These measures include the dissemination of information, referrals to community support agencies and the sponsoring of counseling and workshop programs within which individuals can explore the extent of their own drug and/or alcohol dependency.

For additional information, please contact the Student Life Office.

3/19/04 - Financial Aid section was updated. The original version follows:

Financial Aid

Eastern Arizona College has a comprehensive financial aid program to ensure, to the extent of available funding, that no student will be denied a college education because of lack of funds. EAC believes that primary responsibility for financing your education rests with you and your family. The ability of you and your family to provide that support is calculated through a federally approved needs analysis system.

A financial aid "package" often includes more than one type of aid. Eligibility requirements for the following programs are general in nature, and may change without notice. For more specific details please access the EAC Financial Aid World Wide Web site or contact the Financial Aid Office, Eastern Arizona College, Thatcher, AZ 85552-0769, (928) 428-8287; fax (928) 428-8462.

 

Grants

Grants are awards which do not have to be repaid. Included are Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), and for Arizona residents, the Leveraging Education Assistance Partnership (LEAP – formerly SSIG).

 

Employment

Federal College Work-Study Program (FWS): Federally funded part-time employment. Pay dates are twice monthly. Student employees are paid at least the federal minimum hourly rate.

Institutional Work-Study Program: College funded part-time employment awarded at specific request of faculty or staff. Pay procedures are similar to those under FWS above.

 

Terms and Conditions of Federal or Institutional Work Study Employment

Thatcher Campus

If you have been awarded Federal Work-Study:

  • Confirm award with Financial Aid Office.
  • Locate a job. See listing under Student Employment at the Financial Aid World Wide Web site, in the appendix of the Student Employment Handbook, or review postings on bulletin board by Financial Aid office.
  • If you are a first-time EAC employee, fill out an employee "Set-Up Packet" at the cashier’s counter in the Administration Building. Bring two forms of identification (social security card and driver’s license preferred).
  • Work your agreed schedule and keep a careful record of the dates and hours.
  • Turn in your time sheets to your supervisor before noon on the 15th and 30th of the month.
  • Complete the timesheet with your correct social security number and sign it!
  • Check calendar for pay dates. Typically it is the 7th and 22nd of the month. Take your identification and pick up your check at the cashier’s window.

Note! If you are applying your work-study earnings toward a college debt, you must come to the cashier’s counter and endorse your check so the funds can be transferred to reduce your outstanding bill.

 

Loans

EAC no longer participates in the Federal Student Loan Programs. Information on lenders of private educational loans is available from the Financial Aid Office staff.

 

Disbursements

Disbursement of grants and scholarships in excess of institutional charges will be by cash or check on the first day of the semester or as soon after as practical.

 

The Application Process

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be submitted as soon as possible after January 1 if you plan to enroll the following fall term. EAC's deadline for priority consideration is March 1. Since errors or incomplete forms cause delays it is important to complete the form early, carefully, and accurately. We encourage you to apply on the Internet at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.  Completing your FAFSA on the World Wide Web can speed up the FAFSA process.  Using the World Wide Web version can cut down on postal service delays.  It also does edit checks as you enter data which helps cut down on errors.  If there are difficulties or questions in filling out the form, please utilize online assistance or request assistance from a high school counselor or our Financial Aid Office.

Approximately 30% of all applications will be selected for a process called "verification." If the Department of Education or the College selects you for verification, you must prove that the information you reported is correct by submitting income tax forms and other documents. Therefore, you should save copies of all records and materials used in applying for aid.

 

Eligibility Determination

Before aid can be awarded your financial aid file must be complete, including all documents requested. Aid is then awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted. The amount of your award is determined by eligibility, availability of funds, and compliance with deadlines. You must reapply for aid each year.

Two basic steps are used in determining financial aid eligibility.

Step 1. Determination of costs (student budget). Financial Aid considers fees, tuition, room and board, books, transportation, and personal expenses. Several standard budgets are designed to reflect a modest but adequate standard of living. Budgets are revised only if you can document extraordinary costs over which you have no control. The following are samples of the standard budgets to be used for the academic year based on an average of 16 credits per semester.

