Investing In Your Future

Choosing a university is an important decision and a significant investment into your future. It is important to consider an institution that offers the educational experience you require to accomplish your goals combined with clear information regarding affordability, methods of repayment and future debt. The US Census Bureau has shown that a college education will pay for itself with future earnings. However, today's economic conditions compel students and their families to explore options that don't leave you saddled with incredible debt requiring a lifetime of payments. 

Each year the university awards approximately 1.9 million dollars in tuition grants and scholarships to its student body and over 96% of our students receive some form of financial aid or assistance.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Disclosure

Piedmont International University (PIU) was a recipient of funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund as part of the CARES Act passed by Congress in 2020.  The US Department of Education (the Department) requires certain disclosures related to our participation in this program as listed below:

  1. PIU signed and returned to the Department the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that the institution has used, or intends to use, no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
  2. PIU received $203,931 from the Department for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to these students.
  3. As of May 19, 2020, a total of $189,450 has already been distributed to qualifying students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.
  4. The estimated total number of PIU students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 is 516.  Many of these do not qualify for the Emergency Financial Aid Grant based on their enrollment in an online program.
  5. As of May 19, 2020, the total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 239.
  6. Recipients of this grant were determined by identifying undergraduate students who were eligible for Title IV aid (determined by a completed FAFSA) and also enrolled on the main campus during the Spring 2020 semester.  Students in a graduate, doctoral, or online campus program were excluded based on our interpretation of the Department's guidelines regarding online students.  Base award amounts were determined using the following: $900 for residential students, $500 for full-time commuters, $250 for part-time commuters.  Additional “hardship” amounts were added in some situations based on independent statuses, family hardships, job losses, illnesses, and similar factors.  A small portion was reserved for additional hardship grants as information is made available.
