Understanding My Award

The total award amount is based on your full cost of attendance, which includes not only tuition and fees but also an allowance for books, supplies, living expenses, and transportation. You may find that your award notification includes funds that exceed your tuition and fees. This is to help with those additional expenses included in your cost of attendance.

Other Resources

If you receive any scholarships, tuition credit, or tuition reimbursement not reflected in your award letter, please notify the Office of Financial Aid Services of these “other resources” so that we can review the information and determine if an adjustment to your award is necessary.

Make sure you read about all the terms and conditions of your financial aid award.