Out-of-state fees are an additional $2,060 per semester or $4,120 per year.

Step 2. From the appropriate budget, subtract the expected family contribution as computed from information supplied on the application. This results in the maximum eligibility.

Financial aid cannot be awarded until you have declared a major and are enrolled in courses that will lead to a degree or certificate. If you have neither a high school diploma nor GED, you must take and pass the Ability to Benefit test and results must be in the Financial Aid Office before aid can be awarded.

 

Notification of Award

A notification of aid offered will be mailed to you. The Fiscal Control Office disburses aid and all debts to the College will be deducted from any amounts due you.

 

Satisfactory Academic Progress

To insure compliance with Federal regulations, EAC will award federal financial aid only to those students who are making satisfactory academic progress toward obtaining a degree or certificate. These procedures are designed to encourage you to successfully complete a degree or certificate in the appropriate amount of time. EAC has established the following by which to judge that progress. These standards should not be confused with the academic standards of the College, which may differ.

Standards: You are required to successfully complete at least the number of credits for which financial aid was received. For full-time students this means a minimum of 12 credit hours. Part-time students are evaluated on a proportional basis. Repeat courses are counted in the total number of credits for that semester. Audited credit hours are not included.

You are required to maintain at least a 1.75 cumulative grade point average (GPA) if you have attempted 1-30 semester hours and a 2.0 or better cumulative grade point average if you have attempted 31 or higher semester hours.

Ninety-six (96) credits, including transfer credits, will be considered the maximum time frame for completion of most Associate degree programs. Proportional amounts of time will be allocated to students in shorter programs.

Financial aid may cover a maximum of 30 credit hours of developmental classes. This includes classes below the 100 level and MAT 120 and ENG 100. However these credits will be included in the maximum total of attempted hours allowed.

Financial Aid Status: If you are a full-time student but completed fewer than the required credits or the required GPA, you may be placed on probation for the following semester. While on probation, you may continue to receive financial aid but must complete the number of probation credits with at least a 2.00 semester GPA.

If you achieve less than 1.00 GPA or complete no credits, you will not receive a probationary semester and future aid will be canceled.

Appeals: If you fail to meet the above standards and feel that there are significant extenuating circumstances you may submit an appeal. Appeals are to be made in writing to the Director of Financial Aid and should outline the specific problem and project your ability to complete the program.

Reestablishing Eligibility: If your aid is canceled due to lack of compliance with the above GPA standard, you can reestablish eligibility by completing credits at Eastern Arizona College without federal financial aid and by bringing the cumulative GPA up to 2.00. If your aid is canceled due to lack of compliance with the above earned credits standard, you can reestablish eligibility by completing credits at Eastern Arizona College or another college without federal financial aid. If these credits are taken at another school you must arrange to have an academic transcript sent from the other school. Only those credits which transfer will be included in the calculation. Transfer credits are not included when your GPA is calculated.  Only EAC credits affect your GPA.

Financial Aid will attempt to notify you of any deficiencies in a timely manner; however, it is your responsibility to be aware of the conditions of Satisfactory Academic Progress and to ensure compliance.

 

Student Rights

You have the right to know:

  • what programs are available at EAC.
  • the deadlines for submitting applications.
  • how your financial aid eligibility was determined.
  • the refund and repayment policies.
  • the satisfactory progress requirements.
  • the costs at EAC.

 

Student Responsibilities

You must:

  • complete all application materials accurately and on time.
  • provide correct information. Misreporting may be considered a criminal offense.
  • accept responsibility for all agreements that you sign.
  • notify the Financial Aid Office in writing of any changes in address, marital status, name, or drop in credits that takes you below the number of credits for which you are receiving aid.
  • complete the number of credit hours for which you are paid with at least a 2.00 GPA.

