ENTRANCE COUNSELING POLICY

Title IV Financial Aid regulations require all recipients of Direct Loans to complete Direct Loan Entrance Counseling  . Students can obtain a copy of the Department of Education's Direct Loan Entrance Counseling Guide in the Financial Aid Office or they can complete Entrance Counseling online at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/counselingInstructions.action in about 30-45 minutes. All BBS students wishing to receive Direct Student Loans will be required to complete Entrance Counseling before their Loan Processing can begin.The Entrance Counseling session is designed to inform you of important information you should know before you borrow a loan. The information listed here is very similar to the information given in the Loan Entrance Counseling, but it can not be used as a substitute for actual Entrance Counseling.

Master Promissory Note

An MPN is a binding legal document that you must sign before receiving your first Direct Loan. The same MPN can be used to make one or more loans for one or more academic years (up to 10 years). Therefore, if you leave school and return, you may be able to receive additional loans without signing a new MPN. An MPN lists the terms and conditions under which you agree to repay the loan and explains your rights and responsibilities as a borrower. It’s important to read your MPN and keep it in a safe place because you’ll need to refer to it later when you begin repaying your loan or at other times when you need information about provisions of the

Loan Disbursements

In most cases, your school will disburse the proceeds of your Direct Loan by crediting it to your school account to pay tuition and fees, room and board, and other authorized charges. If the loan disbursement amount exceeds school charges, the remaining balance of the disbursement will be paid to you directly by check or other means. You will be notified in writing each time your school disburses a portion of your loan. The notification will include—

·        the expected date and amount of the loan disbursement, and

·        your right to cancel all or a portion of your Direct Loan, and

·        the procedures and time frame for notifying the school that you want to cancel all or a portion of your Direct Loan.

EXIT COUNSELING POLICY

Title IV Financial Aid regulations require all recipients of Direct Loans to complete Direct Loan Exit Counseling  before graduating or dropping below half time enrollment. Students can obtain a copy of the Department of Education's Direct Loan Counseling Guide in the Financial Aid Office or they can complete Exit Counseling online at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/counselingInstructions.action in about 30-45 minutes.

 Exit counseling is designed to give the borrower important information on their loan repayment and to ensure that your lender has your current information. The information listed here is very similar to the information given in the Loan Exit Counseling, but it can not be used as a substitute for actual Exit Counseling. Knowledgable staff in the Financial Aid office are available during office hours to answer any questions students may have before or after completing Exit Counseling.

Students that received Direct Loans and are eligible for graduation from BBS or want to officially withdraw from BBS are required to show proof of electronic completion of Loan Exit Counseling online at https://studentloans.gov/myDirectLoan/counselingInstructions.action or they will be required to read and complete the forms found in the Dept. of Ed. Exit Counseling Guide before being allowed to withdraw or graduate. The Exit Counseling Guide is available in the BBS Financial aid Office.

If a student who has received a Direct Loan unofficially withdraws from Buckner Barber School without any notification they are still required to complete Direct Loan Exit Counseling. BBS will mail Exit Counseling materials to their last known address within 30 days of the date it is determined they withdrew from BBS or failed to complete the required Exit Counseling .

REPAYMENT

Repayment is the process of satisfying your obligation to pay back the money you borrowed to help you in paying for your education. For subsidized and unsubsidized loans, repayment begins when your grace period ends. You repay your loan according to a repayment plan set up and agreed upon between you (the borrower) and your lender. The repayment plan you choose determines the amount you pay each month and the number of payments you must make. The maximum time period over which you must repay your federal student loan is the repayment period. The repayment period can range from 10 years to 30 years, depending on loan amount, loan type, and repayment plan. Your lender (the U.S. Department of Education) will give you a choice of standard, graduated, or income-sensitive repayment plans not earlier than six months before the date of the first scheduled loan payment. If you don’t choose a plan within 45 days of the lender’s offer, the lender will use the standard repayment plan. Even if you don’t choose a particular plan, you may reach an agreement with your lender to repay all of your loans under one repayment schedule. You can change your repayment plan annually.

Comparing Repayment Plans

There are several key differences between the repayment plans, but the most importantdifferences are your monthly payment and the total amount of interest that you’ll be repaying.

Standard Repayment Plan - You’ll usually pay your loan within ten years. You’ll be repaying the same amount of the loan each month, though your monthly payment may vary slightly from year to year because of interest-rate changes. • Graduated Repayment Plan - You’ll start with a lower monthly payment. Over time, your monthly payments will increase. While this plan may help you initially (when your starting salary is lower early in your career), keep in mind that you’ll pay more total interest over the life of the loan than you would with the Standard Repayment Plan.

