Gift Aid

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a federal program of entitlement basic to all other student financial aid.   This grant is awarded only to undergraduate students pursuing a first bachelor's degree, and enrolled in at least one course. The program is based on a need analysis formula, which considers family income and assets, size of family, number of children attending post-secondary schools, and other factors. The formula is applied when application is made with FAFSA and notification amounts are transmitted to our office electronically with the student's FAFSA file.

The Pell Grant will be disbursed in 2 (two) equal payments. The first half will be applied to the student’s Account at the beginning of the enrollment period.  The second half will be applied at the midpoint of the enrollment period.

Criswell Scholarships

The criteria for credit completion, GPA, and award amounts of each scholarship are detailed in the scholarship award message.

Criswell Scholarships can only be used as tuition assistance and are applied directly to the student’s account for the current term. Criswell College scholarships are non- transferable.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Students who wish to be considered for a Criswell College Scholarship, and who qualify for federal aid, are to complete a FAFSA. The FAFSA is required for all need-based scholarship programs, and unless specified differently by the donor, “need” is determined by the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) input requested. The FAFSA is not required for those students who do not qualify for federal aid (such as International Students).  Students who qualify for federal aid, but who do not complete the FAFSA are not guaranteed receipt of merit-based scholarships. Students who do not complete the FAFSA, who are experiencing extenuating circumstances, may submit a formal appeal to the Scholarship Committee in order to be considered for merit-based scholarships. The appeal should clearly document the circumstances impacting the student and outline the requested outcome. Faculty advisors and other “witnesses” may submit information, which may be considered by the committee. Upon review of a case, the committee will vote. The final outcome of an appeal may never over extend budgeted funds for a specific scholarship for a specific student.

***All scholarship awards are subject to the following conditions. Any student accepting a scholarship must accept the following conditions:

  1. All requirements associated with receipt of a scholarship are to be made available to potential recipients. The Criswell College website is a resource for this information.
  2. The Scholarship Committee reserves the right to review or cancel awards due to changes in financial standing, academic, or program status, if such criteria are specified as a requirement for receipt of a scholarship. All scholarship students must be in good standing with the Criswell College academic policies.
  3. All awards are tentative subject to receipt of funds by Criswell College and final verification of academic records and acceptance to the College.
  4. Some awards require full-time enrollment (minimum 12 hours per undergraduate and 9 hours per graduate terms); specifications are provided for each award.
  5. Students receiving scholarship awards who withdraw from the college must notify the Scholarship Committee. Withdrawals count as a semester of eligibility.
  6. If the scholarship is renewable, renewal will be automatic contingent upon all conditions of the award being met. A student may receive a scholarship for up to four years (eight terms total), unless a formal appeal is submitted and approved.
  7. Unless otherwise noted, scholarship awards are disbursed in one-half amounts and applied towards fees during each registration fee payment period (fall and spring, unless specifically indicated for this purpose, awards are not available for summer terms). Award amounts in excess of fees will be made available to the students via check disbursement from the Business Office.
  8. All scholarship recipients must send a thank you note to the donors, and meet other expectations outlined by the donors.

Outside Scholarships

If you are receiving a scholarship from a source other than Criswell College, it must be processed through the Financial Aid Office.

Please direct your donor to send your scholarship check to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office at 4010 Gaston Avenue, Dallas, TX 75246-1537. Along with the check, please ask your donor to give us instructions on rules and regulations required of the recipient in order to receive the scholarship. We can track these rules through our office to ensure the donor’s requests are being met. Once the check is received, it will be processed and put on the student’s account in a timely manner. During our peak time (August and January), please allow 2 weeks to see the funds disburse to the student’s account. If this time frame causes any problems, please contact our office.

Cost of Attendance

Criswell College policy does not permit a student to receive institutional funds in conjunction with other outside funds in excess of that student’s Cost of Attendance (COA).

Criswell College scholarship recipients cannot exceed their Cost of Attendance in institutional funds. The combination of scholarships, federal aid, and outside assistance cannot exceed the COA figure. If a combination of all sources of aid exceeds the student’s COA, Criswell College will reduce aid to keep the student within his/her COA.

We will start by reducing federal financial aid, such as loans, but we may ultimately need to reduce institutional scholarships as well.

(Scholarships have no impact on Pell Grant eligibility or amounts.) Institutional scholarships awarded above a student’s Cost of Attendance will be canceled and awarded to other deserving Criswell College students. All Criswell College students are provided an estimated COA.

The COA is an estimated calculation of a student’s tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and miscellaneous/personal expenses for the period of enrollment. The COA is reviewed each year.  Some scholarship programs may specify “direct cost only,” including costs for tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board; these awards will not generate a refund.

