Financial Aid Recipients

Students scheduled to receive financial aid must pay the "balance due" listed at bottom of the bill prior to the beginning of classes. The balance due represents the amount charged minus the estimated amount of financial aid the student is expected to receive. It is important to note that although the estimated financial aid amount will be credited to the account, interest charges of 1.5 percent per month will be charged to the unpaid balance until the account is paid in full. Timely application for financial aid is important, and students are encouraged to complete the necessary paperwork as early as possible.

Work study money is not automatically applied to a student’s account. This money, which is earned only by working a given number of hours per week, is paid directly to the student.
