  • Grants are pro-rated based on enrollment. If you are enrolled less than full time, your award will be reduced.
  • Entrance loan counseling and a Master Promissory Note are required for students expecting a loan disbursement. At least half-time enrollment is required.
  • If aid has not been applied to your account, review your Financial Aid and Scholarship Self Service Portal to see if you have any outstanding requirements.
  • Visit Office of Registrar for important dates regarding adding /dropping classes. This may have an impact on your aid through January 19, 2023 (Last day to add classes and withdraw without tuition penalty).
  • Students who add classes after financial aid has disbursed may create a balance. Pay your balance before late fee charges are added. Review your options with Student Accounts.