Eligibility for Renewable Scholarships

Renewable awards are contingent upon maintaining a minimum CGPA. In most cases students are required to maintain a certain GPA, complete a certain number of credits, and in some cases remain in an eligible major in order to renew their scholarship. Scholarship recipients must maintain the required CGPA. Grades are subject to review on a term-by-term basis. Unless specified otherwise by the donor, any scholarship recipient who earns a term CGPA lower than a 2.5 for undergraduate and 3.0 for graduates will automatically be placed on scholarship probation. Students placed on scholarship probation must register with the FAO for a scholarship retention program. Two terms below, or a cumulative CGPA lower than a 2.5 for undergraduates and 3.0 for graduates will result in forfeiture of the scholarship.

Students receiving renewable scholarships are evaluated at the end of each spring semester to determine if they are eligible for continuation of the scholarship into the next academic year. The Scholarship Committee will check to see if students has met minimum criteria while receiving the award during the previous academic year. Students will need to review the award message attached to the scholarship award and must be familiar with the renewal criteria of their scholarship.

If a student does not meet the minimum requirements to renew his/her scholarship, the scholarship will not be offered for the upcoming academic year and he/she have the option to appeal.  Most successful appeals document extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control which significantly impact the student’s academic record. If a student has extenuating circumstances that impact his/her scholarship renewal eligibility, an appeal letter can be submitted to the FAO which explains and documents the circumstances.

Appeals are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee. The committee reviews each appeal packet to determine if extenuating circumstances prevented the student from meeting scholarship standards. Committee members are aware of the rigors of college studies and strive to approve appeals for those students who demonstrate they will be successful in the academic environment. Not all appeals are approved, and submitting a completed appeal packet does not guarantee approval. Forms need to be received by the following deadlines;

Deadlines to submit appeals are as follows:

  • Fall term September 15th
  • Spring term February 15th
  • Summer terms June 15th

Deferring Scholarships

In some circumstances, Criswell College will defer a student’s scholarship(s) if a student's attendance at Criswell College is interrupted for medical reasons, military deployment, church service, or other selected reasons, provided that a student meets certain criteria.

For a student’s scholarship(s) to be deferred, the student must attend at least one full-time semester prior to his/her departure and meet the minimum criteria for renewal of his/her scholarship(s) during the semester(s) he/she attends prior to leaving.

To request a deferral, a student should submit a letter to the FAO, prior to leaving Criswell College, requesting the scholarship be held for a specified period of time. The letter must include when the student is leaving, when he/she plans to return, and the reason for the deferment request. Also with the letter, the student must submit supporting documentation. The FAO will submit the request to the Scholarship Committee for approval or denial. The Committee can make the decision that scholarship(s) can be held for up to two academic years and approval is dependent on the availability of remaining scholarship funds. Enrollment at another College or University during the deferment period will result in an automatic cancellation of the scholarship.

Eligibility for Repeated Courses

Most Criswell College scholarships require students to be enrolled in at least 12 credits for undergraduate and 9 credits graduate students. When counting credits to determine scholarship eligibility for that semester, many repeated classes will be excluded from the scholarship eligible credit count. A student can be paid on a repeated class IF that class was never previously passed. Previously passed courses are those with grades of D- or better for undergraduate and C- or better for graduate students if taken pass/fail. A student can be paid for repeating a previously passed course as long as it is the first repeat of the course.

Students receiving financial aid who withdraw or stop attending will, in most cases, be required to return a portion of financial aid received.

The Higher Education Act, as reauthorized and signed into law on October 7, 1998, established the Return of Title IV Funds Policy. The concept behind the policy is that the college and the student are allowed to retain only the amount of Title IV (Federal) aid that is earned. If a student withdraws or stops attending classes, a portion of the aid received is considered to be unearned and must be returned to the Title IV programs from which it was received.

For Title IV purposes, the last date of attendance is one of the following: the date the formal withdrawal process begins or the date the student otherwise gives official notice of intent to withdraw.  The student must in-person submit the drop/withdrawal form signed approval of the assigned academic advisor, the Financial Aid Office, the Business Office, and the Registrar’s Office. 

If the student is not able to complete the process in-person the student can submit his/her request via U.S. mail or e-mail. The request must be received by the last day to drop a course(s) no later than November 7, 2014 for the fall term and March 13, 2014 for the spring terms. Criswell College uses the last documented date of attendance in an academically-related activity. If a student attends through 60 percent of the term, all Title IV Aid is considered earned.

1. The first step is a series of formulas to determine the amount of aid which must be returned. Following the determination of the last date of attendance, the school must calculate the number of days attended and the total number of days in the term; weekends count and any period of no classes that is five days in length or greater is excluded. Days attended are then divided by days in the term to calculate percentage completed. That percentage is multiplied by total aid for which the student is eligible to determine the amount of aid earned (% completed x total aid = earned aid). Total aid – earned aid = unearned aid (aid to be returned).

2. The next step is for the school to determine total institutional charges and multiply that figure by the percentage of unearned aid (100% - % completed = % unearned). It makes no difference which type of resource actually paid the school bill; the law assumes that Title IV aid goes first to pay institutional charges. Institutional charges x % unearned = Amount returned by school (up to amount indicated as unearned in Step 1).

