Financial Aid FAQ

FAFSA

I have questions about the FAFSA

There are new changes in place to make the FAFSA process easier. We have created the FAFSA Simplification FAQ to help you prepare for these changes. Visit the FAFSA Simplification FAQ for more information.

You can complete the FAFSA online at the FAFSA website. If you have never filed a FAFSA, click "Start Here."

You will want to begin by creating an FSA ID. An FSA ID is your username and password for filling out your FAFSA application and your electronic signature for signing and submitting the FAFSA.

For a walkthrough on how to complete the most recent FAFSA, please use this link http://studentaid.gov/apply-for-aid/fafsa/filling-out

If you answered 'No' to all of the questions on the FAFSA, you are still considered dependent even if you live on your own and support yourself. You still must answer the questions about your parents if you’re considered a dependent student.

If you have no contact with your parents and don’t know where they live, or you’ve left home due to an unsafe situation, fill out the FAFSA form and then immediately get in touch with the financial aid office
A dependent student cannot be considered independent based only on parents refusing to help with the FAFSA. If you are unable to add information on the FAFSA form, the application will be considered “rejected,” and you might not be able to receive any federal student aid. The FAFSA instructions will tell you what to do if you are in this situation and your Financial Aid Advisor can help
The FAFSA uses what is called Prior/Prior year tax information. That means the taxes used for the FAFSA aren't from last year but the year before that. For example, the 2023-2024 FAFSA uses the 2021 taxes, not the 2022 taxes.

Due to the IRS allowing for extensions, the previous year's tax information is sometimes unavailable. Using prior prior year will allow more students and families to complete the FAFSA using income information imported directly from the IRS because the taxes will have already been filed and processed.
The FAFSA form was designed to provide a picture of the family's financial strength as of the day you fill it out. Since parents and spouses contribute financially to the family, their income needs to be included.

For Example, if you were married in 2022 and the FAFSA requires 2020 taxes, you still are required to add your spouse's information from the 2020 tax year.
If you are expecting a child and you will provide at least 50% of the support for that child, you can answer 'Yes' to the question on the FAFSA stating, "Do you now have—or will you have—children who will receive more than half (50%) of their support from you". You can update your FAFSA to 'yes' after it is determining that you are pregnant.
If your marital status changes, you must speak to the financial aid office to determine whether you may update your current FAFSA form.

If you have not completed the FAFSA, your Married/Divorced status is based on the day you fill out the FAFSA.
Herzing's school code is 009621. Adding the school code will show Herzing's Madison, WI Campus –this is the correct campus no matter where you live.

The first campus approved to use Federal Aid was in Madison, Wisconsin. Because of this, any campus established after this will use the Madison campus as the parent campus.
You are eligible if you meet the following criteria:
• You are a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
• You have a valid social security number. (Exceptions include residents from the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, or the Republic of Palau).
• You have a high school diploma, GED, or have passed an exam approved by the U.S. Department of Education.
• You are enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a regular student working toward a degree or certificate in an eligible program at or through Herzing University.
• You must not owe a refund on a federal grant or be in default on a federal student loan.
• You must demonstrate financial need (except for unsubsidized Stafford Loans)
The FAFSA is not required for students to attend Herzing. However, if you wish to explore federal funding options, the FAFSA is required. Some Herzing students fill it out to receive state or federal grant funding. Please be aware that filling out the FAFSA will not affect your credit and does not mean you are using federal funding.
The Student Aid Report shows the information you provided on your FAFSA form, your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) figure, and your Data Release Number (DRN). Review this information carefully. If you need to make any corrections, go to make a correction to revise your processed FAFSA.

Your Financial Aid Advisor may require you to provide the school with your DRN. This request will be made through the documents section of the Financial Aid Portal.
As soon as you have decided to further your education, you should start the financial aid process by creating your FSAID and then begin filling out your FAFSA form.

The FAFSA becomes available on October 1 each year. We recommend that all students complete the FAFSA as soon as it is available.

Before you receive a Direct Loan, you must complete Entrance Counseling.

The Entrance Counseling is a short course about Federal Loan funding and other programs. If you have completed it at a previous school, you are not required to do it again.

To complete the entrance counseling, go to: http://studentaid.gov/entrance-counseling/

For undergraduates and graduates using Subsidized and Unsubsidized loan funding, please complete the Entrance Counseling for Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans found in the Undergraduate section or chosen in the Graduate Section.

When doing the course, they will ask if you want to notify a school. Please search for Herzing in the state of Wisconsin under the city of Madison.

