STATE STUDENT COMPLAINT PROCESS

(1) This rule applies to all state student financial assistance programs administered by the Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA), Florida Department of Education (the department).
(2) Actions prior to appeal. An applicant who believes that OSFA has made an error in determining the applicant’s eligibility to receive a state student financial aid award, or has failed, in error, to transfer an award from one eligible institution to another when the applicant has met the deadline for requesting transfer of an award, should first seek to resolve the matter by contacting the program section of the OSFA and providing documentation necessary to resolve the issue.
(3) Circumstances for appeal. If the applicant believes that either of the situations identified in subsection (2) of this rule was not resolved with the program section of the OSFA, the applicant may file a formal written appeal for review by the Director, OSFA, using the following procedure:
(a) Submit a written appeal to the Director, Office of Student Financial Assistance, Florida Department of Education, 325 West Gaines Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0400. The written appeal must fully describe the nature of the error the applicant believes has been made and must contain documentation which supports the applicant’s claim of eligibility to receive a state student financial aid award or to have the award transferred to another eligible institution. A copy of the notice of the applicant’s ineligibility shall be attached to the written appeal.
(b) The written appeal shall be postmarked within thirty (30) days of the issue date of the notice of the award denial or notice that the award was not transferred. An applicant who fails to file a timely appeal waives the right of appeal.
(c) The Director of OSFA will respond to the applicant in writing within thirty (30) days of receiving the appeal.
(d) An applicant who wishes to appeal the decision of the Director of OSFA may request further review by an appeals committee in accordance with subsection (4) of this rule.

If an applicant continues to believe an error has been made after receiving the Director’s response to an appeal submitted in accordance with subsection (3) of this rule, the applicant may request further review by an appeals committee. The request for committee review must be submitted to the Director of the OSFA in writing within twenty (20) days of the date of the Director’s response to the applicant’s formal written appeal.

NET PRICE CALCULATOR
In accordance with the Higher Education Act of 2008 (HEOA), Marion Technical College (MTC) must post a net price calculator that uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to prospective students and their families based on a student’s individual circumstances. Please note that these estimates apply to first-time full-time students only. These estimates do not represent a final determination, actual award of financial assistance or a final net price; they are estimates only based on the cost of attendance and financial aid provided to similar students in the 2015-2016 school year. Cost of attendance and financial aid availability change from year to year. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, MTC, or the state of Florida.
Not all students receive financial aid. In the 2015-2016 school year approx. 80% of our full-time students enrolling for the first time received grant/scholarship aid. Students must complete the FAFSA using www.fafsa.gov to determine their eligibility for federal aid. MTC does not participate in any type of loan programs.
