STUDENT AID


STUDENT EMPLOYMENT
Every effort is made to aid qualified students in obtaining part-time em-
ployment. Opportunities are limited; consequently the number of part-time jobs
available does not approach the number of applicants seeking these jobs. Every
attempt is made to place students in work that utilizes their training and ex-
perience.
Each student who is employed by the University must have an honor point
average of "C" for the semester or term immediately preceding his employment.
The average rate of pay per hour is between 50 and 75 cents; the average earn-
ings per month are about $40.
Student employment is directed by the Committee on Student Aid, Scholar-
ships and Awards, with the Assistant Dean of Men administering the program.
All applications for work should be made prior to the opening of the semester
in which employment is desired. Applications for work, however, may be filed at
any time.
Inquiries should be addressed to: Assistant Dean of Men, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

SCHOLARSHIPS
The University of Florida does not have large sums of money available for
cash scholarships. Many of the scholarships available to students are awarded
directly by the donors, and administered through the Business Office of the Uni-
versity and the Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships and Awards; however,
there are a number of scholarships awarded and administered by the Committee
on Student Aid, Scholarships and Awards. The Committee collects all informa-
tion relative to the basis of award, the value, and other pertinent facts pertaining
to scholarships. The Committee also collects information on the applicants and
supplies this information to donors. In some instances the Committee has been
given the authority to make awards without consulting donors.
While scholarship as evidenced by academic attainment is an important feature
in making awards, it is by no means the only consideration. The student's po-
tential capacity to profit by college training and to make reasonable returns to
society are important considerations in making all awards.
In addition to the opportunities for scholarship awards at the University,
prospective students are urged to consult the resources in their home communities.
Many civic clubs and community organizations are interested in providing means
whereby students may attend college when they are convinced the investment
will be worth while.
Unless otherwise specified, applications for scholarships listed below should
be made to the Dean of Men who is Chairman of the Committee on Student Aid,
Scholarships and Awards at the University of Florida, Gainesville.

LOANS
All student loan funds are administered by the Committee on Student Aid,
Scholarships and Awards unless otherwise provided for by the terms and condi-
tions laid down by the donors of loan fund.
The several loan funds available at the University of Florida may be divided
into two classes: (1) The long-term loan fund which allows the student to com-
plete his college education and repay the loan after graduation in installments over
a period of years; and (2) the short-term emergency loan fund which aims to
meet the needs of unforeseen emergencies that arise in the financing of college
expenses. As a rule, the short-term loans are for small amounts and are repayable
within the semester.
APPLICATIONS
Unless otherwise specified, application for loan funds should be made to
the Dean of Men, who is Chairman of the Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships
and Awards, University of Florida, Gainesville. A personal appearance of the
applicant is required before final consideration can be given.

ELIGIBILITY FOR LOANS
No student may borrow from the University of Florida loan funds who does
not have a "C" average for the entire time he has been at the University. Where
there are extenuating circumstances, exception to this rule may be made. Before
a loan will be granted the Committee must be thoroughly convinced of the
applicant's real need for assistance and it will be considered grounds for refusal
of the application if it is found that a loan is desired as a mere matter of con-
venience to avoid earnest effort on the part of the applicant to obtain the neces-
sary money from other sources.
AMOUNT OF LOANS
Long-term loans shall be limited to $500.00 to any one applicant. Not more
than $250.00 may be secured during any one semester. Short-term loans are for
small amounts within a maximum of $50.00.
RESPONSIBILITY
Each student making a loan shall sign a note for the full amount of the
loan. The applicant for long-term loans shall be required to furnish an acceptable
endorser.







LONG-TERM LOANS
Loans shall be payable in a lump sum or in installments of not less than
10% per month, which payments shall include interest and principal. The loan,
or the first payment, shall be due not later than three months after graduation
or the date of leaving college if the borrower does not graduate. Exceptions to
this may be made in special cases.
SHORT-TERM LOANS
Short-term loans (Tolbert Loans) are available in cases of emergency. These
loans may not exceed $50.00 to any one applicant and must be repaid within 90
days or by the end of the semester in which the loan is made.

INTEREST
Short-term notes have a standard application fee of 2%. This is in lieu of
interest. Interest rates on loan funds vary according to terms of the donor, but
5 % is the usual rate. All interest and fees become part of the respective loan funds.

LOAN RENEWALS
Loan renewals requested by students in residence shall be made to the Chair-
man of the Committee on Student Aid, Scholarships and Awards. Loan renewals
requested by students no longer in residence shall be made to the custodian of
accounts in the Business Office. Renewal rates are the same as application rates
for the respective funds.

PENALTIES FOR DELINQUENCIES
If a loan is due before the end of the semester and is not paid or renewed,
the student may not receive credit for the semester's work, will not be issued a
transcript, and may not reregister until payment or renewal is made. This delin-
quency shall be posted on the student's personal record. If a loan is due before
the beginning of a semester and is not paid or renewed, the student will not be
allowed to register, or will be dropped if he has already registered. Failure to
make proper settlement or arrange for renewal of a note by the date due will
result in a delinquency fee of 2% of the unpaid principal.
