The University of North Dakota Student Financial Aid Office will consider appropriate
flight costs in determining a student’s financial need. In order to consider these
costs, certain conditions must be met. The current policies and procedures used
by the Student Financial Aid Office are listed below.
Apply for Admission
You must be a regularly admitted, degree-seeking
student to qualify for financial aid.
Complete the FAFSA
UND utilizes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal
Application as its application for all financial aid. The aid available includes
grants, work-study, and loan programs. The FAFSA is available from your local high
school, postsecondary school, or the Federal Student Aid Information Center (1-800-4-FED-AID).
The FAFSA can also be requested from the Student Financial Aid Office, or students
can apply directly by using FAFSA on the World Wide Web. The address is www.fafsa.ed.gov
. The FAFSA must be received
by the processing center before March 15 to meet the priority funding date.
We recommend that students also request The Student Guide–Financial Aid for
the current academic year. This guide details the various Federal Student Financial
Assistance (SFA) Programs and how to apply for them.
The Student Financial Aid Office will award any financial aid the student is eligible
for once they receive the student’s application information from the Federal processing
center. All incoming freshman and transfer students will receive a notification
to activate their UND email account (U-Mail). All award notification will be sent
to their U-Mail account (www.und.edu). This e-mail notification will contain a direct
link to CampusConnection. Please send any other documents requested in a timely
manner. Financial aid disbursements could be delayed. For further details, please
refer to the brochures and information sheets published by the Student Financial
Loan Processing Information
Students that are accepting their Federal Direct Loan need to complete Entrance
Loan Counseling and sign a Master Promissory Note at www.studentloans.gov
. Loan funds are received electronically
and will be credited directly to the student’s University account. Any funds in
excess of the amount owed to the University at the time of disbursement are considered
“excess aid” and are released to the student’s UND Pride Card (www.undpridecard.com).
The student must choose their preference for receiving their refunds. Students have
a choice of one of the following:
Direct deposit (ACH transfer)– This preference transfers the refund into
the student’s existing bank account. This preference takes approximately 2 – 3 banking
days to credit to the student’s bank account.
Easy Refund to the OneAccount– This preference credits the student’s OneAccount
with Higher One on the same day the refunds are processed by UND. This is the fastest
way to receive a refund. The OneAccount also offers many features for the student.
If you have not received your UND Pride Card, contact the Student Account Services
Office at 800.225.5863 extension 3911 or direct at 701.777.3911. If you have additional
questions about the Pride Card, please visit UNDPrideCard.com.
Students are encouraged to have a known source of income prior to enrolling in any
flight training-related curriculum. Flight costs are not included in tuition
or fees. They are determined on an hourly basis for aircraft and flight instruction,
and are in addition to tuition, fees, and any other incidental expenses that are
normally charged during registration. Flight costs may be added to the estimated
cost of attendance if the student is a declared aviation major(or pre-commercial
aviation, pre-air traffic control, pre-aviation technology management or pre-flight
education, or pre unmanned aircraft systems) or a declared (pre) aviation management
or (pre) airport management degree seeking student within the College of Business
and enrolled in a flight course required for their major.
The Student Financial Aid Office will send the student a revised award notice if
there is a change in awards after the student registers for a flight course. If
the student has already been awarded the maximum aid, or if the aid that has been
offered is not sufficient to cover costs, there are Federal Direct PLUS loans or
several private educational loans for which the student may apply. For more details
please visit www.financialaid.und.edu
– Student Loans.
Student and parents are encouraged to apply for loans one semester at a time, since
flight costs are only considered after registration each semester. Loan applications
must be submitted to the Department of Education or private lender prior to August 1, but not before June, for fall semester or December 15 for spring semester
to ensure timely processing and receipt of loan funds. Information on the commercial
loans may be obtained at the Student Financial Aid Office.
Current Aviation Financial Policy
Students enrolling in flight courses are required to deposit money into their flight
accounts on a regular basis to cover incurred flight costs. The UND Student Account
Service Office requires aviation deposits be made by using cash, or check at the
Teller Window-- hours are 8:00am-4:300pm Monday, Wednesday through Friday, Tuesday
(9:00am-4:30pm, and closed on Saturday and Sundays. If you prefer to make a deposit
with a credit card (Discover, MasterCard, American Express) or E-check, this can
be done on-line through your Campus Connection account. There is a 2.75% or (minimum
$3) fee for credit card deposits. CREDIT CARDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED AT THE TELLER WINDOWS.
Flight deposits made at the UND Student Account Service Office will be available
for use the next business day in the aviation account.
If the flight account falls below $200 at any time, for any reason, the student
will not be allowed to schedule or dispatch until a sufficient balance appears in
the account. Students are encouraged not to wait until the last minute to make
deposits into their flight accounts. Students receiving Financial Aid to assist
with their flight costs will be allowed to begin flying before the aid is received.
This is done by the student requesting to be placed on “financial arrangement.”
The amount of aid in excess of tuition, fees, and housing (if any) is entered into
the aviation computer system. If excess aid has not been received yet but has been
approved by UND Student Financial Aid and lender, contact Peggy at 701-777-3218
or Suzi at 701-777-2185 to discuss being put on financial agreement.
