Hello,

 

Happy December and welcome to Winter Quarter! We know this is a busy time of year for everyone, so we have kept our updates and announcements short. Please make a note of the following:

 

  1. 1.       Winter Quarter bills are due this coming Monday, December 15th. You can pay online with a credit card or in person at Student Accounts with a check or cash. Instructions on how to pay online, as well as how to set up a Parent PIN to give them access to pay online, are here. Keep in mind that if you do not pay on time you will be charged late fees and that if you owe a balance, you will not be able to register for Spring Quarter when the time comes. If you are looking for additional financing options, please contact the Financial Aid Office. If you have questions about payments or a payment plan, please contact the Student Accounts Office.

 

  1. 2.       If you are waiting for a financial aid refund, be advised that you will receive an email when your check is ready to be picked up. We do not have an exact date at this time, but anticipate checks being ready sometime next week. Please contact Student Accounts with further questions.

 

  1. 3.       FAFSA time is almost here! The FAFSA for the 2015-2016 school year goes live January 1st, 2015. Our priority deadline to file is March 15th, 2015. More information will be coming in January!

 

  1. 4.       The Holiday Season is a time of giving and cheer, so why not give yourself a gift this year? Check out our Money Monday blog as well as all of the currently available scholarships we are promoting!

 

  We wish everyone a happy, safe, and successful winter quarter!

Happy Monday! Who else had a more productive than usual Sunday thanks to the Packers playing tonight? Maybe you watched a man not get eaten alive by a snake, maybe you're still in mourning over the Badger football loss, or maybe, like me, you are eagerly awaiting tomorrow's TV programming: the return of Pretty Little Liars for it's first ChristmAs episode AND the airing of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

 

So what do all of those things have in common? There are a LOT of media things to distract you from school, and that's not even counting all of things you could instantly stream. If you're going to take a break from your studies to watch some TV (which it's perfectly fine and healthy to take breaks!), why not make the most of it and work on a scholarship or two? Even if you only work on commercials, you'll be getting something done!

Best of luck to those who apply, and welcome back to campus once again!

Congratulations on making it through the fall quarter! What has everyone been doing in their downtime? Maybe you watched the AMAs last night, or maybe you witnessed the best catch in football possibly ever, or maybe you've been playing GTA V. Whatever you've been up to, you have a few days of peace left before all of your friends at semester schools come home and before you have quality family time on Thanksgiving (followed by quality survival of the fittest time reminiscent of the charge to the Cornucopia on Black Friday).

 

What's a person to do in these next few days? Apply to some scholarships obviously! Be sure to check these out as well as others that are currently available. To those interested in fellowships: this break would be a wonderful time to get started!

Congratulations on making it through the first quarter of the 2014-2015 school year! Maybe this is your first term ever in college, or maybe you are graduating this Saturday. Whatever the case, it is my sworn duty to provide you with some comedic relief during finals week. In fact, with the exception of Valentine's Day when I post ridiculously bad Valentine's Day cards, finals week is my favorite posting of the year. And lucky for me and you, we're at a quarter school so I get 3 chances instead of just 2. Take THAT, semester schools!


If you're here reading this you're already procrastinating, so go the distance and apply for one of these scholarships!

As far as Mondays go, this one is pretty great. The weather isn't too cold yet (but winter IS coming), Thanksgiving break is now a tangible goal instead of a far away hope, and Aaron Rodgers has once again proven he is a Football God amongst men. So, I'm keeping my words short and sweet but posting lots of new scholarships today. In honor of number 12, here are 12 scholarships for you to apply for!

Best of luck to all who apply!

Hello Students-

 

The MSOE Financial Aid Office wanted to make you aware of some changes in regards to your financial aid eligibility.

 

Financial Aid Eligible Course Work

In the past, schools were only required to report whether students were registered as a full-time student, a half-time student, or a less than half-time student.  However, there is a new federal financial aid regulation that states that students must take credits that count towards their program of study to qualify for financial aid.  The purpose of this change is that the government wants to ensure that financial aid funds are being used for credits taken to complete graduation requirements. Any credits that are not a part of your program of study (i.e. curriculum track) are not eligible for financial aid.  The only exception is if the Registrar’s Office is notified by your Academic Advisor that a class you are attending will replace a class that is in your program. 

 

What does this mean for you?

If our office determines that one or more of your classes does not qualify for financial aid, we will email you and your Advisor to determine if you have been granted special permission to take the course to meet a degree requirement.

