Maybe I'm still sad about the Wisconsin Basketball loss over the weekend, but that cat has certainly got my tongue. Therefore, this post will be short, sweet, and to the point.

  • If you haven't yet, please file your 2014-2015 FAFSA. If you have any questions about that, contact our office or stop in.
  • If you've been selected for verification, complete that as soon as possible because we can't get you a final award until it is complete.
  • If you like winning free money to apply towards your education, apply for a scholarship or two. The ones below are a good starting place, but don't forget to think local as well!

You know it's a busy time of year when Money Monday appears on a Wednesday. I mean, this week featured Opening Day and April Fool's Day back to back so I was pretty busy catching up on Hank #TheBallparkPup and also pranking people all day yesterday.

 

Just kidding. We have all been busy putting together award packages, performing verification, and being trapped in Iowa because of car problems. So maybe that last one was only me, and yes that actually did happen on Monday. But enough about me, let's get to why you're here reading this lovely blog post: Scholarships!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Not only is this holiday a big deal in the city of Milwaukee, but MSOE has a special connection because St. Patrick is the patron saint of engineers. Who knew? Well, apparently everybody at MSOE, given the week-long celebration and schedule of events happening on campus. As this will be my first St. Patrick's Day with MSOE, I'm pretty curious to see how fun the week is!

Whether you're wearing green today or not, you can win some green by applying to one of these scholarships. May the luck of the Irish be on your side!

And please remember, file your FAFSA as soon as you can. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office!

Happy March! It feels like spring outside and Leonardo DiCaprio finally won an Oscar last night! Approximately 0% of what I just said is true, you caught me. But what is true is how many great scholarship opportunities are available for you right here in this post. How do I know this? Some are open to all majors and don't even have a GPA cut off. No excuses; make something of your break week and apply!

Happy Presidents' Day! Or Washington's Birthday, or Abraham Lincoln's Birthday, or just another Monday. If you've been eyeing up a new futon or something, check out all the furniture sales (I don't know why there are big furniture sales today but that's besides the point).

 

As Abraham Lincoln said, "I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday." You learn things each day, and the next you get to put that knowledge to the test. Today you learned about these scholarship opportunities. What will you do with that knowledge tomorrow?

WI High School Seniors: Wisconsin Title I Association Student Scholarship


Best of luck to all who apply!

While we all know that education is a great investment in a person's future, many parents and students may not know of the monetary perks that paying for an education can bring them. Whether you're a brand new tax filer or a seasoned vet, you may not be certain about the different tax incentives that the federal government provides that can help defray the cost of higher education.

These incentives come in two different forms: tax credits and tax deductions. Tax credits reduce the amount of tax you are liable for, while tax deductions reduce the amount of income on which you pay taxes. In this post, we'll go over all of the incentives in both of these categories. More information can be found in IRS Publication 970 (http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p970.pdf).

 

Tax Credits

American Opportunity Tax Credit- Up to $2,500 per student

This credit offsets what you pay for the first four years of higher education by reducing the amount of income tax you pay. This credit is also partially refundable (up to $1,000 can be refunded if your credit is more than you owe in taxes).

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) of $90,000 or less ($180,000 or less for married couples filing a joint return).
  • Have a student that was enrolled at least half-time for one term in 2013 in an eligible program leading to a degree, certificate, or other recognized credential at an eligible school.
  • Claim within the first 4 years of post-secondary education (undergraduate).
  • Student cannot have a drug conviction (possessing or distributing a controlled substance).
  • Must file a tax return to claim the credit (even if you are not required to file taxes).
  • Only the person claiming the student is eligible to claim the credit.
  • You cannot claim this credit if you are claiming the Lifetime Learning Credit or the Tuition and Fees Deduction for the student.


Lifetime Learning Tax Credit- Up to $2,000 per tax return

This credit is available for all types of post-secondary education (helpful to graduate students) and can be used to offset what you pay for tuition and fees, as well as other required expenses (books, supplies, equipment). This credit, unlike the American Opportunity Tax Credit, is non-refundable (meaning the maximum credit is limited to the amount of tax you owe).

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Modified Adjusted Gross income (MAGI) of $62,000 or less ($124,000 or less for married couples filing a joint return).
  • have taken any type of post-secondary education (you don't have to be pursuing a degree or certificate to qualify).
  • Students with drug convictions can still qualify.
  • Must file a tax return to claim the credit (even if you are not required to file taxes) and have some income liability.
  • Only the person claiming the student is eligible to claim the credit.
  • You cannot claim this credit if you are claiming the American Opportunity Tax Credit.

 

Tax Deductions

Tuition & Feed Tax Deduction- Up to $4,000 taxable income reduction

If you are not eligible for the tax credits listed above, this may benefit you. This deduction amount depends on your income and the amount of qualified tuition & related expenses paid for eligible students (tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment). This is an adjustment to your income, so you can claim this deduction even if you do not itemize deductions.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) of $80,000 or less ($160,000 or less for married couples filing a joint return).
  • Have a student that was enrolled in one or more courses in 2013 at an eligible institution.
  • Must file a tax return to claim the deduction (even if you are not required to file taxes).
  • Only the person claiming the student is eligible to claim the deduction.
  • You cannot claim this deduction along with a credit for the same student.
  • You cannot claim this deduction if you are married and file taxes separately or if another person can claim you as a dependent on his or her tax return.