The first campus approved to use Federal Aid was in Madison, Wisconsin. Because of this, any campus established after this will use the Madison campus as the parent campus.
There are several reasons why we may be asking for your transcripts, including:

• The federal government flagged a student for what is called Unusual Enrollment History. In this situation, we need the transcripts to verify the grades earned at schools attended in prior years.
• Using certain military benefits. The VA requires schools to collect transcripts to ensure students are using benefits for the same class only once.
• Eligibility for specific State or other funding sources.

If you are unsure of the reason for the transcript request, you should contact your Financial Aid Advisor.
Before you receive a Direct Loan, you must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN).

The MPN is your agreement with the Federal Government to pay back the Federal Loans. It is good for a total of 10 years if it is used, 1 year if not used, and must be completed again if it expires.

The MPN can be completed by going to this link: http://studentaid.gov/mpn/

For undergraduates and graduates using Subsidized and Unsubsidized loan funding, please complete the MPN for Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans. This one can be found in the Undergraduate section, or chosen in the Graduate Section.

For Graduate students who have used up their Unsubsidized loan eligibility or want to use only Grad Plus loans, please log into the Graduate section and select the PLUS MPN.

When completing the MPN, they will ask you if you want to notify a school. Please search for Herzing in the state of Wisconsin under the city of Madison. The first campus that was approved to use Federal Aid was in Madison, Wisconsin. Because of this, any campus established after this will use the Madison campus as the parent campus.
If a student is employed with one of our partners, this documentation is requested in order to award the student our partnership grant.

Please upload a copy of your most recent pay stub, a copy of your ID badge that shows an expiration date, or you can email your financial aid advisor from your work email.
The Verification worksheet is a smart form located in your Student Financial Aid Portal in the document section. It is used to verify the number of people in the household and income earned.
This document is requested when students indicate that they are or were in the military. The student becomes eligible for the HU Military Appreciation Grant when approved documents are received.

Acceptable documentation includes the DD-214 Member 4 or Service 2, the most recent Leave and Earning Statement (LES) or a copy of the student's active duty orders.
This document is required for us to verify your identity as part of a process called Verification. The request for this document doesn't mean that you did anything wrong, it just means that the Federal Government needs us to verify your identity before we can award you federal aid.

There are two ways of completing your Proof of Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose (SEP form).
The first option is to make an appointment at any Herzing location to complete the form in person.
The second option is to take the document to a notary. You will fill out the first full page in front of the Notary and they will complete the second page. If you use this option, you will need to mail the original to Herzing University at the address at the bottom of page 2.
The scholarship waiver is a document requested when a student wishes to remove a scholarship in order to receive excess loan funding (stipend).
Sometimes your Financial Aid advisor will need more information about specific situations. If there is something that we need you to explain in detail we will add a needed student statement to your documents section.

In the needed document area, the reason for the student statement will be listed. Please review what your advisor has asked you to explain and contact them for any additional assistance.
This document is requested when a student decides to opt out of receiving textbooks through Herzing.

You can only remove the textbooks at the beginning of the semester and before you validate your books in the bookstore.
This document tells Herzing how you would like us to use your federal aid. Keep in mind that you can change your answers at any time.

In some cases, a credit (more funds than what is needed for tuition and fees) can appear on your student account, and your answers on this form tell us what you would like us to do with that credit.

Answering "Yes" to these questions allows Herzing to apply a credit that may occur on your student account towards certain future charges. It will not affect your stipend, it will just prevent a potential payment plan. It also allows Herzing to reduce your overall loan balance by returning federal loans no longer needed due to a schedule change or revision back to the lender. This will reduce your overall loan debt.

Answering "no" to the questions tells us that you wish us to send any credit back to you, regardless of any future charges. This option may require additional loan funding or a payment plan in the future to pay for uncovered charges.
We want to ensure that we can have your financial aid package ready as quickly as possible. This is why we place a deadline on your documents. The faster we can get the documents we need, the faster your financial aid can be processed accurately.
Being selected for verification is very common, don't panic! Verification is a random selection by the Department of Education to spot-check information on the FAFSA and verify it for accuracy.
Not everyone is selected for verification, and not everyone has to verify the same items.

If you have been selected for verification, Herzing must obtain additional information to process your financial aid application. Please log into the Financial Aid Site using your individual Username and Password to view the required documents. The Financial Aid Site will list the status of your documents, including those needed for verification.

