Accepting Your Award Offer

Any "free" money, such as grants and scholarships are automatically accepted for you and applied to your billing statement. If you would like to accept a federal student loan offered to you, you will need to do so on your Self-Service Banner. 

Important Information

When accepting your awards, please keep in mind the amount is for the academic year. You will get half of your loans in the fall, and the other half in the spring. If you decide to select a lesser amount than offered, this will be split between the two semesters so please plan accordingly. If you need help correcting or updating your loan amounts, please contact our office. 

If you are graduating in December, your loans will be prorated and we need to manually adjust your award, please contact us to assist you. 

Please Note: If you are taking summer courses and would like to use financial aid, please visit the summer aid page for instructions
