Late Stage Delinquency Assistance
Late stage delinquency occurs when a borrower is more than 240 but less than 361 days delinquent on student loans. The Miller College Financial Aid Office receives periodic reports from NSLDS which show the various stages of delinquency for individual borrowers. Upon receipt of these reports, the Dean of Student Services and Financial Aid sends letters to the former students listed on the report to inform them of their delinquency status, along with the consequences for defaulting on a student loan, including ineligibility for additional federal financial aid, reporting to the credit bureau, garnishment of federal income tax refunds, etc. The letter encourages these borrowers to contact their lender and work out payment arrangements to avoid future problems.
NOTE: Students entering Miller College with defaulted student loans from prior institutions are not eligible to receive federal financial aid. Therefore, the student’s financial aid record is not processed until the defaulted loan status has been resolved.
Satisfactory Academic Progress and Attendance Policies (See College Website)
The Miller College policy for satisfactory academic progress is designed to assist the student in meeting and maintaining a level of achievement that will assure reasonable progress toward graduation. Miller College expects each student to accept the responsibility of maintaining the required minimum 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale.
A student who falls below a cumulative 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale will be placed on Academic Probation. Credit earned at another institution may not be used to clear probationary status at Miller College. If a student on Academic Probation fails to earn a semester GPA of 2.0 or better at Miller College, he/she will be suspended from the College for one semester.
After one semester, a student suspended from Miller College may seek re-instatement to the College by completing the Re-Instatement to Miller College form available in the Student Services Office. The student is also required to meet with an advisor. If readmitted, the student will remain on Academic Probation until he/she achieves a cumulative grade point average (Overall GPA) of 2.0. A re-instated student who fails to earn a semester GPA of 2.0 or better will be dismissed from the College.
NOTE: Students enrolled in the Binda School of Education should review the separate Standards of Academic Progress for the Binda School of Education found in the School of Education section of the catalog.
NOTE: Students enrolled in the RN to BSN program should review the separate Standards of Academic Progress for the program.
Students receiving financial aid should review the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information on how SAP affects financial aid eligibility.
