FINANCIAL AID
The main sources of financial aid available to students enrolled in the Greater Rochester Collaborative Master of Social Work (GRC MSW) Program include:
      •    Federal Direct Stafford Loans       •    Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans     •    Graduate Assistantships
Please refer to the requirements and procedures listed below to ensure timely receipt of your federal student aid.

Federal Direct Loan Program

MSW students are eligible to borrow Federal Direct Loans as long as the following conditions are met:

As a graduate student, the maximum you may borrow in the Federal Direct Loan Program is $20,500 per academic year. Upon receipt of a current FASFA, the Nazareth Financial Aid Office will automatically award you the following unsubsidized Direct Loan amounts if you are enrolled in only one or two semesters per academic year:

These amounts are subject to Cost of Attendance (COS)

Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans

When Federal Direct Stafford subsidized/unsubsidized loan eligibility is exhausted, graduate students may borrow additional loans under the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan program, up to the Cost of Attendance. To apply for a Federal Graduate PLUS loan, please complete the following:

.
NOTE: For students enrolled in three semesters (summer, fall, spring) per academic year, the maximum loan per term is $6,834 (summer) $6,833 (fall), and $6,833 (spring). A student who has enrolled in three terms per academic year is ineligible to request additional Federal Direct Loans by submitting a supplemental loan request form because the student has already been awarded the max annual loan amount of $20,500.

GRC MSW Program FAQ’s


How do I buy my books?
If your Stafford Loans are covering your tuition bill in full and you expect a refund, you may borrow against this expected refund to buy your books. You will need to fax a signed MSW Federal Title IV Student Authorization Statement to the Student Accounts Office at Nazareth College.

After this paperwork is complete, a book voucher is created that you may use to purchase books at the Brockport Barnes and Noble Bookstore ONLY.  

How and when will I receive my refund check?
If you have completed your Stafford Loan Entrance Counseling and your Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN), your loans will transmit to your Nazareth College Student Account within approximately 2 weeks of the beginning of the semester. Refund checks will be mailed to the current address on Nazareth’s system by the Student Accounts Office
