpose on a student's financial aid application prior to determining a financial aid award decision. NOTE: You may also view a brief tutorial that shows step-by-step instructions on how to use the IRS Data Retrieval and IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) and IRS Tax Return Availability.
To comply with this requirement you must select/print/complete and submit the Verification Worksheet to the Financial Aid Office. Be sure to select the Verification Worksheet which corresponds to the academic year for which you are requesting financial aid.
Student Loan Request Form
The Federal Direct Loan Program provides low-interest educational loans made by the U.S. Department of Education and obtained from the U.S. Treasury to the student or to the student’s parent. These loans are made, backed and serviced by the U.S. Department of Education.
NOTE: When filling out the loan application, you must fill out one loan application for the Fall & Winter Semesters and a separate loan application for the Spring-Summer Semester.
To request a loan, log in to MyDelta and complete the Federal Stafford Loan Application found in the Financial Aid section.
Alternative Educational Loan Request
Scholarship Awards are usually based on achievement or talent and are a form of financial aid that usually does not have to be paid back. Seek out campus resources: Delta College’s Financial Aid Office should always be the first place you go to ask about scholarships. But, professors and academic advisors may also know about grant opportunities available to students.
Educational Goal Change
This form is only for students who incorrectly reported that they were not seeking a Delta Degree or Certificate on their admissions application. If the student's intent is to pursue a Delta Degree or Certificate, complete and return this form to the Financial Aid Office for further financial aid consideration.
Parental Non-Participation Form
As a dependent student, you are required to provide parental information on the FASFA. Although you were able to submit your FASFA, your application is considered incomplete because no Expected Family Contribution (EFC) could be calculated by the Federal Government. To be considered for Federal Title IV financial aid, you must either update your FASFA by providing required parental information at www.fafsa.ed.gov or have the following form completed by your parent(s) and return the signed form to the Financial Aid Office along with the Federal Stafford Unsubsidized loan request. To request the loan, log in to MyDelta and complete the Federal Stafford Loan Application found in the Financial Aid section.
Unusual Enrollment History (UEH)
Beginning with the 2013-14 academic year, the U.S. Department of Education began evaluating the Pell Grant disbursement history for all students who completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in an effort to identify potential instances of fraud or abuse. As a result, some students who attended multiple colleges or universities during the past three award years have been selected for further review. This requires the Financial Aid Office to examine your enrollment history and determine your eligibility to receive future federal financial aid.
Students selected for the Unusual Enrollment History review process may be required to complete an Enrollment History Verification Form, develop an academic plan with the assistance of an academic advisor or counselor, and submit unofficial transcripts for all schools they attended during the past three award years. Students who failed to earn credit or clock hours at one or more of these schools during the time period indicated must also provide a written statement explaining why credit was unearned and supply supporting third party documentation. Following evaluation by the Financial Aid Office, students will receive a notification that their continued eligibility has been approved or denied.
After successfully completing one or more academic credits, a student may appeal the denial of continued eligibility decision by completing the Enrollment History Appeal Form.
