Update on PHEAA Grants statusAs we enter a new academic year without an approved state budget, we are aware of the effects this delay will have on students at Bloomsburg University and other universities across the commonwealth, both public and private. The outcome of this impasse that may most affect Bloomsburg University students and their families is that the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) cannot currently provide grants for the 2015-16 academic year. If you are one of the 2,620 Bloomsburg University students due to receive a PHEAA state grant, this pending postponement of state grant awards may affect your student bill for the fall semester. I assure you, Bloomsburg University students will not be penalized or prevented from registering for the fall 2015 semester because of the budget impasse. PHEAA state grants previously awarded to students will be considered as credit toward the fall 2015 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. The university will not place late fees or holds on accounts due to the funds not being disbursed. Again, please be assured that this budget impasse will not adversely affect students’ ability to attend Bloomsburg University this fall. If you have questions or concerns about how this might affect you, please contact BU’s Financial Aid Office, 570-389-4279, or email Amanda Kishbaugh, interim director of Financial Aid, email@example.com.
— Sincerely, President David L. Soltz