If you have used the Data Retrieval Tool in the FAFSA, the Taxes are usually not needed. There are cases, however, where your Financial Aid Advisor may need to collect your taxes, and if they are needed, you will be notified.

Usually, you do not need your tax transcripts; we can use your 1040. If you use the 1040, please make sure that you attach Schedule 1, 2 or 3 if they were part of the return. Please keep in mind that your Financial Aid Advisor may request additional information if needed

The FAFSA uses what is called Prior/Prior year tax information. That means the taxes used for the FAFSA aren't from last year but the year before. For example, the 2023-2024 FAFSA uses the 2021 taxes, not the 2022 taxes. You will see this listed in the documents section of the portal.

A valid unexpired government-issued photo identification (photo ID) can include, but is not limited to, the following:

U.S. Passport;
Driver’s license;
Non-driver’s identification card;
Other state-issued ID;
Permanent Resident Card or Resident Alien Card (I-551, can be photocopied for Title IV purposes);
Certificate of Naturalization if it contains a recognizable photo, even though it does not have an expiration date;
Inmate ID from a government facility, even if it does not have an expiration date; or
State-issued voter ID, even if it does not have an expiration date.

The following documents are not acceptable for completing verification:

A government-issued photo ID from a foreign country not previously listed;
Military IDs, because there is a general prohibition on photocopying military IDs;
Student IDs, not even those issued by state schools; or
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program IDs (SNAP IDs) with or without a picture because they should not be photocopied.

The Department of Education does not require that an ID have a date. However, if there is a date, it must not be expired. If your ID is expired, you may use a different approved ID, or you will have to get your existing ID renewed.
The original needs to be mailed to the Herzing only if you use the notary option. If you can complete the SEP at a Herzing Campus, you will not need to use a notary and will not need to mail the original.

Please mail to:
Herzing University
ATTN: Financial Aid Department
275 W. Wisconsin Ave., Ste. 210
Milwaukee, WI 53203
Before mailing, we recommend scanning or taking a picture of both pages to upload to your Financial Aid Documents section. We also recommend mailing with a tracking number.
Notarizing the SEP means that you have completed the form in person before a Notary Public. A notary public is a person appointed by the state government to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing various official fraud-deterrent acts related to signing important documents.
By completing the document before a Notary Public, you are ensuring that your identity is confirmed.

Notaries can be found in a variety of places. The most common locations would be UPS stores, libraries, banks, AAA, or law firms. You can use this link to assist you in your search: http://www.nationalnotary.org/resources-for/public/find-a-notary

Online notaries are not allowed to be used. National leaders in financial aid administration have clarified with the Department of Education that they do not recognize online notaries as acceptable for this document.
If you do not submit the required document(s), there is a risk that your enrollment could be cancelled. We want to ensure that you have funding to cover your classes, and any needed documentation will assist in that.

If you are a student currently taking classes, failure to submit documentation could result in a payment plan being put in place to cover the cost of your tuition. If we don't have a way to pay for tuition, your account could get locked and the progress you have made in classes will slow.
This document tells Herzing how you would like us to use your federal aid. Keep in mind that you can change your answers at any time.

The U.S. Department of Education has rules to prevent fraud and abuse in Federal Aid Programs by identifying students with "unusual enrollment histories". Unusual enrollment history is when a student enrolls at a school, receives federal student aid, fails to complete any classes and then goes to another school.

Some students with an unusual enrollment history have legitimate reasons for attending multiple schools. However, the enrollment history requires the Financial Aid Office to review your file to determine future Federal financial aid eligibility. If selected by the Department of Education, this must be resolved before you will receive financial aid.

Transcripts can be sent to Herzing in a few different ways:

Official Transcripts
Transcripts must be sent directly from your former institution to Herzing University to be deemed official. Transcripts can be sent electronically to registrar@sjzheshengtang.com or via mail to:
Herzing University Registrar's Office

To begin, you will need to submit a grade report, unofficial or official transcripts from each school requested and listed in the document section of your Financial Aid Portal. Please ensure the submission has grades earned and the dates of the courses. Your Financial Aid Advisor may request additional documentation on a case-by-case basis, and they will notify you if they do.

If you can't get the required documents, please contact your financial aid advisor right away to discuss the next steps.
Unofficial transcripts will generally have all information needed to complete the Unusual Enrollment History requirements.

Many schools will allow you to download a copy of the transcripts right from your student portal. Sometimes, calling your previous school's registration department may be necessary. If your last school is closed, please let your Financial Aid Advisor know to get your next steps.