• Income-Sensitive Repayment Plan - Your payments are adjusted annually based on your expected total monthly gross income. If your salary increases regularly, your monthly payments will increase, as they do under the Graduated Repayment Plan; however, if your salary is reduced, your payments will also be reduced.

Extended Repayment Plan - If you’re a new Stafford borrower (as of October 7, 1998)who has more than $30,000 in Direct Loans, you can choose the Extended Repayment Plan. Because you make payments over a longer period (not to exceed 25 years) your monthly payments will be lower; however, the total amount of interest you repay will be greater.

Grace period

When you leave school, you won’t have to begin repaying your loan right away. Direct Loans allow a six-month “grace period” that starts when you leave school or drop below half-time enrollment. If you have a subsidized Direct Loan, in most cases you won’t be charged interest while you’re in school or during the grace period. However, in some instances recipients of subsidized loans become responsible for paying the interest while still enrolled in school. (Unsubsidized Direct Loans accrue interest from the date of disbursement.)

Deferment Periods

These are periods during which you don’t have to make loan payments. The most common deferments are for students attending college (enrolled at least half-time), who are unemployed, or who have economic hardship. If you have a subsidized Direct Loan, the government pays the interest while the loan is in deferment. If you have an unsubsidized loan, you can either pay the interest as it continues to accrue on the loan, or postpone your interest payments during the deferment. (See the section titled “Capitalization.”) If you believe you may be eligible for one of these deferments, contact Direct Loan Servicer. (See contact information at the end of this document.)

Forbearance Periods

These periods are similar to the deferment periods, but often they are at the lender’s option. Also, you will always have to pay the interest that accumulates, even on a subsidized loan.

Capitalization

If interest is accumulating on your loan during a period when you’re not making loan payments, the lender will usually capitalize the interest, which means the interest is added to the loan principal. For instance, if you choose not to pay the interest on an unsubsidized Direct Loan while you’re in school, in forbearance, in deferment, or in a grace period, the interest will usually be capitalized. Because this added amount also begins accruing interest, capitalizing usually increases the overall amount to be repaid.

Default

Unfortunately, some students don’t repay their student loans, and the loans go into what is referred to as default. Default can have very serious consequences for the borrower. If you default on a loan, you will be reported to national credit bureaus (harming your credit rating and jeopardizing your ability to get a loan for a new car or home, etc.), your wages can be garnished, your income tax refund can be withheld, and you won’t be able to get student aid to go back to school.

Repay Your Loan—Don’t Default!

Defaulting on your loan is a serious matter and can have severe consequences for your future credit standing. Follow these simple steps to prevent defaulting on your loans:

• Keep all your loan paperwork. Keep your promissory note, repayment schedule, cancelled checks, just the same as if you were borrowing to buy a car or a house. If you sign your promissory note electronically, print a copy of the confirmation.

• Stay in touch with your lender. Be sure your lender always has your current address and phone number on file. When you complete the online Direct Loan Exit Counseling session, you not only obtain important information about repayment of your loan(s), you also ensure that your lender has your current information.

• Contact your lender if you’re having trouble making payments. If you find yourself in a financial bind and are having difficulty making your loan payments, the lender may be able to offer forbearance on the loan or make other arrangements to keep you from defaulting. Always, always contact your Direct Loan Servicer if you find it difficult or impossible to make your monthly payments:

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy

All students enrolled in Buckner Barber School must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress according to the requirements set forth in this policy. Federal regulations require all schools participating in Federal Financial Aid Programs monitor SAP periodically. In order to be considered  making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) a student must maintain a grade point average of at least 75% and be in attendance at least 67% of the scheduled hours for a course.  Students will be evaluated at the end of each payment period (at the midpoint and end of a course for courses less than 1 academic year).  A student must complete the required hours and attend the required number of weeks in order to complete a payment period and be evaluated. BBS defines an academic year as 900 clock hours/30 weeks. Students enrolled in the Class A Barber course will be evaluated after completion of the following:

1st Academic Year (900 hours/30 weeks)

·        1st Payment Period - 15 weeks and 450 hours

·        2nd Payment Period - 30 weeks and 900 hours

2nd Academic Year (

·        3rd Payment Period - 10 weeks(40 total weeks of attendance) and 1200 hours

·        4th Payment Period - 20 weeks (50 total weeks of attendance) and 1500 hours

Based on a 67% rate of attendance, the maximum time allowed for students to complete each course at satisfactory progress is 1.5 times the course length. All hours, including transfer hours are considered toward completing within 150% of the course length.

