Acceptance Steps

Follow the instructions and guided messages when you view your award notification to indicate the amount of each aid type you wish to accept. Grants and scholarships will not require acceptance; access to work-study and student loan funds requires that certain steps be completed. You must also notify the Student Financial Services of any scholarship or other educational funds you will receive from external sources if they are not listed. If you have been offered a scholarship or other source of funding by the University or some other organization, it will be counted as a resource when your eligibility for aid is calculated. 

If you have any questions during this process, please feel free to contact us.