Students will be mailed a physical copy to the address on file, they also can obtain it through the ECSI website at http://heartland.ecsi.net.

When the 1098-T forms are ready, students will receive an email notification.

Funding Options

What are my funding options?

Whether utilizing the Federal Title IV Program by completing the U.S. Department of Education’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or using alternative fund sources such as outside grants and scholarships, military benefits, tuition assistance or alternative lending, your Financial Aid Advisor will discuss your personal options with you to make sure that we can get the best option available to you.

Related Questions

If you have filled out the FAFSA, and have not hit the lifetime cap for federal loans, and are not in default, you could be eligible for Federal Loans. More information can be found here: http://studentaid.gov/understand-aid/types/loans/subsidized-unsubsidized

Your financial aid package will be reviewed by your financial aid advisor for accuracy and then will send you an offer notification with what funding you are eligible for.
If your schedule or funding options have changed and you need more loans to cover tuition and fees, you will be notified and just need to accept the increase in the loan amount through your financial aid portal.

If you want to increase your loans to receive excess funding (stipend), you will need to get in touch with your financial aid advisor and discuss your options. We want to ensure that you understand what increasing your loans will do to your repayment in the future.
Once you get your first loan disbursement, you will have a loan servicer assigned to you. They will use the contact information provided to Herzing to send you their notifications.

If you don't receive communications from your lender, you can find out who they are by going to the National Student Data System, http://nslds.ed.gov/nslds/nslds_SA/—using the same login as your FAFSA. NSLDS will give you information on all of your federal funds in one place.
If you got your Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loan on or after July 1, 2022, and before July 1, 2023, it will have a fixed interest rate after the payment pause ends:
For undergraduate students, the interest rate for Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans is 4.99%.
For graduate or professional students, the interest rate for Direct Unsubsidized loans is 6.54%

If you received loans before July 1, 2022, your interest rates can be found here: http://studentaid.gov/understand-aid/types/loans/interest-rates#older-rates

The interest rate will also be listed in your account with your loan servicer.
If federal loans aren't your thing, or you need additional funds to help cover a gap, alternative loans are another option.

Alternative loans are loans from private sources, like your bank or a national bank. Herzing has relationships with a number of banks where the funds will come directly to the school to pay for your tuition. Please use this link for more information on Alternative loans: http://www.sjzheshengtang.com/files/StudentLoansInfoSheet_1119_LR.pdf
Repayment of most federal student loans begins six months after you leave college or drop below half-time enrollment.

PLUS loans enter repayment once your loan is fully disbursed (paid out). If you have received a PLUS loan as a graduate or professional student, the loans go into automatic deferment. This deferment means you won’t have to pay while you’re in school and are enrolled at least half-time. The deferment continues for an additional six months after you leave school or drop below half-time enrollment status.

If you’re a parent PLUS loan borrower, you can ask for a deferment. This deferment means you won’t have to pay on the loan while your child is enrolled at least half-time and for an additional six months after your child leaves school or drops below half-time status.

If you’ve started repaying your loans and then go back to school on at least a half-time basis, Herzing will send an automatic deferment to your lender for federal loans.

If you have loans from a private source, outside of federal loans, please refer to your individual loan agreement with your lender.

If you are employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization, you might be eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Keep reading to see whether you might qualify.

The PSLF Program forgives the remaining balance on your Direct Loans after you have made 120 qualifying monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan while working full-time for a qualifying employer.

Herzing has the Alumni Support Financial Services (ASFS) Center to help you. Whether you graduate or leave before finishing your program, the Alumni Support Center can assist you with choosing a federal repayment plan that is right for you. The ASFS Center can be reached at 866-508-0748 option 7.

If you wish to navigate repayment on your own, we recommend starting with your lender. The lender will have resources on how to begin the repayment process through their website.
The terms forgiveness, cancellation, or discharge mean roughly the same thing, but they are used differently. They mean that you are no longer required to repay some or all of your loan.

If you’re no longer required to make payments on your loans due to your job, this is generally called forgiveness or cancellation.

If you’re no longer required to make payments on your loans due to other circumstances, such as a total and permanent disability or the closure of the school where you received your loans, this is generally called discharge.

It’s important to remember that outside of the circumstances that may qualify you to have your loans forgiven, canceled, or discharged, you remain responsible for repaying your loan—whether or not you complete your education, find a job related to your program of study, or are happy with the education you paid for with your loan. Even if you were a minor (under the age of 18) when you signed your promissory note or received the loan, you are still responsible for repaying your loan.

