How do I get Financial Aid?

The process is relatively simple:
1. Complete FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Our federal school code is 002777.

2. Undergraduate Students: Complete the TAP application at www.hesc.com. After you complete your FAFSA, you can click on the link which connects you to the HESC website. Enter Medaille’s Undergraduate TAP code:0505

3. Complete the electronic master promissory note (MPN) at www.studentloans.gov.

4. At the same website, complete the Subsidized/Unsubsidized entrance loan counseling.

5. A financial aid award letter will be available on MedailleOne. An e-mail notification will be sent to you once all information is received and all steps have been completed.

Why do I need to send a copy of my employer’s reimbursement policy to the Financial Aid Office?
Receiving tuition reimbursement from your employer is considered
a financial resource.
Regulations require our Office to acquire this documentation and include in your award package.
What does NOT fall under financial aid?
The most common of these are:
Your bill
Financial aid does not generate your bills or refunds; they are generated from the Student Accounts Office. For questions on billing, please contact the Student Accounts Office.

In-school certification
If you are notified that your loans are in repayment, you may need to provide the lender with in-school certification paperwork. Please contact the Registrar/Student Services Office to help you complete the deferment paperwork.
DOWN TIME DUTIES
HOW TO GET STARTED
What is Parature and how do I access it?
LESSON PLANS
How can we cover enough material for a four-credit course in just seven weeks?
Two educational concepts make the pace of the Accelerated Learning Program possible:
self-directed learning and collaborative learning.

Recent studies in adult learning patterns have shown that the traditional learning model may not be the most effective one for adults. Because adults bring so much experience to the classroom, they tend to be more efficient in their learning. And because they have such varied experiences, much of their learning is immediately applicable. People tend to learn more quickly when they can immediately apply what they have learned.
Initial instruction takes place during your individual assignments
Group assignments allow for further examination of concepts learning in initial instruction
Class time incorporates concepts through application and analysis
Interaction between a group of students
Learning is active
Team members explain concepts to one another
Stimulating discussions generating insightful and original solutions

Parature is a self-help website that contains answers to many of your frequently-asked financial aid questions. You can also submit a ticket for more specific questions.

Parature can be accessed at: http://onlinesupport.medaille.edu/finaid.
We planned for such contingencies as business travel, family emergencies, and illness.

In the event that you do miss a class, you will:
contact your instructor and the administrative office
will be asked to complete a supplemental assignment
Why? A supplemental assignment is to compensate for the missed class time and to demonstrate your understanding of concepts to the instructor.

Because of the nature of the program, absences must be kept to a minimum.

Due to the requirements of financial aid, we designate absences as excused or unexcused.

*Please note:
you will be issued an academic warning after missing two classes
after missing three courses in a row, you will be withdrawn, financially liable, and receive a grade of an "F"
What happens if I have to miss a class?
How do I find my Medaille username, password, and email account?
Your email address aliases will present in two formats.
One will incorporate your username (username@medaille.edu) and look like: jdp@medaille.edu. Your formal alias uses your full name--first, middle initial, and last--and looks like this: John.Q.Public@medaille.edu. Either email address will work.

Use the link:
http://accounts.medaille.edu/
to reset your password.

If you have any problems using the link, contact the helpdesk at helpdesk@medaille.edu or (800)292-1582 x 2282
What is Blackboard?
Blackboard is Medaille's course management software.
Your online course blueprints, including the syllabus, assignments, and documentation can be found at: http://blackboard.medaille.edu.

If you are registered for a course, you should have access to that Blackboard; as soon as one course ends, make sure you log onto your next course.

Contact your instructor if you have any issues.
May I receive updated software?
As a student at Medaille College, you are eligible to receive free copies of Microsoft Office and antivirus software.

How?
Login to http://it.medaille.edu with your username and password.
Click on the "Software" link

Be sure to check regularly for new available software!

BURSAR
What is a bursar?
The word comes from Latin and means "A keeper of the purse."

Colleges use it to refer to the office that handles student accounts.

When am I billed?
Students will receive an email notification when they receive a new e-Bill.
How do I view my e-Bill?
E-Bills can be viewed through your MedailleOne account at:
https://one.medaille.edu/ep/home/displaylogin

Login using your username and password.
FIRST STEPS
Each semester when you log on for the first time, you will need to accept the Medaille Student Financial Agreement.

Please read this form carefully, as it explains the payment policy, withdrawal policy, late fees and collection expenses, and how to receive your 1098T electronically.

The Student Financial Agreement must be accepted to proceed into your account. Without accepting the agreement, you will not be granted access to your class schedule, grades, or student billing information.
PAYMENTS
MEDAILLE STUDENT FINANCIAL AGREEMENT
For Accelerated Learning Program students, payment for each course is due on the first day of class; students who receive employer reimbursement should contact the Student Accounts Office.

A hold will be placed on your account unless other satisfactory payment arrangements – such as financial aid, employer reimbursement, or a payment plan through Tuition Management Systems – have been established.

Please review the Tuition Payment Policy and the refund policy in your student handbook and appendix for details about your financial liability and the refund/liability policy.
How can payment be made?
Medaille College accepts payment by: check, bank draft, money order, and credit card (American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover).

If you use a credit card, payment can be made via your MedailleOne account. Checks should be made payable to Medaille College.

If paying by check, money order, or bank draft please be sure that your name and student ID number are on the check. We cannot post a payment unless we know to which account it should be posted.
Where should payment be made?
Payment can be made via your MedailleOne account with a credit card at the same website where you view your e-Bill.

Mail checks or money orders directly to:
Medaille College Student Accounts Office OR
30 Wilson Road
Williamsville, NY 14221


If payment is received more than 30 days from the start of your class, you will be subject to a hold on your account.
Medaille College Student Accounts Office
18 Agassiz Circle
Buffalo, NY 14214
Why do I have a hold?
If payment is past due, a hold will be placed on the account.

PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES
Why are learning teams so important?
What other information do I need to know about groups?
How many students per group?
3-5 members
What if I am part of a small team, and
someone has to leave the program?
The remaining members of your team will consider the options available and decide their course together.

If you were on a team of four, you may wish to continue as a group of three.
A group of two may decide to combine with another team or invite another person to join.

Student Services can assist with this.

*Note: groups for online courses change on a course by course basis
What if I do not like working in learning teams?
Group learning is an integral part of this program, and we require that all students participate.

If you find the adjustment to group learning challenging,
Student Services may be able to help you with counseling and practical advice.
Do learning teams ever change?
Yes, they do.

It is healthy for groups to mix themselves up occasionally.

Potential reasons for change:
Students find that another group is a better match for them
Your work schedule may change so that a weeknight meeting is better than a weekend one.
Student expectations and performance may change, requiring a shift in groups.

You should expect teams to change as students join or leave your cohort.
It is important to remain flexible when approaching group changes and to keep the health of the cohort in mind.

*Note: groups for online courses change on a course by course basis
For additional information on Collaborative Learning Teams, look in the
ALP Guide to Collaborative Learning Teams: Forming and Maintaining Healthy Groups
.

Questions or concerns? Contact Student Services.
If I need to visit any of the campuses, where can I park?
Parking requires a sticker which is issued to you by Public Safety.
It is valid on all three Medaille campuses.

Be sure to park only in non-restricted areas.
A note of caution: although we are not aware of any security problems on any of our campuses, it is always wise to take precautions. Lock your car before coming to class. Do not leave valuables - especially your laptop - in your car.
