Pivot Point is approved by the United States Department of Education to offer the following Title IV programs for post-secondary education to eligible students:
The basis of determining a student’s financial need will be an analysis of the financial status of the student’s and/or the parents’ income. This analysis is accomplished by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) distributed by the U.S. Department of Education.
Title IV funding is available for the following programs:
For the following programs Title IV funding is not available:
A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Generally, Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a Bachelor’s or professional degree. Also, students have to demonstrate financial need. For many students, Pell Grants provide a foundation of financial aid to which other aid may be added.
A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need – that is, students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions (EFCs) – and gives priority to students who qualify for Federal Pell Grants. An FSEOG does not have to be repaid.
*Note: If you receive a Direct Subsidized Loan that is first disbursed between July 1, 2012, and July 1, 2014, you will be responsible for paying any interest that accrues during your grace period. If you choose not to pay the interest that accrues during your grace period, the interest will be added to your principal balance.
Students are encouraged to apply for one type or a combination of the types of financial aid available.
