Students pursuing a Paralegal, Legal Nurse Consultant (LNC), or Life Care Planner (LCP) professional certificate may qualify for federal financial aid. To apply for federal financial aid, students will need to complete the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the FAFSA, the applicant will be required to enter the federal code for their institution. Capital University 's federal code is 003023. There is not a branch code associated with the law school campus. The six-digit code should be used for all programs offered through Capital University.
Students enrolled in Capital's certificate programs will only qualify for the Federal Stafford Loan program. Unfortunately, state and federal grants are no longer available to students working beyond a Bachelor's Degree. Once a student is accepted into their program and has filed their FAFSA, they will receive a packet from the Financial Aid Office detailing their Federal Stafford Loan eligibility. The packet will also provide instructions for how to apply for loans for which they qualify. The maximum amount of Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan eligibility that a student has while attending any of Capital’s certificate programs is $20,500 or the total Cost of Attendance, whichever is lower.
Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program
The William D. Ford Federal Stafford Loan Program provides low-interest loans to students to assist with educational expenses. The Stafford Loan Program is federally guaranteed, which means a borrower does not need to pass a credit check to obtain funding through this program. There are three (3) minimum criteria that a student must meet to receive the Stafford Loan:
If you meet these minimum criteria, you are eligible to borrow through the Stafford Loan Program. As of July 1, 2012 only unsubsidized loans are available to graduate students under the Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program.
As a student in one of Capital's certificate programs, you have the option of borrowing Federal Stafford Loans funds in excess of the amount needed for tuition. When students opt to do this, they receive a refund check from the university in the amount of the overage each term. Students may use this overage for books, living expenses, or any additional cost associated with their education.
The Financial Aid Office is here to assist students with questions along the way. Please feel free to contact us.
