Affect Scholarships Awards Have on Aid


This page is designed to help you understand some of the ways which your aid can become affected by a Scholarship Award. 

The Financial Aid & Scholarships Office offers awards based on full-time enrollment.  Awards are offered up to the students Cost of Attendance.  Typically the student accepts all aid offered, maximizing all aid during the academic year.  Aid awarded, including scholarships cannot exceed the students Cost of Attendance.

Scholarship awards must be included as part of the students resources along with other federal/state aid programs.  Eligibility of scholarship award(s) after the sudent has been awarded federa/state aid, may cause an adjustment to aid already accepted and/or disbursed.  It is very important to notify the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office once you have been notified of a scholarship.