Grant funding is aid that you do not need to pay back to the agency that issues it.

Grant funding that comes from the Federal Government is automatically awarded to a student based on the FAFSA information supplied. The most common type of Federal Grant funding is the Pell Grant. The Pell Grant can be received for Undergraduate programs for students who have not earned a bachelor's degree or have used 12 full-time semesters of Pell Grant in the past.

Related Questions

Once you have earned a bachelor's degree or your first professional degree or have used up all 12 terms of your eligibility, you are no longer eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant. Another reason may be that after completing the FAFSA, financial need was not determined to be high enough to get Pell Grant. Please contact your Financial Aid Advisor if you have any questions on this.
Each state has its own regulations. If Herzing has a campus in your state, we will send your information to the state to see if you are eligible. If you are, we will revise your package as soon as we are notified.
If you are a DACA or International student, Herzing will work with you to determine funding that works with your situation.
When federal loan funding comes into the school and is applied to your account, you will be sent a disbursement notification.

This notification does not mean that funds are coming to you; it only means that the funding has come into the school to pay down your tuition and fees.
Herzing offers part-time student employment opportunities, including on-campus employment and community service positions.

Students will be paid their Federal Work-Study earnings every two weeks. Please contact the Financial Aid Department at the campus for wage information, positions available, and more information about the Federal Work-Study program.

All students who apply for federal financial aid are required to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
To qualify for Federal Work Study, you must be enrolled in your program at least part-time.

Eligibility for the program is based on your financial need that is calculated on the FAFSA and the need for student employment at your Herzing campus.
Scholarships are a great way to help fund your education! There are many different options out there for students, and it can be difficult to navigate the scholarships there. Here are a couple of tips for searching for scholarships:
1. Never pay money to apply for a scholarship.
2. Search for scholarships in your field of study and anything unique to yourself as a student.
3. Ask your employer if they offer any scholarship or reimbursement program.
4. Contact local organizations you are involved with: religious organizations, local corporations, ethnic organizations, and community or government organizations.
You can find these and links to scholarship search guides by clicking here: http://www.sjzheshengtang.com/sites/default/files/2021-09/ScholarshipGuide_LR.pdf
To be in default means that you have fallen very far behind on your federal student loan payments. There are many different options to clear your default. Reaching out to your lender or our Alumni Support Center (866-508-0748 option 7) can start you on the journey to getting out of default.

The consequences of defaulting can not only impact your ability to borrow but can impact your finances as well. Consequences include the following:

You lose eligibility for additional federal student aid.

The default is reported to credit bureaus, damaging your credit rating and affecting your ability to buy a car or house or to get a credit card.

In some professions, being in default can result in loss of professional license.

If your loans are eligible, you'll temporarily regain several student aid benefits. You'll also get the opportunity to get out of default and keep those benefits for the long term. For more information on the Fresh Start Program, click here: http://studentaid.gov/announcements-events/default-fresh-start

Another way to get out of default is to repay the defaulted loan in full, but that's not a practical option for most borrowers. There are two additional ways to get out of default if Fresh Start and full repayment are not options and they are: rehabilitating your loan(s) and consolidating your loan(s).

For assistance in getting out of default in Federal and Private Education Loans, our Alumni Support Center is here to help! Calling 1-866-508-0748 Option 7 or emailing alumnisupport@sjzheshengtang.com will start the process.

Most dependent undergraduate students are eligible for up to $31,000 in federal loan funding.
Graduate students are eligible for up to $138,500 in federal loan Funding. This amount will also include any loans taken out in your undergraduate career. For example, as a student you borrowed $12,300. This means you would have $126,200 remaining to use in a graduate program.
If you have reached the maximum, you can pay down your loans to become eligible for more loan funding.
To track the amount of loan funding you have used, please utilize the National Student Data System: http://nslds.ed.gov/nslds/nslds_SA/

Parent

I am the parent and have questions

No, Parents do not have access to a student's account. If there are documents that need a parent's signature, the student will set up the signature request when they sign the document, then invite the parent to sign only the required document.
If you would like your parents to be able to call or email the school and access certain school or financial aid information, you will need to complete a Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) form that details the access the parent is allowed to receive.

For more information on FERPA use this link: http://www2.ed.gov/ferpa
For parents that wish to assist in paying for their child's education, Parent PLUS loans are there to assist as an alternative to making cash payments.

