Approved Financial Aid
Financial aid awards are listed on an official award notification from the Financial Aid Office. Credits are reflected for grants, scholarships, and loans each semester, as appropriate.

These loans are processed electronically, with transfer of funds normally occurring during the first part of each semester.
