Academic Load and Tuition Calculation

Students seeking financial aid are advised to contact the Office of Financial Aid to determine eligibility.

In the Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Program, a full-time student is defined as a registered student who is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours.  A part-time student is defined as a registered student who is enrolled in less than 12 credit hours.

In the Doctor of Chiropractic Degree Program, students are charged a flat tuition rate if enrolled in 12 or more credit hours in a trimester. Students taking fewer than 12 credit hours are charged the per credit hour charge for the number of credit hours enrolled. Please see the preceding Tuition and Fee schedule for appropriate costs.

In the master’s degree programs, a full-time student is defined as a registered student who is enrolled in 9 or more credit hours, and a part-time student is defined as a registered student who is enrolled in less than 9 credit hours. Cost of tuition is charged per credit hour enrolled. Please see the preceding Tuition and Fee schedule for appropriate costs.

 In the Bachelor of Science Degree Programs, a full-time student is defined as a registered student who is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours, and a part-time student is defined as a registered student who is enrolled in less than 12 credit hours. Cost of tuition is charged per credit hour enrolled. Please see the preceding Tuition and Fee schedule for appropriate costs.

Payment of Tuition and Fees: All Students

Trimester tuition and fees are due in advance of the beginning of the trimester. Enrollment is validated when all tuition and fees have been paid and no outstanding indebtedness to Logan exists. Students are not admitted to classes without a validated registration, an approved schedule and evidence of an approved loan in process or payment in full.

The privileges of attending Logan are available to currently enrolled students who have met all the above guidelines.

Policy on Tuition Increase

The Board of Trustees and Logan Administration reserve the right to make changes in policy, admission requirements, and tuition and fees without notice or liability.

Financial Responsibility

All indebtedness to Logan must be cleared promptly. Student account balances that are past due result in encumbrances to future registration, issuance of transcripts, and conferral of degrees. No refund or reduction is allowed for absences.

Service Charge

There will be a charge of $10 for any check submitted to Logan that is not honored by a bank. In such cases, all subsequent payments to Logan must be in the form of a certified check or money order. In addition, the student will be required to pay the $100 late payment fee.

Special Courses

Special course tuition and fees are not refundable.

Refunds: All Students

A student who withdraws completely from the university, a program, or as a result of dismissal, will receive a refund of tuition according to the following schedule.

College of Health Science students who withdraw from a course(s) but do not withdraw completely from all courses will receive a refund based on the refund schedule below.

Trimester Courses:

  • 100% if withdrawal through Friday of the second week of the trimester.

  • 75% if withdrawal through Friday of the third week of the trimester.

  • 50% if withdrawal through Friday of the fourth week of the trimester.

  • 25% if withdrawal through Friday of the fifth week of the trimester.

  • No refund of tuition from the sixth week through the end of the trimester.

Session Courses:

  • 100% if withdrawal through Friday of the first week of the session.

  • 75% if withdrawal through Friday of the second week of the session.

  • 50% if withdrawal through Friday of the third week of the session.

  • 25% if withdrawal through the Friday of the fourth week of the session.

  • No refund of tuition from the fifth week through the end of the session.

When a student is entitled to a refund, the funds will be given to the student unless the institution has been required to return an unearned portion of Federal Title IV funds to the Federal Government.  If the refund is more than that which is to be returned, then the student will be given the remaining portion.  If the refund is less than that which is to be returned to the Federal Government, then the student will be billed for the difference.

Refund - Reduction in Course Load

If a student reduces his/her course load the reduction represents a change in enrollment status, not a withdrawal.

Doctor of Chiropractic: Reductions in course load that reduce credits to 9 or less thru Friday of the second week of the trimester will receive a 100 percent refund of the tuition based on the credits dropped below the 12 credit minimum for flat rate tuition. After the Friday of the second week, no refund will be given.

