FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS

Federal Pell Grant - This federal grant is available to undergraduate students who have NOT received a baccalaureate degree. Eligibility is determined by the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated using information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Funds from this award will be divided equally between Fall and Spring semesters and will be credited to the student's account accordingly. The FAFSA may be obtained from a high school guidance counselor or from our office by calling the number on our home page. You may also complete the FAFSA on the World Wide Web. www.fafsa.ed.gov 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) - This federal grant is awarded based on the student's EFC and the availability of funds. The Office of Student Work and Financial Aid using information from the student's FAFSA determines eligibility. This grant is available to undergraduate students who have not received a baccalaureate degree. Funding is limited and priority is given to Pell Grant recipients.

Federal Perkins Loan - This federal loan is originated by the school rather than an outside lender. It is awarded based on the student's EFC and the availability of funds. This is a long-term, low-interest (5%) loan, which enters repayment nine months after the student ceases to be enrolled at least half time. The maximum Perkins Loan is $4,000 per year for undergraduates. Funds subject to availability.

Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan - This is a low-interest loan that enters repayment six months after the student ceases to be enrolled at least half time. The term "subsidized" means the government pays the interest on the loan while the student is enrolled in school and during the six-month grace period after a student ceases to be enrolled at least half time. Freshmen may be eligible to borrow up to $2,625, sophomores up to $3,500, and juniors and seniors up to $5,500. Your may check on the status of your loan by accessing ELM Resources. www.elmresources.com 

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan - This loan program provides financial assistance to all students regardless of income. It is very similar to the Subsidized Stafford Loan in that the repayment terms and loan limits by class standing are the same. The difference is that the student, rather than the federal government, is responsible for paying the interest on the loan while he or she is enrolled. Loan proceeds from the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan will be disbursed like the Subsidized Stafford Loan above, and the total amount of both the Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans must not be more that the annual loan limits set for the student's class standing. You may check on the status of your loan by accessing ELM Resources. www.elmresources.com 

Federal College Work-Study - This federal program provides part-time employment for eligible students. Students usually work 10 to 20 hours per week and receive a paycheck biweekly. The paycheck is made out to the student and the student chooses how to use the money. Eligibility for this program is determined by the Office of Student Work and Financial Aid and is based on demonstrated need and the availability of funds.

Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) - This federal loan is a long-term, low-interest loan available to parents of dependent students regardless of income level. The annual loan limit is equal to the cost of attending Berry College, less any financial assistance the student is eligible to receive. This loan enters repayment 60 days after the last disbursement of each academic year. 

GEORGIA STATE FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS

Hope Scholarship - Legal residents of Georgia who have achieved a "B" average in the core curriculum and have been declared a HOPE Scholar by their High School may apply for the HOPE Scholarship to attend Berry by completing the Berry College Student Data Form (SDF) and the Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant Application (GTG). Students must enroll on a full-time basis (12 or more hours) and will receive $3000 per academic year as long as eligibility requirements as defined by the Georgia Student Finance Commission are maintained. 

Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant - Legal residents of Georgia who are full-time may also be eligible to receive $927 per academic year from the Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant. Students must complete the GTG Application and the SDF.

HOPE PROMISE Scholarship - The PROMISE Teacher Scholarship Program-a component of Georgia's HOPE Scholarship Program-provides forgivable loans to high-achieving students who aspire to be teachers in Georgia public school. If you commit to teach in a Georgia public school, you will pay less for your education. For a four-year commitment, you can receive up to $3,000 for your Junior and Senior Years.
A student must:

  1. Have earned a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 based on a 4.0 scale (including all courses taken) and be academically classified as a junior.   
  2. Be accepted for enrollment into an approved teacher education program in Georgia leading to initial certification.

Bonner Scholars Program - Established by The Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation of Princeton, NJ, this program supports students at 25 institutions around the country. In an attempt to integrate community service into the college experience, the Bonner Scholars Program provides a service alternative to replace the job component of a financial aid package. Bonner Scholars are selected based on financial need and interest in community service and receive a stipend through direct grants, stipends, and expense money. While in the Program, Bonner Scholars are expected to be active in service during the academic year and summers, participate in educational enrichment activities.