Federal Parent PLUS loans are not awarded based on the student's financial need and are only awarded after the parent applies for them. Borrowers will need to complete a credit check to qualify for a PLUS loan. For more information regarding eligibility, interest rates, origination fees, repayment, loan limits, and other requirements for borrowing PLUS loans please visit the following: http://studentaid.ed.gov/types/loans/plus

Related Questions

Parents are not required to apply for the PLUS loan, it is purely optional. Even though it is optional, completing the application can still benefit the student. If a parent applies and gets approved, they do not need to take the loan. However, if the parent applies and is denied, the student can get more Unsubsidized loan funding themselves.
Your parent can call 1-866-508-0748 option 2 or email fa@sjzheshengtang.com to talk to financial aid.

However, if we do not have a FERPA on file, we are not allowed to give them any information on the student's account. We can only give them general information and answer questions that pertain to only their portion.
If your parents are paying for your schooling, they can make payments just like a student can: mailing a check or using a credit card or bank account through the secure payment portal at http://secure.sjzheshengtang.com.

They will need to know the following information:
1. Student Name (that matches our records)
2. Student ID#
3. Amount to pay

They can mail a check to:
Herzing University
C/O Student Accounts
275 W. Wisconsin Avenue Suite #210
Milwaukee, WI 53203

Please keep in mind that mailing a check takes longer to process than using the payment portal.
If your parents live out of the country, you will still need to include them on the FAFSA.
On the FAFSA you will select " Foreign Country" from the dropdown menu that asks about the parents' state of legal residence.
In the tax information section, you’ll have the opportunity to indicate that they have filed their taxes. Then, when the FAFSA form asks whether your parents filed a Puerto Rican or foreign tax return, select “Yes." You will need to convert the amounts on the foreign tax return into U.S. dollars as directed by the FAFSA help.

Related Questions

Your parents’ citizenship status doesn’t affect your eligibility for federal student aid. In fact, the FAFSA form doesn’t even ask about parent citizenship status. The information provided on the FAFSA does not go to any other agency, it is used ONLY for determining your eligibility for federal aid.

If your parent doesn’t have a Social Security number (SSN), you’ll need to enter all zeros without dashes (000000000) in the parent SSN section on your FAFSA form.

Also, a parent who doesn’t have an SSN can’t create an account username and password (FSA ID) or complete their part of the FAFSA form online. They can sign the FAFSA form only if you print a signature page. To do this, select “Print Signature Page” on the “My FAFSA” or “Signature Status” page, sign and have your parent sign, then mail it to the address listed on the page. Your FAFSA form will be processed once the signature page is received.

Payments

I have questions payments

Students can make payments via credit card or direct deposit through the payment portal or by mailing a check

Herzing recommends that students use the payment portal http://secure.sjzheshengtang.com and sign up for auto-withdrawal since this is the safest and most reliable way to make payments. It is important to note the payment portal is not linked to your student account, so you will need to know the amount to pay before heading to this site.

If you wish to mail a check, please send it to:

If you cannot afford a payment, please do not ignore the past due payment or lockout warning emails sent to your Herzing account; you should call or email your financial aid advisor right away. They can help modify your payment arrangement or come up with different options for you.
Failure to make a payment can result in you being unable to attend classes due to a lock on your account.
If you are receiving Payment Reminder, Past Due Payment Reminder, or Lockout Warning emails, and you think these emails are being sent in error, please contact your financial aid advisor right away.
If you are locked out, chances are that some payments are past due. You will want to contact your financial aid advisor immediately to discuss options for getting unlocked.
To find the amount you owe, you can consult the signed payment plan that is located in the document section of the Financial aid portal. You can also find the amount through the student accounts section, under student records on the main Herzing Resource page.
If you wish to pay your tuition directly using cash, Herzing offers payment plans to fit your budget. You can work directly with your Financial Aid Advisor to schedule your payments bi-weekly, monthly or semesterly.

On-time payments throughout the life of your payment plan may also result in a one-time Financial Responsibility scholarship paid in your last semester of up to $1,000.00. More information on this scholarship can be found here: http://www.sjzheshengtang.com/tuition-financial-aid/types-financial-aid/scholarships-grants

Sometimes a payment plan can be added to an account due to schedule changes, loan availability, grant availability, etc. If we had to add a payment plan to your account, it will be located in the document section of your financial aid portal.

If you do not see a payment plan in the document section, you do not have a payment plan.

A balance owed to Herzing will be presented to you as a payment plan.

If you are taking out loans, you will have a balance owed to your lender, and this balance will increase each semester that you take out a loan.

