Scholarships and grants will be automatically applied to the student’s account. Any loans, if desired, must be accepted by the student.

Once accepted, any available financial aid will be applied to the student’s account. All financial aid requirements must be met before any funds are applied to the student’s account or disbursed to the student.

Funds in excess of tuition and fees will be released to the student no earlier than ten days before the start of the fall or winter semesters, and no earlier than the first day of the spring or summer semesters.