The school must then return the amount of unearned aid up to the maximum received, to each of the Title IV programs in the following order:

  • Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  • Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan
  • Federal Pell Grant

3. The school then calculates the amount for which the student is responsible by subtracting the amount returned by the school from the total amount which is unearned. That remaining amount is the student’s share and is allocated in the same order as stated above. Total amount unearned – amount returned by school = $ for which student is responsible.

Once the school determines dollar amounts and which individual programs must be repaid, the student will be notified of any amounts he/she owes. Funds that must be returned by the student to the loan programs can be paid in full in accordance with normal loan repayment terms. For grant dollars that must be repaid, the amount due from a student is limited to the amount by which the original grant overpayment amount due from the student exceeds half of the total Title IV grant funds received by the student. Unpaid balances will be turned over to the Department of Education for collection. Until overpayments are repaid or satisfactory arrangements to repay have been made, students will be ineligible for further Title IV aid. 

This policy is totally separate from the institutional refund policy. Unpaid balances due to Criswell College that result from amounts returned to Title IV programs and other sources of aid will be charged back to the student. If a student does not begin attendance in all classes or ceases attendance during the 100% refund period, aid may have to be reduced to reflect appropriate status prior to calculating Return of Title IV Funds.

Before withdrawing or stopping attendance in classes, the student should be aware of the proper procedure for withdrawing from classes and the consequences of either withdrawing or stopping attendance.  Any questions on Return of Title IV Funds may be addressed to the Director of Financial Aid. Questions regarding withdrawal should be addressed to the Registrar’s Office.

Dropping or withdrawing from a course(s) after a term's drop/add period

A student should contact the Criswell College Financial Aid Office (FAO) regarding its policy on withdrawal and how that policy may affect the scholarship. If a student drops or withdraws hours that were disbursed from a Criswell Scholarship Award, he/she will be responsible for reimbursing Criswell College for the cost of course(s) dropped or withdrawn.  

Complete Withdraw Effect on Scholarships

If a student completely withdraws from Criswell College prior to the add/drop day of the term, all Criswell College scholarships will be canceled from the student’s account.  If the student received a refund that included the scholarships, his/her will be required to pay that refund back to Criswell College.  If the student received a scholarship from an outside entity, we will notify the outside entity that the student has withdrawn from the College. If the outside entity would like to have their scholarship money back, they will need to work directly with the student in that process. (See Criswell Refund Policy)

If a student completely withdraws from Criswell College after the close of the add/drop term, the student can still receive their scholarship to help cover any of the charges incurred for their time at Criswell. If the student’s fees are refunded or waived through a fee appeal, the scholarship will be canceled and the student will not be allowed a refund from the scholarship funds. If this results in a balance owed to Criswell, the student is required to pay that money back to the College. Scholarship funds paid to an account,
regardless of whether a student has withdrawn, are considered payment for a term of eligibility, depending on the award, withdrawal may negate a students’ eligibility for renewal of a scholarship.

If a student receives financial aid, which includes the Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loan (subsidized and unsubsidized) depending on the types and amounts of aid received, Criswell College may be required to return a certain portion of funds, and the student may be required to repay a portion of the funds. If the student owes a repayment of Title IV funds as a result of the calculation, he/she cannot receive future federal financial aid funds at any school until repayment has been made.  In addition the student’s records will be placed on financial hold. This means he/she will not be permitted to register for classes or receive transcripts until the balance is paid.

Any federal loan amount owed by the student is to be repaid under the terms of the promissory note. The student may owe an outstanding balance to Criswell College.  Once we return funds required through the federal Return of Title IV Funds calculation, due to a drop/withdrawal during the academic term(s), the student is responsible for the amount returned to the Department of Education by the College.  Scholarship awards cannot be used to satisfy the debt the student owes to the College. (See Criswell R2T4 Office Policy)

It is in the student’s best interest to repay the cost of the dropped/withdrawn hours prior to the end of the academic term in which the drop/withdrawal took place. The student will be ineligible to renew his/her Criswell Scholarship Award for any subsequent academic year until repayment or a satisfactory arrangement to reimburse the institution is made.  After the student has made repayment on the Return of Title IV funds, of the unearned credit hours, the student may make a written appeal to the Scholarship Committee and submit the request in the FAO for hours dropped or withdrawn, due to verifiable illness or emergency, after the last day of the drop/add period.

The FAO may make a recommendation to the Scholarship Committee.
The Scholarship Committee may accept or deny the recommendation for exception. Non-refunded hours may affect the student's renewal eligibility.

Disclaimer: The fees, procedures, and policies listed above supersede those published previously and are subject to change at any time when required by changes in federal regulations. This policy reflects the College’s good faith effort to interpret federal regulations that have a bearing on such matters.
