Financial Aid Terminology

This page is designed to explain some of the award letter terminology you might across as your explore your financial aid needs.

Grants

(Money that does not have to be repaid.)

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • ACG
  • National SMART Grant
  • Institutional grants
  • State-sponsored grants

Work-Study

(Money earned by working.)

  • On-campus (work for the school)
  • Off-campus (private nonprofit organization or a public agency)

Scholarships

(Money that does not have to be repaid.)

Any scholarships you informed the school about, as well as those the school has to offer, will be included on your award letter.

Loans

(Money borrowed that must be repaid.)

  • Federal Stafford Loan (subsidized)
  • Federal Stafford Loan (unsubsidized)
  •  Federal Parent PLUS Loan
  • Federal Graduate PLUS Loan
  • Federal Perkins Loan
  • State loan programs
  • Private loan programs
  • Other loan programs

 

Some advice

It’s usually in your best interest to accept subsidized Stafford and Perkins loans that are part of the aid package; the repayment terms are good and the government pays the interest while you’re in school. Unsubsidized loans—such as unsubsidized Stafford, PLUS loans, and private loans from a bank—should be studied more carefully to make sure the terms are acceptable.

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
