Bogus Federal Student Tax Scam

NOTE:  On May 27, 2016, the IRS released a statement warning students of a scam involving a bogus "Federal Student Tax".  As provided in their statement, the scam is currently presented as "phone calls" from IRS impersonators demanding payment for a non-existent tax, the "Federal Student Tax".  the IRS' statement includes further explanation of what the scam includes, how students and taxpayers can protect their information, and how the IRS is responding to the issue.  More information on the IRS statement can be found on the IRS website at by clicking here.

Federal Aid

Currently, the University requests all federal financial aid for students once per month.  If your FAFSA was not processed, rejected, selected for verification, or has outstanding financial aid requirements at the time of disbursement, you will not qualify for aid until your application and outstanding issues are resolved.

Federal student aid is awarded with the expectation that you will attend school for the entire period for which your financial aid was awarded.  If you receive a financial aid payment for a class or classes you have never attended, you must return that payment immediately to the University.

If you withdraw from all your classes before you have completed at least 60% of the semester, the University must determine what portion of your federal award(s) you are entitled to receive according to the Return to Title IV (R2T4) calculation.  If you have received, or the University has received on your behalf, more federal student aids funds than the R2T4 calculation allows, you will have to repay any award amount to which you were not entitled.

State Aid

The University typically requests eligible state aid recipients’ funds during the second part of the semester.

 

Martin University is authorized by the State of Indiana to offer educational programs beyond secondary education.
