Accepting and Receiving Aid
Incoming first year and transfer students will receive a paper letter in the mail. All other students will receive an email notification of their aid offer. Carefully review the terms and conditions of your awards and the required reading.
Your financial aid offer is available to you in the Financial Aid & Scholarship Self Service Portal.
- Scholarships and Grants are accepted on your behalf since they do not require repayment.
- Incoming students will need to review and accept the terms and conditions of their scholarships prior to receiving their disbursement.
- If you have been offered federal student loans, you can accept, reduce, decline, or leave at the offered status on a term-by-term basis. Unless you accept at least part of your loan, no funds will be applied to your student account. In addition, you must be enrolled at least half time (6 credits for undergraduates and 4 credits for graduates) at the time of loan disbursement.
- You will need to complete Entrance Loan Counseling and a Master Promissory Note at studentaid.gov. Please set aside at least 30 minutes to complete these tasks.
- Federal work study offers are funds that are earned. You must accept this award. Visit Career Services for more tips on finding employment.
