Financial Aid

Hi so I received financial aid and I’m wondering how we will receive it. Will it go to our bank accounts and we will pay from there or how does it work? Thank you!

    Most FA (federal, loans, university, usually state aid) all are paid through the school. The school gathers up all the fund, pays your bill, and refunds anything to you. If you have a balance to pay, you need to make sure you pay it by the due date.

    Outside scholarships may be paid directly to you, but if so you need to report them to the school.
