How a Student Receives Assistance

A student who applies in time and is eligible can use financial aid (excluding Federal Work-Study) to pay tuition and fees and to make book purchases (if there are excess funds available).  Excess funds after direct costs have been paid will be refunded to the student. All financial aid awards are considered estimated or anticipated until the aid is disbursed to student accounts.

Students who receive a Federal Work-Study (FWS) award and obtain employment through this program are paid once a month.
