What is NCAA Division III?

NCAA Division III is the largest of the NCAA's three divisions, with more than 400 institutions. There are NO athletic scholarships.

What does NCAA Division III Offer?

Division III athletics provides a well-rounded collegiate experience that involves a balance of academics, competitive athletics, and the opportunity to pursue the multitude of other co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities offered on Division III campuses.

Division III features student-athletes who are subject to the same admission standards, academic standards, housing, and support services as the general student body. The integration of athletics with the larger institution enables student-athletes to experience all aspects of campus life.

Division III playing seasons and eligibility standards minimize conflicts between athletics and academics, allowing student-athletes to focus on their academic programs and the achievement of a degree.

Division III athletics feature athletes who receive no financial aid related to their athletics skills and athletics programs that are staffed and funded like any other department in the university.

Division III athletics encourages the development of sportsmanship and positive social attitudes. Coaches and players treat each other with respect, and administrators work to foster a positive competitive environment.

Division III affords student-athletes the opportunity to discover valuable lessons in teamwork, discipline, perseverance, and leadership, which in turn make student-athletes better students and responsible citizens.

Division III encourages student-athletes to take advantage of the many opportunities available to them, both within and beyond athletics, so that they may develop their full potential as students, athletes, and citizens.

Division III offers an intense and competitive athletics environment for student-athletes who play for the love of the game, without the obligation of an athletics scholarship.

Division III places primary emphasis on regional in-season and conference competition, while also offering 36 national championships annually.

Overview of Need-Based Financial Aid

Financial aid administered by Thiel College's Financial Aid Office is electronically disbursed to the student's account no earlier than 10 days prior to the start of each term and continues on an as-needed basis, based on fulfillment of student eligibility requirements. Disbursement dates are contingent upon the student completing all necessary paperwork and meeting the enrollment requirements for the grant/scholarship/loan. Federal loan monies require completing the master promissory note (MPN) and entrance counseling online prior to disbursement.

Types of Aid

Scholarships
Scholarships are educational funds that do not require repayment; they are given for reasons such as academic success, community service or involvement, exemplary leadership and more.Students are considered for academic merit awards based on their cumulative GPA and official SAT (Critical Reading and Math composite) / ACT (composite) scores.

Please note: Wesley College offers Division III athletics, and therefore we do not award athletic scholarships.


Grants
Grants are funds through federal, state and/or college resources that do not have to be repaid. Awards are primarily based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA (FAFSA completion is required to be considered for these grants).

Loans
Loans are available for educational purposes but must be repaid. Student loans typically can be deferred while enrolled on at least a half-time basis. Loans also are available for parents to help pay expected out-of-pocket costs.

Student Employment
Students have an opportunity to work, primarily on-campus, to earn money toward covering college expenses. These funds are not directly deducted from your student billing but can be used toward tuition or personal expenses.

How Financial Need is Determined
By completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) a student will receive an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC is then subtracted from the Cost of Attendance to arrive at the student's financial need. Cost of Attendance includes tuition, fees, room and board (if living on campus) or a commuter or off-campus living allowance, as well as estimates for books, personal and transportation expenses.

How Financial Aid Packages are Assembled
Once a student's financial aid eligibility has been established, a financial aid "package" is awarded which typically consists of both gift aid (scholarships, grants) and self-help aid (student loans, student employment). Thiel considers past and current academic performance when constructing financial aid packages. packages. We try to meet the financial need of all aid applicants using all available resources; students with high academic ratings, however, will be awarded packages with a higher-than-average percentage of gift aid. Differentials among academic award categories are moderate, so no student should expect an unreasonable level of gift or self-help aid.