Determination of Progress Status

Students meeting the minimum requirements for attendance, required weeks and academics are considered to be making satisfactory progress until the next scheduled evaluation.  In order for a student to be considered making satisfactory progress as of course midpoint, the student must meet attendance, number of specified weeks and academic requirements on at least one evaluation by the midpoint of the course, or the midpoint of the academic year, whichever comes first. Students must maintain satisfactory progress to receive federal financial aid.

APPEAL PROCESS

Financial aid ineligibility can be appealed if you have suffered undue hardship. In order for an appeal to be considered, your circumstances must meet at least one of the criteria below. Please indicate below which situation(s) best applies to the hardship you experienced. In addition, ALL appeals must be submitted with supporting documentation.

If student prevails in the appeal process he will be placed on probation for subsequent pay period. At the end of one payment period on financial aid probation, the student must meet the institution's satisfactory academic progress standards or meet the requirements of the academic plan developed by the institution and the student to qualify for further Title IV program funds.

From the beginning of the enrollment period, progressing forward, student must be progressing at a pace that leads to completion within 150% of the published program length. Should a student’s progress at any point

demonstrate that the program can’t be completed within 150% of the program he/she becomes ineligible for Title IV. Under such circumstances the student become totally responsible for fees owed the school.

Student is subject to loss of eligibility for failure to maintain SAP

 

 

 

 

REINSTATEMENT OF AID

Is limited to the period under evaluation. Students making SAP by the conclusion of the Warning or Probation period will be removed from the warning/probation status and will regain eligibility for Title IV aid.

Interruption of Training–  LOA or Withdrawal

 

 

 

 

If enrollment is temporarily interrupted for a Leave of Absence (LOA), the student returns to school in the same progress status as prior to the leave of absence.

 

Days elapsed during an approved LOA will extend the student’s contract end date by the same number of days taken in the LOA and will not be included in the student's cumulative attendance percentage calculation.

 

Students who withdraw prior to completion of the course of study will re-enter at the same progress status as applicable at the time of withdrawal.

 

Students who fail to return from an LOA as scheduled will have an Unofficial Withdrawal on the date they were scheduled to return from the LOA.

Title IV Financial Aid will not be disbursed while a student is on a LOA
Course incompleteness, course repetition,  and non-credit remedial courses are not available at BBS.

Students who meet the minimum quantitative (attendance) and qualitative (academic) requirements are considered to be making satisfactory academic progress until the next scheduled evaluation.  Students  not  maintaining minimum SAP requirements will be subject to the following.

1) A student who does not meet  SAP requirements for a payment period will be placed on Financial Aid Warning. The student will be considered  still  in SAP until the next evaluation and is eligible to receive Financial aid for the subsequent payment period.

2) A student who is on Financial Aid warning and fails to meet SAP requirements for the next evaluation is not  in SAP and loses their Financial Aid eligibility. The student is allowed to appeal their ineligible status by submitting an appeal letter to the school Director that explains why the student did not meet  SAP requirements on the basis of: his/her injury or illness, the death of a relative, or other special circumstances. The appeal must explain why he/she failed to make satisfactory progress and what has changed in his/her situation that will allow them to make satisfactory progress at the next evaluation. If ,thru the appeal process; it is determined that the student should be able to meet the minimum SAP requirements by the end of the subsequent payment period  the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation, is considered to be in SAP and is eligible to receive Financial Aid for the subsequent payment period.

3) A student who is on Financial Aid Probation and fails to meet SAP requirements for the next evaluation is not  in SAP and loses their Financial Aid eligibility. The student will not be eligible to receive Financial Aid  until the student has met the minimum SAP requirements by increasing their attendance and/or GPA (cash payment may be required during this period).

This policy is established and maintained for all students in attendance at the school enrolled in a COE approved program and/or receiving Title IV funds.  This policy complies with the guidelines established by The Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the federal regulations established by the United States Department of Education.   All students receiving Title IV funding must be in Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to continue to receive funding!

B. If a student who begins a course of training is scheduled to run not more than 12 months withdraws from the course or is terminated from the course by the school.  The school may retain 100% tuition and fees paid by that student and is not obligated to refund any additional outstanding tuition. 

C. If the school cancels a course all monies shall be refunded to the student. 

D. If the school does not accept applicant a full refund of all moneys paid shall be refunded.    

If a student cancels his/her contract after three business days after signing the contract, but prior to entering classes, he/she shall be entitled to a refund of all moneys paid to the school less a registration or enrollment fee of (Barber course $150.00) (Instructor course $150.00). If the student withdraws or is terminated during the first 50 percent of the course, the school shall refund the following percentages, of any outstanding tuition.
