Are you on financial aid suspension?

  • File a financial aid suspension appeal with the Office of Scholarship & Financial Aid. Submitting an appeal does not mean automatic approval. Please allow 2-3 weeks for review.

Have you applied for a private educational loan if needed?

  • A private educational loan, while listed on your Award Letter, requires you to complete a separate application.

Will your financial aid be delayed for some reason?

If charging on financial aid at the Bookstore has ended and you still have not received your aid, inquire at financial aid to have them determine if you might be able to process a late charge based on a book quote from the Bookstore.
