International Students are eligible for Spring 2022 Student Emergency Funding. Submissions are reviewed and disbursed twice a week. Students are encouraged to sign up for electronic funds transfer (EFT) for a faster disbursement. Processing will start January 18, 2022, which will be extensive in volume, so please be patient as the Financial Aid Office assist’s students.
As an international student, you are considered Non-Pell or Non-FAFSA. Therefore, you can be awarded up to $1000 for Fall/Spring term and $500 for summer term. Funding will go directly to the student via EFT or by check.
Student Emergency Funding is communicated to students as the COVID Impact, but in the system, it is identified as, “American Rescue Plan Student Grant or CRRSAA Funding” for accounting purposes.
Any student is eligible for funding to cover any college related expense (tuition, fees, books and supplies, housing, medical, transportation…) or COVID related expense.
All students must be enrolled in the term that support is requested.
A student can receive support once a term due to limited funding. This is different from last term but those who received funding in Fall 2021 were sent a communication sharing the change in eligibility prior to winter break.
Multiple communications will start on January 18, 2022. Continuing this semester is the ability for students to apply using a QR code which are on fliers and posters distributed at campuses.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
To continue receiving visa support as an F-1 International Student, U.S. federal regulations require students to meet certain academic standards. At Madison College, these academic standards are referred to as Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). You will receive a communication at the end of each term to let you know your SAP status.
There are three SAP standards that must be met related to GPA, Completion Percentage, and Maximum Attempted credits.
SAP Standard 1 - GPA: You must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.
SAP Standard 2- Completion Percentage: You must complete 67% or more of all classes you attempt
SAP Standard 3 – Maximum Attempted Credits: You may not complete more than 150% of the number of credits needed to complete your program
On January 17, 2022, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday will mark the 27th anniversary of the national day of service. At Madison College, we believe in carrying the baton of Martin Luther King's work for racial equality. During the games, we will honor two members of the community who work to improve the community.
Performers include the Black Star Drumline & Dynamic Badgerettes and the Styles Defined Crew (SDC). The women's basketball team plays at 1 PM (CST), and the men's basketball team plays at 3 PM (CST).
