Outside Grants and Scholarships
Privately funded grants and scholarships must be included in your financial aid package as a resource. Students should notify the Office of Student Financial Services of any outside scholarships.
Generally, outside scholarships can be used to reduce the amount students and their families are expected to pay. When federal regulations require an adjustment to the aid package, aid will be adjusted in this order: work study, Perkins loan, subsidized loan, and unsubsidized loan, followed by institutional, federal, and state gift aid if required.
Outside scholarships will be credited to your student account as a payment when the funds are received.