 

Any class that is determined to not meet your program requirements will be cause for an adjustment to your financial aid to reflect your enrollment level for your program.  In addition to state and federal aid changes, MSOE aid will be adjusted if you are enrolled in less than 12 total credits (full time status) for the term.  MSOE aid includes, but is not limited to, your MSOE Scholarship, Project Lead the Way funds, MSOE Grants, Destination Scholarships, etc.

 

What can you do?

  1. Make sure you are taking classes in your program of study.
  2. If a class is not officially in your program, but you have received permission to take it to replace another class or as an elective required in your program, have your advisor send written documentation of your situation to the Registrar’s Office. 
  3. If you need to take classes to maintain a certain enrollment status (i.e. full-time, half-time) check with your advisor on whether a minor or double major may allow you to keep that status and, if so, fill out the appropriate paperwork and submit it to the  Registrar’s Office.

 

Repeat Course Work

Your enrollment level is determined by what you are registered for as of 4:30p.m. Friday of week one each term.  Repeated courses will be included in the determination of your enrollment status for financial aid purposes.  Successfully completed courses that have been repeated more than once will not be considered when determining your enrollment status.

 

Example:  A student takes a class fall term and receives a D.  The student repeats the class winter term in hopes of getting a better grade and ends up receiving an F.  The student can repeat the course again but he/she would not receive financial aid for that course.  (Remember that when an undergraduate student takes a class and earns a grade below a C, if the class is re-taken the original grade is Grade Replaced.  This means that the second grade counts into the student’s GPA and the first grade is removed from the GPA.   In the example above, the student now has an F for that class and will need to take it again to meet a graduation requirement.)

 

Thank you.

 

MSOE Financial Aid Office

Hello,

 

As November begins, please take a moment to read these important announcements from the Financial Aid Office and Student Accounts:

1.       Registration for winter quarter is here. If you have a financial hold on your account you cannot register. Please take care of your holds so that you may register for classes. You may have a hold if:

    1. a. You never submitted your Statement of Financial Responsibility form. Follow that link or you can access it online from your www.my.msoe.edu account.
    2. b. You owe a balance. Now is the time to double check that you have turned in all required paperwork such as verification documents, loan entrance counseling, and promissory notes. If you have all of your paperwork in and still owe a balance, you can look into loan options. The loan options are a Parent PLUS Loan or a Private Alternative Student Loan through a bank or credit union. Additionally, you may consider contacting Student Accounts to set up a payment plan. Please talk to Financial Aid or Student Accounts with questions on how you may pay your balance.

2.       At the end of October, we hosted a presentation on Student Loans, Credit, and Money Management. Please click the link to view this important information if you were not able to attend.

3.       The Financial Aid Office aims to provide you access to scholarships you can apply for. Please see our Available Scholarships Folder and also see our most recent Money Monday blog which highlights national-level scholarships and fellowships for you to apply to. Some pay for full tuition in addition to a monthly stipend!

 

Last, while not an announcement from Financial Aid or Student Accounts, we would like to remind you that tomorrow (Tuesday, November 4th) is Election Day. For information on what you need to register, how to find your polling place, and more, please see the official information from the State of Wisconsin Government Accountability Board.

 

Have a happy November, and best of luck with the final weeks of the Fall Quarter!

Every penny counts when it comes to saving for and paying for college. Therefore, no scholarship is too small to win. Most of the scholarships I post here are in the $1,000 to $5,000 range, but I have posted ones for $300 as well as ones for $12,500. Winning a scholarship is a wonderful feeling because it is something you know you put effort in, and seeing your effort rewarded so directly makes the time you spent worth it.

 

Today, I want to get you thinking about fellowships and larger scholarships. These programs are highly competitive, but the payoff is absolutely worth it. Some of these offer full tuition plus stipends. Some offer lucrative internships and post-graduation employment guarantees. Others offer you the chance to travel abroad.

 

I will post a brief description of who is eligible for each of the programs, but it is up to you to thoroughly read the criteria to decide  if you want to apply. These applications are often time consuming and require you to write multiple essays, get letters of recommendation, and be officially nominated by the faculty representative at your school (oh hey, that's me!). If you have questions on these, please let me know. It is never too early to start working on these applications! As stated before, these take time but are often immeasurably worth it (though winning $30,000 is pretty measurable and awesome). Should you decide to apply for any of these programs, please do not hesitate to contact me with questions and particularly with help on/editing of your essays.