 

Financial Aid

General Statement

Financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and student employment. Logan participates in the Federal Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Work-Study, Perkins Loan, Direct Student Loan, GI Yellow Ribbon Program and various state grant programs.

All financial aid programs require students to be in good academic standing and making satisfactory academic progress toward the completion of their degree. Additionally, all aid programs require recipients to be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens.

Students are encouraged to limit borrowing as much as possible. Consequently, all applicants are expected to contribute toward their cost of education through self-help measures (i.e., student or parent savings and/or financial resources or part-time employment). Each applicant is required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other documents as outlined in the Financial Aid Application Packet.

Specific eligibility for particular aid programs is determined in accordance with federal regulations. Financial aid regulations and corresponding information are subject to change at any time.

Bachelor of Science Degree Programs

Financial aid is available in the form of grants and loans (to those who qualify) for students enrolled in the undergraduate Bachelor of Science Degree Program. Eligibility is based not only upon financial need, but also enrollment status. Students with a bachelor’s degree enrolled in prep coursework to be admitted to the Doctor of Chiropractic or Masters programs will qualify for loans only for a maximum of three trimesters.

Specific eligibility for particular aid programs is determined in accordance with federal regulations on an individual basis. Please see the Office of Financial Aid to discuss your needs.

For information regarding types of financial aid, please refer to the Logan Website http://www.logan.edu/admissions/financial-aid-scholarships  . You may also speak with a Financial Aid Advisor.
 

 

Return of Title IV (federal aid) Policy

If a federal financial aid recipient withdraws from all classes prior to reaching the 60% point in the trimester, some (or possibly all) of the federal grant and/or loan assistance disbursed to the student’s account must be returned to the U.S. Department of Education. Logan University is required to determine the earned and unearned portions of Title IV aid as of the date the student ceased attendance based on the amount of time the student spent in attendance.

According to the exact number of calendar days that elapse from the first day of classes until you withdraw (or your last day of attendance, whichever is earlier), you are considered to have earned a portion of the total federal grant and/or loan aid that was disbursed to your student account for the trimester. The unearned portion of this aid is the amount that must be returned.

The Office of Financial Aid will send you an exit packet through the mail. Included will be notification of the amount returned. This may result in a balance due to the university. You will be expected to determine a payment arrangement with the Office of Bursar.

Please note that the calculation of the unearned portion of your federal financial aid is a completely separate process from any refund of tuition. Further details of any refund of tuition may be found in the Academic Catalog.

Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)


The Higher Education Act (HEA) requires that a student maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) in the student’s program of study to be eligible to receive Title IV funds. Repeated courses as well as academic credits transferred from another school are included in the evaluation of a student’s compliance with this policy. Logan students who wish to be considered for financial aid must maintain SAP as set forth in this policy.

Federal regulation mandates that a student’s SAP be measured at least annually. A student may lose their eligibility for aid if they are not doing well in classes, if they frequently withdraw from classes, and/or if it is taking them a very long time to finish their degree. It is Logan’s policy to review a student’s academic performance at the end of each trimester if they are receiving financial aid.

SAP is measured in two ways, qualitative and quantitative (pace). Qualitative is a measure of a student’s grade point average (GPA). Quantitative, or pace, measures a student’s progress through the program to make certain the student is on track to complete the degree program within the maximum time allowed. These measures apply to students matriculating in all Logan University Programs degree programs.

All students are classified as meeting SAP requirements when they first enroll at Logan.  Students who meet the below criteria for GPA, PACE and length of program will continue on SAP requirements and will continue to be eligible for aid.

Qualitative: Grade Point Average (GPA)

Undergraduate and Doctor of Chiropractic students must achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better at the end of each trimester of enrollment. Graduate students in the Master’s must achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better at the end of each trimester of enrollment.  Doctor of Health Professions Education must achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better at the end of each trimester of enrollment.

Quantitative: Maximum Time Frame or PACE

A maximum length of time to complete an academic program is 150 percent of the published length of the educational program. A student must complete (receive a passing grade) a minimum of 67 percent of attempted credits each term to maintain PACE.