3/19/04 - The first paragraph under Student Code of Conduct was modified. The original version follows:

The College, under the authority vested by law in the Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, has the obligation to determine the standards of conduct appropriate for those who become members of its student body. These standards apply to all and will be administered by the President and/or his designee who may take disciplinary action deemed appropriate for the violation committed. Students, who have rights and privileges as citizens, must keep in mind that admission to the College is a privileged status and involves special additional obligations to the college community. It also presumes that students, as members of the academic community, understand that due regard for law and the rights of others are always involved in the realm of liberty.

3/19/04 - The following was added to the General College Regulations Regarding the Illegal Use of a Controlled Substance section: Note: Federal law allows notification of parents or guardians when there is a violation of this policy or a student exhibits a pattern of illegal substance use.

3/19/04 - Return of Title IV Federal Student Aid Policy section was revised. The original version follows:

Return of Title IV Federal Student Aid Policy

Federal Regulations regarding repayment of federal financial aid have changed the formula for calculating the amount of aid a student and school may retain when a student withdraws.  Students who withdraw from ALL classes prior to completing more than 60% of an enrollment term will have their eligibility for federal aid recalculated based on the percentage of the term completed, which shall be calculated as follows:

                Number of Days Completed by Student
                       Total Number of Days in Term

The total number of calendar days in a term excludes any scheduled breaks of more than five (5) days.

Unearned federal aid (the amount that must be returned to the appropriate program) will be returned in the following order:  Federal Pell Grant and then Federal Supplemental Grant (FSEOG).  Any wages earned under the Federal Work Study Program are exempt from this policy.

Please note that students are responsible for any balance owed to Eastern Arizona College as a result of the repayment of federal aid funds.

The student must repay or make satisfactory arrangements, with the Department of Education, to repay within 45 days of Eastern Arizona College’s notification of overpayment of federal funds (or lose Title IV eligibility).

We recommend that you try to complete at least one class, if possible, to avoid any financial hardship imposed by this new regulation.  However, if you do withdraw, it is important that you understand your obligations.

4/21/04 - Withdrawal from a Course section was revised. The original section follows. This section was previously updated 7/10/03.

Withdrawal from a Course

You are responsible for initiating and completing official withdrawals from classes from which you wish to withdraw through the Records and Registration Office. Withdrawal before the end of the registration period will result in the course not showing on your transcript. This is known as "Withdrawal Without Record." Withdrawal from a course after the close of registration will result in a grade of "W" - "Withdrawal With Record" - showing on your transcript. There is a different deadline for each type of course (semester-length, short-term, open entry/open exit and summer) that is taught at EAC. Please see the listing below for the exact deadlines. If you do not officially withdraw from a course, you may receive a failing grade. Instructors are authorized to withdraw you from courses for excessive unofficial absences, excessive tardiness, disruptive behavior, or inability to perform the required tasks.

Your failure to drop a class after registration, regardless of nonattendance or nonpayment, does not release you from the financial obligation incurred at the time of registration.  To ensure your registration is cancelled and the financial obligation to EAC reversed, you must withdraw from the course.  To completely remove your financial obligation for refundable fees, you must withdraw from the course during the open registration period for that course. If you incurred any nonrefundable fees, you will still be obligated to pay these fees. Instructors are not always obligated to withdraw you from their courses and you should not assume they will do so.

If you have received financial aid and withdraw from courses, please see the related link Return of Title IV Federal Student Aid Policy as to how this might affect you.

Semester-Length Courses - The last day for you or your instructor to initiate an official withdrawal from a semester-length course and to receive a “W” grade is two weeks prior to the last Friday before final exams.

Short-Term, Open Entry/Open Exit, and Summer Session Courses - The last day for you or your instructor to initiate an official withdrawal from a short-term, open entry/open exit or summer session course is the last day of the course.

4/21/04 - Course Overload section was revised. The original version follows: You must petition the Admissions and Academic Standards Appeals Committee for approval before you are allowed to register for an "overload" - more than 18 credit hours. Courses designated with the Activity/Personal Enrichment notation or those less than a semester in length will not count in the calculation of an overload.
