Financial Aid Award Revisions
If the Financial Services Office receives additional information pertaining to a student's financial aid application, adjustments to a financial award are often necessary. If a student's award is adjusted, he or she will receive a Revised Award Letter. Some typical reasons for award adjustments are:
If a student modifies his/her originally planned enrollment plan by dropping or adding one or more classes, his/her cost of attendance changes, which often alters financial aid eligibility. In these cases, the Financial Services Office is required to reduce a student's financial aid award. Please note: all students must be enrolled at least half time to receive financial aid, which is a minimum of six semester credit hours for undergraduate and three credit hours for graduate students.
If a student decides to commute instead of living on campus, their cost of attendance changes and may reduce financial aid eligibility and the student's award. Please note that first and second year students are required to live on campus unless they are commuting from home, within 30 miles of the College. If needed, students in their third year or beyond can receive financial aid to cover campus housing. Proof of living expenses (lease agreement and utility bills) are required to receive aid.
New information is available.
Updated information provided by the student may result in an EFC change.
