Federal Financial Aid Option:
The Financial Aid Option requires that 50% of Tuition and Fees will be covered by the amount of Financial Aid awarded and accepted. You are required to have your Financial Aid process completed by accepting your award within 14 days prior to class/session start in order to use this option. Payment due dates will be 45 days from the start of the class or session. If there is still a balance due, full payment will be required at that time unless a payment plan or an alternative financing option is chosen.
What is Financial Aid?
Financial aid is monetary assistance intended to help you meet the expenses of going to college. "Aid" may be in the form of grants, loans, scholarships, employment, or a combination of these. Virtually all colleges and universities assume that the primary financial responsibility for higher education rests with the student and his or her parents (where applicable). That is why "financial aid" doesn't cover all of your expenses. The Financial Aid Office at Bellevue University wants to assist you in "bridging the gap" between the cost of attendance and the ability you and your family have to meet those costs.
Types of Financial Aid
Scholarships & Grants
Scholarships and Grants consist of institutional, state, federal or outside sources of funding that do not need to be repaid. This can include a merit scholarship, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Pell Grant, Nebraska Opportunity Grant, outside scholarships and others. Scholarships and grants are based on merit and/or financial need.
Loans are repayable awards, designed to help cover college costs. Students who complete a FAFSA application are eligible for the Federal Stafford. Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) and Graduate PLUS loans may also be available, these are based on credit worthiness.
Work study is an opportunity for employment for students with demonstrated financial need. In essence, it is the possibility for you to work up to 20 hours per week to earn money.
