Financial Aid

How can I accept/decline my Financial Aid awards?

If you are at the appropriate stage of the Financial Aid process to accept your awards, you can navigate to your Student Center and scroll down to the Finances section. You should find links to View Financial Aid and Accept/Decline Awards. Click the Accept/Decline Awards link and select the appropriate Aid Year. Adjust the Accept/Decline checkboxes to indicate your intentions. If appropriate for the specific award, you will also be given access to update the dollar values in the “Accepted” column. If your aid includes loans you will be prompted to select a lender. Click the Submit button once you have updated the Accept/Decline page as necessary.

I have gone to the appropriate Financial Aid page and I do not see any awards, what do I do?

If you do not see the expected awards, it’s possible that they may not have actually been awarded yet. Please contact the Financial Aid office for further information regarding your record and aid disbursement.

I am applying for Financial Aid or awaiting my Financial Aid disbursement. How will my fee payment be affected? Will I lose any of my enrolled classes?

Financial Aid has a process where aid applicants are flagged and temporarily exempted from the dis-enrollment process that goes along with fee deadlines. However, there are deadlines by which you must be awarded aid and have your aid disbursed. After those deadlines, if you have not met the requirements you will again be subject to regular fee payment deadlines and the dis-enrollment process. Please contact the Financial Aid Office or Student Financial Services for further details on Financial Aid, fee payment and the dis-enrollment process.
