More Public Colleges Start Tuition-Free Programs

The constant narrative of the high cost of college in the news and the idea of free higher education has driven some schools to offer tuition-free programs to low-income students.
Most of these tuition-free programs, usually referred to as “promise” programs, cover tuition and fees – but generally not the full cost of attendance.
The majority of these programs are implemented at community colleges, but there are a handful of four-year institutions across the U.S. that offer these tuition-free or guarantee programs to financially needy students.
“These programs are becoming increasingly popular. A lot of it depends nationally on what the state contributes,” says Robert McMaster, vice provost and dean of undergraduate education at the University of Minnesota, which has offered a promise scholarship for nearly 10 years.
Policy analysts say tuition-free programs exist in patches across the U.S. either at the state, local or institutional level.
“It’s really a roll of the dice to where the student lives and what institutions they get into,” says Iris Palmer, senior policy analyst for education at New America, a think tank based in the District of Columbia. “For almost all these programs, you have to be a resident of the state.”
Some of the four-year public universities that offer a promise or tuition-free guarantee program to low-income students include Arizona State University, West Texas A&M University, Purdue University—West Lafayette, the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill and all campuses for the University of Minnesota and the University of Nebraska.
Many of these programs also require the student to be Pell-Grant-eligible, a federal grant for undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need. The maximum Pell Grant award is $5,815 for the 2016-2017 school year.
“Pell Grants and state grants will cover a large share of the tuition costs, therefore allowing institutions to make this guarantee because the remaining amount isn’t too expensive,” says Thomas Harnisch, director of state relations and policy analyst at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, on the remaining portion that is covered by institutional funds through “last dollar programs.”
Higher education experts say it’s easy to brand these programs for low-income students, but the details of each program varies.
For prospective students and families interested in a tuition-free education at a four-year public college, here are a few facts about these programs.
• There are more of these programs coming for fall 2017. Palmer from New America says the movement for expanding tuition-free programs has “devolved down to the state, local and institutional level.”
This February, Florida International University and the University of New Hampshire announced that they will offer tuition-free programs to needy students who are entering their first year of college this fall. Both programs require these students to be in-state residents.
• Pell Grant eligibility is often used to determine if a student qualifies. Many tuition-free programs use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, to determine eligibility. The federal form establishes whether a student qualifies for a Pell Grant and the estimated family contribution, a figure as to what the student and his or her family can pay toward education.
Each school’s terms for eligibility vary. While the UNH’s Granite Guarantee program offers incoming freshmen tuition-free education if they qualify for any Pell Grant amount, the FIU Golden Promise scholarship only awards this benefit to Pell Grant recipients who have a “zero” estimated family contribution.
At FIU, only half of Pell grant recipients are zero EFC, says Francisco Valines, director of financial aid at FIU.
“We’re expecting about 1,200 for fall 2017,” says Valines, as the program only applies to incoming freshmen.
In contrast, a UNH spokesperson says that the school’s tuition guarantee will probably support nearly 300 freshmen for the 2017-2018 year.
• Most of these programs only cover tuition and fees, not the full cost of attendance. There are only two four-year public institutions – UNC—Chapel Hill and the University of Virginia – that report meeting full financial need, according to data submitted to U.S. News in an annual survey.
So these other programs at four-year public colleges only cover tuition and fees, and in some cases, a few hundred or thousand dollars over the amount.
“We’re exceeding full tuition and fees for need by $2,000,” says McMaster from the University of Minnesota on covering in-state Pell Grant students with a zero EFC under its U Promise program. “We’re short on the full cost of attendance.”
Harnisch from AASCU says these programs don’t cover living expenses, which can sometimes be more than tuition and fees.
But he says: “Having the institution as the messenger for these programs is important because the students will be receiving their tuition bill from them.”

Avoid 3 Mistakes When Applying for Summer Financial Aid

As winter melts into spring, some college students are already looking further ahead – toward summer. That’s because if you plan to enroll in a summer session, now is the time to prepare. And that means studying up on your school’s financial aid rules.
You may be an expert in English, calculus and other academic subjects, but funding an education can be an advanced-level topic all by itself – one that stumps many students. If you want to make the grade and do some successful summer studying, avoid making the following financial aid and student loan mistakes.
1. Filing the wrong FAFSA: The first step to getting financial aid for college – no matter which session you plan to enroll in – is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. If you’re currently in college, you likely not only know this, but you’ve also probably already completed this year’s FAFSA.
But this year’s FAFSA may not be the one you actually use for summer financial aid. Each FAFSA lasts an entire academic year, spanning from July 1 through the end of the next June.
We’re currently in the 2016-2017 award year. July 1 marks the beginning of the 2017-2018 academic year. Since summer classes would likely occur during or after July, it makes sense that you’d complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA to receive aid for those classes. That may not be the case, though.
Colleges can divide their academic year differently from the federal student aid definition. Be sure to contact your school’s financial aid office to find out which FAFSA to complete for summer aid – and when the school’s priority filing deadline for summer session is. Finding that out will help you maximize the amount of federal and institutional aid you’re able to receive – including student loans.
2. Not knowing the rules: While asking the financial aid office about these FAFSA dates, check and see what additional rules they have for receiving summer financial aid. Schools may require you to submit other applications or documentation in addition to the FAFSA.
They may also require you to take a minimum number of credits or units to be eligible for summer aid. At many schools, that number equals at least two courses. So, if you’re planning on making up a single course or taking a class that was full during the semester, you may need to find an alternative way to fund it.
Of course, regular rules for receiving federal financial aid apply for summer sessions as well. Among the requirements: You must be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen, not have any existing federal student loans in default and be maintaining satisfactory academic progress per your school’s definition. Talk to your school if you have questions about your eligibility.
3. Not planning ahead: Students take summer classes for a number of reasons, including keeping their studies on schedule – for instance, if they’re double majors or changed majors – and trying to get ahead of the game and graduate early.
If you’re aiming for the latter, you may be doing so to cut your tuition costs. Enrolling in summer classes can be a smart way to achieve this. Schools may charge less for classes during the summer, and you may be able to take them at a less expensive community college, too – just make sure your primary institution will accept those credits.
And while saving money on college surely sounds great, summer sessions can cost you if you don’t plan ahead. Each year, students can receive only a set amount of federal financial aid. If you’ve used up your allotment by the time summer rolls around, you may need to use more expensive funding options, like borrowing student loans from a private lender.
Your school may offer its own loans for such a shortfall, sometimes called emergency loans, but these likely also won’t have the same repayment benefits as federal loan options do. Be sure to scrutinize the details of any loan before you sign for it. While borrowing more than you planned can keep you on track for a summer session, it may end up derailing you financially in the future.