 

Student Loan Interest Deduction- Up to $2,500 taxable income reduction

This deduction allows you to deduct interest paid on student loans for yourself, your spouse, or your dependents. This deduction amount depends on your income and the amount of interest paid. This is an adjustment to your income, so you can claim this deduction even if you do not itemize deductions.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) of $75,000 or less ($155,000 or less for married couples filing a joint return).
  • Made payments on a qualified student loan (used to fund a student enrolled at least half-time in an eligible institution, pursuing a degree, certificate, or similar program).
  • Must file a tax return to claim the deduction (even if you are not required to file taxes).
  • You cannot claim this deduction if you are married and file taxes separately or if another person can claim you as a dependent on his or her tax return.

 

What you'll need:

1098-T

This is a statement from MSOE that will detail tuition & fees that you have paid for the calendar year of 2013. We mail the statement to your permanent address on or before January 31st, 2014.

1098-E (for Student Loan Interest Deduction ONLY)

This is a form sent from the student loan lender to the borrower, detailing the amount of interest paid for the 2013 year. Statements are mailed to the address on file.

 

Question of the day: Are Scholarships & Grants Taxable?

Scholarships, grants, fellowships and other gift aid that you have received in 2013 that are reported on your 1098-T may need to be reported as taxable income in certain circumstances. In general, however, if you are pursuing a degree, certificate, or program of training toward gainful employment, and used the funds to pay for tuition, fees, or required books/supplies/equipment, then they should not be counted as taxable income. More information on this is found in Publication 970.


Love is in the air. And by love I mean arctic winds, snow, and a general pleading to the Weather Gods for warmer temperatures.

 

air.jpg

Maybe actual love is in the air for you this week with it being Valentine's Day on Friday and all. No matter your romantic status, I think you'll enjoy the photos in this post as well as the scholarships available. Show some self-love this Valentine's Day and give yourself the best gift of all: free money and a less stressful education!

Are you overloaded with homework, stressed about the term, and have been thinking about dropping a class or potentially withdrawing? Yes, this is time of the term that hits students hard, but it doesn't mean you have to pick up and leave. There are lots of reasons why you should take on the mindset of the Little Engine that Could, but we understand that it’s not always possible.

LETC.jpg

If you’re seriously thinking about dropping a class, you need to consider the following things:

When is the last day to drop? The last day to drop any classes is Monday, February 3rd at 6pm.

Can you reach out for academic assistance? If you’re just stuck on a concept or nervous about an upcoming test because of course content, remember that there are resources available to you. The Learning Resource Center (LRC) offers tutoring of all kinds to assist you throughout the year. They have drop-in mathematics, physics, chemistry and writing help, as well as individual and group tutoring sessions. For more information, you can visit www.msoe.edu/lrc, call them at (414) 277-7274 or visit them in CC02.

Will dropping affect your Financial Aid? Any time you drop a class after the first Friday of the term, it has the potential to impact your standing with Financial Aid. What does that mean exactly? For Financial Aid purposes, we have a Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy that students must follow. In order to stay satisfactory with Financial Aid, you need to do two things: keep a 2.0 cumulative GPA and complete 67% of all of your attempted credits. The full policy can be found here: MSOE Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.pdf.

What’s the bottom line? Think before you drop. Talk to staff members in both Financial Aid and the Registrar’s Office to fully understand the impact it will have on you.

 

If you have questions about this policy or you are thinking about dropping a class or withdrawing, call or come in the Financial Aid Office as soon as you can. We have an open-door policy and are open Monday-Thursday 8am-5pm and Fridays 8am-4:30pm.

The Grammys were Sunday, The State of the Union Address is tonight, and the Superbowl is this coming Sunday. What a week for television, pop culture, and memes! I don't think we've quite figured out what was under Pharrell's hat, though Buzzfeed has some interesting theories here and here. I'm going to pretend that it's filled with scholarship dollars for you all because I'm a cool (if cool means nerdy of course) Financial Aid Counselor like that.

For once, I'm going to be totally serious. Today is a very special day: Martin Luther King Jr. Day. While he was certainly a prominent civil rights leader, he also was dedicated to community, service, and education. Ideally, we should strive to work together, build equality, and strengthen our communities every day. So while you might ponder why you are in school today when many other schools are not, take at what he said about education:

 

 

Embrace the opportunity to receive education as a gift, and use it to make the world a better place. People are willing to pay it forward to you to accomplish your goals, so see the generosity of others as a gift too and apply for a scholarship today.

The craziness of the Holiday season has past, I won't care about football until next season, baseball is still far off, and I'm less motivated than ever to leave my house on the weekends. Maybe you can relate? Now might be a good time to use that extra free time to take a break from binge watching T.V. (my newest addiction is The Mindy Project) and think ahead for how you're going to pay for school next year.  Make sure you file the FAFSA, and, while you're at it, why not apply to a scholarship too?

 

Also, today is our big Scholarship Presentation Event. Come eat free pizza and hang out with the fun folks in Financial Aid (hey, that's me!), Career Services, TRiO, and Development.