Refund/Stipend

I have questions about a refund or stipend

A Stipend is when a student gets funding released back to them. Stipends can happen for a couple of reasons.

The first is when a student has requested additional funding to help pay for school-related expenses and the stipend is issued to the student within 14 days from when there is a credit on the account.

The second way is if the student did not request additional funding and they did not fill out the Title IV Authorization form. If this is the case, please contact your Financial Aid Advisor to discuss solutions.

Related Questions

Let your financial aid advisor know if you wish to have your stipend deposited directly into your personal bank account. They will set up the system to notify BankMobile. Please verify your address and phone number with your financial aid advisor so the information can get sent to the proper location.

Once BankMobile is notified, they will send you an email and a letter with instructions on how to set up the direct deposit. If Herzing sends the funds to BankMobile before you set up your account, you will be notified via email and text that you need to set up your account.
If you have requested a paper check for your stipend and have not received it, please email the Student Accounts department at studentaccounts@sjzheshengtang.com.

They will check the bank to make sure the check has not been cashed and then request you to complete a Check Re-Issue form through your portal.

Certain Herzing scholarships offered to students require that students limit their borrowing to cover direct tuition and fee expenses only. This means excess funding for expenses outside of those direct charges are limited when opting to receive these scholarships. For a list of Herzing scholarships that require this direct packaging, visit http://www.sjzheshengtang.com/tuition-financial-aid/types-financial-aid/scholarships-grants.

Excess funds created by grant funding, such as the Federal Pell Grant will always be sent to you, and scholarship eligibility will not be lost. If you wish to receive a stipend from loans, you will need to discuss with your financial aid advisor how to remove the scholarship from your account. Please be advised once the scholarship is removed from your account, you can never get it back.

If a student is using military benefits and has excess generated due to Pell Grant or additional loan funding, that stipend will be released once a credit appears on the account. Normally this is created once VA funding has been received.

With VRRAP funds, Herzing is paid 50% at the beginning of the program, 25% at graduation and 25% once employment is secured. The stipend will be released within 14 days of the federal funding being paid to the school. This is the only case where a stipend is released to the student without there being a credit on the account due to the nature of how VRRAP funding pays to the school.
Stipends are meant for students to pay for expenses related to going to school.

These expenses include but are not limited to, purchasing a new computer, school supplies, textbooks, additional scrubs for an externship, software programs, internet, off-campus housing, or transportation to and from school or externship.

Expenses not included would be vacation expenses, holiday gifts, etc.
Stipends are released 14 days after a credit appears on the account, if eligible. Please refer back to your offer notification email for the semester amount you are eligible to receive.
A refund is funding that has been returned to the federal government, school, or alternative source.

This can happen if the student has withdrawn from a course or the university and it has caused a change in the cost of tuition or fees. The loans will be returned to the lender to reduce the student's overall loan balance.

If this happens to a loan, that portion of the loan acts like it never existed. There are no fees attached and any interest accrued on that portion of the loan goes away.

Scheduling/Enrollment

I have questions about my financial aid and my schedule/enrollment

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards ensure that you are successfully completing your coursework and can continue to receive financial aid. All students receiving financial aid are required to meet SAP standards.

Federal regulations require the University to establish, publish, and apply standards to monitor your progress toward completing your degree program. If you fail to meet the SAP standards, you will be placed on financial aid warning or suspension.

For more information on Herzing's Satisfactory Academic Progress standards, click here: http://catalog.sjzheshengtang.com/content.php?catoid=60&navoid=3544#satisfactory-academic-progress

Related Questions

Yes, your SAP status does affect your FA. If you are on Academic Warning you are ineligible to receive Financial Aid without an appeal.

When you are placed in the Academic Warning status, your financial aid will be canceled for future semesters and will not be reinstated until you have successfully appealed to remain in the program.

Please keep an eye on your Herzing Email for the steps needed to appeal your SAP status.
Adding or removing classes from your schedule can change your tuition cost.

If you add a course to your schedule, your tuition for that semester will go up based on the individual cost per credit.

If you drop a course before you start attending it, the tuition cost will adjust down based on the individual cost per credit. If you drop a course after you start attending, the full cost of the course will remain on your account.

Related Questions

When you fail a class, your student services advisor will reschedule that course for you. Once this schedule change is completed, your financial aid advisor will review the changes and make any necessary adjustments to your financial aid package. The student is responsible for paying for the failed class as well as the retake.

