A Look at Your Award Letter

As you read your award notification, here is some information to help you. If you find any incorrect information or have any questions, please let us know!

Award Guidelines and Estimated Costs

Enrollment
There is an assumption of full-time enrollment for aid purposes and students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive aid. If you enroll less than full-time but at least half-time, the aid paid to you (except Direct Loans) will be reduced based on your level of enrollment. We will monitor your enrollment level throughout your award period and changes may result in reduction or cancellation of previously offered aid, even after funds have been disbursed to you.
