Fall Semester Completion
Dear Bloomsburg University students and family members:
As we complete the fall semester without an approved state budget, I want to assure you that we are continuing to monitor the situation and will act as necessary to ensure that the budget impasse does not negatively affect our students and their families. While we are hopeful that a state budget will be approved by the start of the spring 2016 semester, thus allowing the release of PHEAA funds, we are working on an alternate plan should the budget impasse continue.
In the event that the budget impasse continues beyond the start of the spring semester, we will disburse estimated PHEAA grants to student accounts during our normal financial aid disbursement period which is scheduled for January 28, 2016. PHEAA state grants previously awarded to students will be considered as credit toward the spring 2016 semester billing as it relates to both tuition and textbooks until PHEAA makes the final award determination. The remaining balance, however, must be paid through other grants, loans, family contributions and other sources of funding. Please note that because we may be disbursing estimated grants, there is a possibility that your grant may be reduced or cancelled due to an enrollment change or a PHEAA recalculation. Any reductions or cancellations of this nature could create an additional balance due to the university
If you have questions or concerns about how this might affect you, please contact BU’s Financial Aid Office at 570-389-4279 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
