Understanding your Award

No two students are alike, but if you’re admitted and you qualify for financial aid, you will be awarded a package: some combination of scholarships (which do not have to be paid back), loans (which do), and work on campus (which, believe it or not, can be fun, and even educational). Determining financial need, cost of attendance, Student Aid Index (SAI), award letters and conditions—what’s it all mean?
