GeneralPicThe Financial Aid Office administers three types of scholarships: Institutional, Departmental and Community Scholarships.

Typically, scholarships are disbursed at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters unless otherwise specified by the scholarship donor. However, no disbursements will be made until the Financial Aid Office has received funds from the scholarship donor. Scholarships are used as a resource in a student's financial aid package, and may reduce need-based financial aid awards.
