FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
Satisfactory Academic Progress of Federal Financial Aid
Each semester, tuition and fees are billed. Students are considered full-time if they have 12 or more credit hours. Students who carry more than 18 credit hours must pay an overload fee of $457 per credit hour. Additional costs apply to some courses.
Tuition and fees can be paid via Saint Augustine’s University’s Office of Student Accounts. The Office of Student Accounts is committed to serving students with their accounting requirements at Saint Augustine’s University. The Student Accounts Office’s principal duty is to organize and maintain all elements of the student’s financial account, including the invoicing of tuition, housing, meals, and fees. Other duties include creating bills, processing payments, providing refunds, and keeping payment plans up to date. Our friendly and experienced team is here to help you and your family with any questions or concerns you may have. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Accounts team at email@example.com.
Refunds are processed through the Office of Student Accounts. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Accounts team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax Information can be found on My Falcon Landing (Student Self-Service) and download various tax forms (Tax Information).
- The 1098-T form is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and is used by eligible educational institutions to report information for each student they enroll and for whom a reportable transaction is made during the calendar year, according to The Taxpayer Relief Act (TRA) of 1997.
- Saint Augustine’s University is unable to provide individual income tax advice. If you have any 1098-T Tax-Related questions regarding the tax credit, eligibility, reporting your tax credit on your tax return, etc., we strongly encourage you to contact a tax professional.
For any student that is eligible for financial aid who doesn’t have enough aid to cover their remaining balance or has not applied for financial aid:
- A dependent student can have their parent apply for the Parent Plus Loan. Approval is based on the parent’s credit.
- If the parent is denied, the student is eligible for an unsubsidized loan in the amount of $4,000 if classified as a freshman or sophomore and $5,000 if classified as a junior or senior.
- If the parent does not want to apply for a Parent Plus Loan, they are encouraged to set up a payment plan with the Office of Student Accounts.
- If a student is not meeting SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress), they will have to set up a payment plan as they are INELIGIBLE FOR FEDERAL/STATE FINANCIAL AID.
- If a student has not completed their FAFSA and wants to attend SAU, they must set up a payment plan. Once their FAFSA is received and reviewed, the student will be awarded if no other information is required.
Students that have a balance on their account after their financial aid has been applied will be required to enter into a payment plan in order to register for the current semester.
- Any student with a balance will be required to make a deposit to enroll in a payment plan and make the monthly payments based on the plan agreed with the Business Office. This deposit will reduce the balance for the semester.
- The Business Office will place a hold on the student account for any unpaid balances.
- Students should view their account balance via the My Falcon Landing Portal. All payments must be to the Business Office.
*All students’ account balances must be paid in full for the student to be eligible to register and/or enroll for the next semester*
