RN Financial Aid Information

To receive aid from the student aid programs, a student must:
  • Demonstrate financial need.
  • Have a high school diploma or a General Education Development (GED) Certificate.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
  • Have a valid social security number.
  • Meet satisfactory academic progress standards.
  • Certify that she/he will use federal student aid only for educational purposes.
  • Certify that she/he is not in default on a federal student loan and that she/he does not owe money on a federal student loan.
  • Register with Selective Service, if required.
A student must maintain satisfactory academic progress, qualitative and quantitative, to continue to be eligible to receive financial aid. Satisfactory academic progress means that the student must complete all courses each semester, achieving the required grade according to the Curriculum Organizational Plan, as a full, three-quarter or half-time student. The student must complete the program in a three-year time frame.

There are a limited number of partial scholarships made available to the School of Nursing. Scholarship awards are based on availability of funds, academic performance and financial need. All are subject to the criteria set forth by the donor. Applications are available in the Financial Aid Office, 201-833-3004.
Full-Time, Three-Quarter Time, And Half-Time Students

Students are considered full-time if they are taking at least twelve (12) credits per semester, three-quarter time if taking at least nine (9) credits, and half-time if they are taking at least six (6) credits per semester.

Students generally complete the entire two-year program in two years as outlined in the Curriculum Organizational Plan. However, qualified students may take up to three years if they choose to enroll for college courses only for the first year. Students who are taking the three-year track, either by choice or as assigned by the Admissions & Promotions Committee, must pass all college courses in which they are enrolled to be eligible for admission into the nursing program. Students who leave and re-enter the program may require additional time. Students do not qualify for any financial aid after the third year.

Financial Obligation

Final exams may not be taken and requests for transcripts may not be honored until the student meets all financial obligations.
Entrance/Exit Interviews

A student must participate in an entrance counseling session prior to disbursement of any loan funds. A student must participate in an exit counseling session prior to graduation or withdrawal from the program.
Applying for Financial Aid

Students accepted into Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing who are interested in applying for financial aid must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form for each calendar year. The form can be completed on line:, or mailed to the Federal Student Aid programs. The School may also require additional financial documents from all students applying for financial aid. The school code for Holy Name Medical Center School of Nursing is 006417.
Financial Assistance

The school participates in the following programs:
  1. A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are available to eligible undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. Pell grants provide a "foundation" of financial aid to which other federal and non-federal sources may be added.
  2. The Federal Direct Loan Program: Federal Direct Subsidized and Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans are low interest loans made to eligible students attending school at least half-time. Federal Direct PLUS Loans enable parents with good credit histories to borrow for each dependent student who is enrolled at least half-time.
  3. Partial Scholarships: Partial Scholarships are awarded based on the student's financial need, and are incentive based. Occasionally scholarships are awarded based solely on merit. Scholarship applications are reviewed and awarded quarterly by the Scholarship Committee and the following criteria apply:

    • Need Based - The student must file the FAFSA and complete a financial aid appointment to determine need.
    • Incentive Based - The student must demonstrate strong academic potential in theory and clinical practice (minimum grade of 2.0 in all courses).
    • Donor Restrictions - The student must meet the requirements designated by the scholarship donor.
    • Availability of Funds - Awards are limited by the time at which the School receives the award funds, the amount awarded and the number of students meeting the above criteria.
    Students who are selected by the Scholarship Committee to receive a scholarship will receive notification via email and/or mail. Recipients are required to write a letter of thanks to the donor before any scholarship funds are disbursed to their student account card. All recipients' financial aid awards must be reviewed to determine whether a partial scholarship will create a potential over-award in federal funds. Loans may be reduced by the scholarship amount if an over-award is determined by the Financial Aid Officer.

    Information received by the School of Nursing regarding miscellaneous outside scholarships is available in the Financial Aid Office and published on Blackboard©.
  4. There are alternative loan programs if Stafford Loan limits are insufficient.