Rescheduling the course may result in a tuition change and lengthening your time before graduation.
Yes, anytime you have to retake a course you will be responsible for paying for the retake as well as the original course. Your financial aid package will be adjusted once your schedule has been updated.
To receive federal student loans when enrolled in an undergraduate degree you must have 6 or more credits scheduled in a semester.
When enrolled in a graduate/professional degree you must have 3 or more credits scheduled in a semester.
To request a review for transfer credits, students should submit their unofficial transcripts to their admissions team at the time of enrollment.

Identified transfer credits can only officially be conferred and be posted to a student's account once we receive the official transcripts.
If you need to leave school (withdraw) because life happens, we understand that. If this happens to you, we will perform what is called a Federal Return to Title IV Calculation. This calculation takes the number of days you have sat in courses and adjusts your tuition and aid according to the Federal and State rules we are required to follow.

Sometimes it may leave a balance on a student's account. If this happens, we will work with you on a financial plan.

If you need to take a break from the University, tuition and fee adjustments happen in a similar way to withdrawing from the school. One big difference is that you will come back on a date that is pre-determined with your Student Services Advisor.

If the break happens at the end of the semester, there is no proration of tuition and fees. However, if you need to take the break after the semester starts, we will take the number of days you have attended the classes and apply the tuition and fees based on the number of days, not the whole semester.

Related Questions

When you withdraw from the school or a class, there is a possibility of there being a balance owed to the school. If this happens you will be sent a notification and a payment plan to cover the balance.

If you wish to return to Herzing after withdrawing, your financial aid advisor will work out the options for covering the balance with you.

Tuition Invoice

How do I get a tuition statement or invoice?

Tuition statements and invoices assist students when applying for Tuition Assistance or Tuition Reimbursement through an employer, VA, or another party.

They will include the course Name, Number, Date, cost, and payment method. You can make a request for grades to be recorded as well.

Call or email your financial aid advisor or campus location to request a tuition statement or invoice. Depending on the current demand for tuition statements and invoices, it can take up to 3-5 business days.
Tuition reimbursement is money paid to a student from an employer, VA, or other sources that cover the cost of tuition.

Many employers require students to submit proof that their tuition has been paid before they reimburse the student.

Tuition/Charges

I have questions about tuition and charges

Tuition and Fee billing begins 10 days after the semester starts. If the 10th day falls on a weekend, the charges will get billed during the following week.

Related Questions

Students may voluntarily withdraw from a course at any time by notifying the Academic Dean, Student Service Advisor or Registrar. If the withdrawal from the course happens before posting attendance, there will be no charge. If attendance is posted, withdrawal from a course does not get a tuition reduction and will be charged in full.

A disbursement is when your selected funding is paid to the school and applied to your student account.

Once you accept your financial aid funding package and begin classes, your financial aid money will be applied to your account at Herzing University to cover the cost of tuition and fees. This generally happens about 10 days after classes have started.

This link will provide you with the estimated dates for the federal funds to be disbursed: http://www.sjzheshengtang.com/disbursement-schedules.

Funding outside of Federal sources from the FAFSA has different dates and ways of disbursing. Please refer back to your financial aid advisor for more information.

Related Questions

VA Benefits

I have questions about VA Benefits

The VA reexamines school status every 8 weeks of a semester, and they consider 5 or more credits within an 8-week period to be full-time. Dependent on class schedule, a student may be considered full-time for part of a semester and less than full-time for the other if credits vary in each half of a semester.

Related Questions

For chapter benefits that come to the school, the VA will pay 7-10 days after tuition and fees is reported to the VA. Housing allowance is sent to eligible students at the beginning of every month for the prior months enrollment.

For chapter benefits that go to the student directly, the VA pays benefits at the beginning of every month for the prior month's enrollment.

For Federal Tuition Assistance that comes to the school, the individual branch of service will pay tuition and fees after Herzing invoices, which is after the start of each term.
The Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) provides money to cover service members' housing and related costs for those whose quarters are not provided by the government. BAH rate is based on paygrade, dependency status and the location of duty station. Rates change each year and can be viewed at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/resources/benefits_resources/rate_tables.asp. If you wish to confirm your housing rates with the VA, please reach out to the VA Hotline at 888-GIBILL-1
The VA pays the school in lump sums. It can take up to 14 business days for our Student Accounts department to review and allocate appropriate funds to each student’s account. You can monitor your student account within your student portal at http://login.sjzheshengtang.com
To receive military benefits, we need the following:
1- Certificate of Eligibility (COE)
