Emergency Student Financial Assistance - Updated 05-13-2020

by Chanelle Hyde -

Dear MSON Student,

As you may be aware, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was signed into law on March 27, 2020, provides emergency assistance for individuals, families and businesses affected by the 2020 coronavirus (COVID-19).

The college has identified several provisions that may provide relief for MSON students. 

Below are provisions in the CARES Act that pertain to Montefiore School of Nursing students and only provide relief as a result of being COVID-19 related:

  1. Federal financial aid relief for students who withdraw from all spring term courses:
    1. Students who withdraw may keep federal Pell grants awarded for the spring term.
    2. Students who withdraw are not obligated to repay the federal Direct Student Loans borrowed for the spring term.
    3. Students who withdraw maintain pre-Spring 2020 lifetime eligibility for federal Pell grants and federal Direct Student Loans. 
  1. Satisfactory academic progress (SAP) flexibility: Permits MSON to exclude attempted credits not completed from the quantitative component of the SAP calculation without requiring an appeal.
  2. Temporary relief for federal student loan borrowers: Suspends borrowers’ obligations to make payments on their federally held student loans, including Direct and FFELP Loans through September 2020; suspends interest on payments; counts the suspended payments towards payment requirements for forgiveness provisions; and suspends garnishment of wages, Social Security and tax refunds, among other measures, for borrowers in default during this time.
  3. Emergency Financial Assistance for students that have been impacted by COVID 19. (PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE UPDATED APPLICATION ON MOODLEROOMS). (If you have submitted an application prior to May 13, 2020, you will not need to submit a new application).

 

The measures outlined in bullets 1 and 2 are meant to provide significant relief to students who believe they simply cannot continue this semester and must withdraw.

If you have additional questions or concerns regarding these provisions, you can contact the Financial Aid Office at 914-361-6081 or the Registrar’s Office at 914-361-6472.


EXCUSED WITHDRAWAL PROCESS FOR COVID-19 AFFECTED STUDENTS

by Chanelle Hyde -

EXCUSED WITHDRAWAL PROCESS FOR COVID-19 AFFECTED STUDENTS

Montefiore School of Nursing recognizes that as a student you are making great efforts to continue your education in the face of uncertainty and challenges. Students, Montefiore School of Nursing and Montefiore Health Systems have all made admirable efforts to meet the challenges posed by the statewide emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, some students may still find it too challenging to complete their Spring 2020 courses, given their individual situations.

Montefiore School of Nursing is allowing students to withdraw from a course or courses and not receive a Withdrawal (“W”) grade this semester. Students withdrawing due to the COVID-19 pandemic will receive an Excused Withdrawal (EW). (Download Form Here)

This is a substantially different type of grade for transfer purposes. An Excused Withdrawal (EW) is used to record a student’s withdrawal due to verifiable, documented reasons beyond the student’s control.

Students who wish to make an Excused Withdrawal (EW) request may do so by May 8, 2020.

This change is retroactive to March 16, 2020 as well. Students who dropped a course or courses starting on March 16th and received a “W” will have their grade changed to an “EW”.

HOW CAN I SUBMIT REQUEST FOR AN EXCUSED WITHDRAWAL (EW) GRADE?

SUBMIT TO THE REGISTRAR’S OFFICE:

  • Students must submit to the Registrar’s Office the "Excused Withdrawal Due to COVID19" form (Download Form Here).

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IF I SUBMIT FOR AN EW GRADE?


REFUND:

  • Students dropping their course(s) due to the COVID-19 pandemic will not receive a refund of enrollment fees or tuition fees.

COURSE COMPLETION/TRANSFER STATUS

  • An EW grade for a course indicates that a student did not complete the course. If a course or courses are needed for admission to a transfer institution, it is recommended that students meet with a counselor to discuss the implications BEFORE deciding to drop any course(s).
  • The grade of EW only applies to eligible withdrawals from Montefiore School of Nursing courses and must be due to COVID-19.
  • Students are encouraged to check with the institution in which they are enrolled in general education courses for policies related to general education course withdrawals.
  • Students will not have their EW grade held against their completion ratio for Montefiore School of Nursing.

FINANCIAL ELIGIBILITY

  • For more details on the impact to financial aid eligibility, contact the Financial Aid office:

VETERAN BENEFITS:

  • Students receiving VA education benefits may be required to repay their awards if they take an EW. For more details, contact the Financial Aid office:
