What does the “Sequester” mean for Owens?

Based on a mandate in the Budget Control Act of 2011, on Friday, March 1, 2013, the lack of agreement regarding the federal budget led to President Obama issuing a sequestrian order.  This basically means across the board cuts to the federal government.  While some things, like the Federal Pell Grant and veterans administration programs like the GI and Post 9/11 GI Bill, were spared, other federal programs have been cut, having an impact on our students.   Those include:

  • Two need-based programs, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and Federal Work-Study (FWS), will see reductions in the 2013-2014 aid year.   Although Owens has not been officially notified how much funding we will lose, we are anticipating approximately a 10% cut between both programs.
  • Direct Stafford Loan origination fees are increasing for new loans disbursed after 3/1/13 for all students.  However, those exact percentage changes are not finalized yet and we have been guided to proceed with the old amounts at this time.
  • Department of Defense Tuition Assistance Program – at this time most of the armed forces have suspended new students from enrolling and will not accept future semester requests for current enrollees.

What are your thoughts on how this may impact our students?

One other thing I would really like to say is newer laptop or computer operating systems usually allow additional memory to be played with, but they furthermore demand more ram simply to perform. If an individual’s computer can’t handle much more memory and also the newest software package requires that memory increase, it could be the time to buy a new Laptop. Thanks

    One thing is the fact one of the most widespread incentives for applying your credit cards is a cash-back as well as rebate offer. Generally, you get 1-5 back on various purchases. Depending on the card, you may get 1 back on most expenditures, and 5 back on expenditures made on convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores and also ‘member merchants’.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!