  • Any grade counted as attempted hours on the transcript.
  • Hours attempted include repeated courses, withdrawn courses, and incomplete courses.
  • If a course is dropped within the designated add/drop period, it is not counted toward attempted hours.
  • Hours attempted include transfer credit courses.
  • Periods of enrollment for which the student does not receive financial aid are counted toward the maximum number of enrollment periods.

Length of Program

The maximum number of enrollment periods to receive financial aid as a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree student is 15. 

The maximum number of credit hours to receive financial aid as a Master’s of Science Degree student is 59 attempted credit hours.  Master’s of Science students must finish coursework within five calendar years from the date of initial enrollment. 

The maximum number of credit hours to receive financial aid as a Bachelor of Science Degree student is 183 attempted credit hours

Students with a bachelor’s degree that need to enroll in prerequisite or preparatory coursework for admission in to the masters or doctor of chiropractic degree programs have financial aid eligibility for one consecutive 12-month period (three trimesters) beginning on the first day of the enrollment period.

Financial Aid Warning

A student placed in financial aid warning status has failed to meet the minimum requirements of satisfactory academic progress and must meet the minimum standards by the end of the warning trimester of enrollment in order to continue to be eligible for federal financial aid. A student must be enrolled at a minimum half time status during the warning trimester.

When a student is placed in a warning status they will receive a letter of notification from the Associate Director of Financial Aid. The student will be encouraged to meet with the Academic Success Coach and the Office of Student Affairs during the warning trimester to assess academic progress and receive assistance in developing effective learning strategies.

Financial Aid Suspension

A student’s financial aid is suspended if he/she has not met the standards of academic progress within one trimester immediately following a term of financial aid warning status or is unsuccessful in their financial aid probation appeal attempt.

Financial Aid Probation

A student whose financial aid has been suspended may appeal to be placed in a financial aid probation status. Approval of the probation status allows the student to continue to receive financial aid for one trimester or as outlined in the academic plan.  Appeals are considered by Logan within guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). DOE guidelines stipulate the student must explain the special circumstance that caused  him/her to fail to meet the minimum standards of academic progress, and the student must also explain what has changed that would enable him/her to regain good academic standing. [See instructions for appealing a financial aid suspension below]

Appeals should be submitted to the Associate Director of Financial Aid. The appeal will be reviewed by a committee. Once the committee has made a decision, the student will be notified by email and letter. Committee decisions regarding the appeal are final.

Academic Plan

Students on financial aid probation may be required to follow an academic plan approved by Logan.  Students will continue on financial aid probation as long as they meet the standards of academic progress outlined in the academic plan.  Students who do not meet the standards of academic progress in the academic plan will be placed on financial aid suspension and will lose financial aid eligibility until they regain satisfactory academic progress.

Appealing a Financial Aid Suspension

A student whose financial aid was suspended and feels there were mitigating circumstances beyond their control that resulted in failure to achieve the SAP requirements may appeal.

Mitigating circumstances as defined by the U.S. Department of Education (34.668.34):

  • Death of a relative
  • Serious illness or injury to the student or
  • Other special circumstance

Supporting documentation of the above must be included with the letter of appeal.

In addition to the above, the appeal must include:

  • An explanation as to why the student failed to maintain SAP
  • An explanation regarding what has changed in the student’s situation that will allow the student to demonstrate SAP at either the end of the warning trimester or during, or, at the end of a specified academic plan
  •  A statement regarding their plan to achieve SAP

Students should be prepared to seek other options if the appeal is not approved or if they do not wish to appeal their financial aid suspension. It is important to point out that unless a student is academically dismissed, a student denied financial is generally may continue attending by funding their educational costs themselves.

Changing Degree Programs

When a student changes degree programs, the credit and grades which do not count toward the new degree will not be included in the satisfactory academic progress determination of the new program.