Whitaker International Program - Due January 20th, 2015

The Whitaker International Program sends emerging leaders in U.S. biomedical engineering (or bioengineering) overseas to undertake a self-designed project that will enhance their careers within the field.  The goal of the program is to assist the development of professional leaders who are not only superb scientists, but who also will advance the profession through an international outlook. Along with supporting grant projects in an academic setting, the Whitaker International Program encourages grantees to engage in policy work and propose projects in an industry setting.



Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship - Due January 30th, 2015 (campuses set an earlier deadline, please check with me if interested)

The purpose of the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, as stated in the enabling legislation, is to alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. A more realistic statement of the purpose, in today's terms, is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified individuals to those fields of academic study and research.



Truman Scholar Program - Due February 3rd, 2015

This program is for students who wish to be change agents in society. Students who apply should see a problem that they believe can be solved, and will work in the public service sector to help accomplish their goal.



Boren Scholarships - Due February 4th, 2015 (campuses set an earlier deadline, please check with me if interested)

Boren Scholarships, an initiative of the National Security Education Program, provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.

Boren Scholars represent a vital pool of highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena. In exchange for funding, Boren Scholars commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation.


Udall Foundation Scholarship - Due March 3rd, 2015 for nomination from faculty representative
The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment.

Halloween is this weekend. It's the one night (or two or three, depending on how many parties you go to) that you can dress as whoever or whatever you want and no judgement can befall you. Well, that's not entirely true. If you dress up as Ray Rice I will judge you and so will the whole internet, so please just don't go there. But, short of something horribly offensive and demeaning, Halloween is the time to have fun and revel in the joy of being someone else for a few hours.

 

Maybe that person you are pretending to be is a college student without financial worry. Well you could be that person all of the time! Take the time to apply to one of these scholarships; college costs can seem scary, but winning a scholarship is a real treat!

Happy October! As your schoolwork picks up and the weather gets colder, please take a moment to read about some important updates from the Financial Aid & Student Account Offices:

 

1. On Monday, October 20th we will be hosting an event with FREE LUNCH provided. This event is “STUDENT LOANS, CREDIT, and MONEY MANAGEMENT: Everything You Need to Know about Spending Wisely”. It will be held in the Multipurpose Room on the 3rd floor of the CC. Mark your calendars now, and look for more detailed information coming soon!

 

2. Are you thinking about dropping a class? Doing so could impact your financial aid. For more information on this, please refer to our Satisfactory Academic Policy to be sure you make the decision that is in your best interest.

 

 

3. The Annual Career Fair is this Friday and many companies will be looking to offer you jobs or internships. But did you know we already partner with some of these companies and they can give you scholarships too? Check out our most recent Money Monday blog for details and the opportunity to score a scholarship as well as a summer internship!

 

4. Registration for Winter classes is right around the corner, so be sure that you do not have any financial holds on your account that will prohibit you from registering. You must have paid your account balance and filled out the Student Statement of Financial Responsibility. If you owe a balance and are looking for options, please contact our office.

 

 

5. If you live in the Tower (we are jealous!), please be advised that your rent is due the 1st of every month, meaning you are past due for October if you have not paid yet. For questions on this or to make payments, please contact Jenny Wraalstad in Student Accounts.

 

Thank you for reading these important updates, and enjoy the beautiful fall weather before the snow arrives!

During this time of year, school and life can start to feel pretty monotonous. The newness of the year is wearing off, Thanksgiving is still over a month away, and the weather is making you increasingly never want to leave your room. And to top it off, it's Monday. Ew. Gross.

 

Well maybe you forgot that Monday's are secretly great! Fresh start to the week, bragging rights about your team's win over the weekend, and a whole host of new scholarships to apply to! Enjoy this Money Monday with 9 new scholarships (because I knew that 10 would just give you too many choices) and never forget that Tuesdays are actually the worst day of the week. Seriously, if it weren't for the Mindy Project I really don't see a point in Tuesdays.

Best of luck to those who apply!

If you didn't already know, the annual MSOE Career Fair 2014 is this Friday, October 10th. You probably want to be there, that is unless you don't want a summer job/internship or one after graduation (though if you already have one lined up, kudos to you!). There will be many companies looking to hire you; how cool is that?

 

But, did you also know that MSOE has partnerships with many of these companies? Not only can you get a paid summer internship, but you can also get them to pay you to go to school via a scholarship. Check out the opportunities below and then look for these companies at the Career Fair!
