Some students may receive outside scholarships and/or other scholarship assistance from outside sources. You should notify us immediately of any outside aid which you are receiving or expect to receive which doesn't appear on your award letter. If additional assistance is received at any time during the school year, an adjustment to your original award may be made to prevent an overaward of federal aid.
Overaward: In the event the student's total aid exceeds his financial need or the cost of attendance, any federal loan aid shall be reduced, then institutional and other aid in accordance with the institutional practice, then State Scholarships and Grants (including TOPS if applicable), shall be reduced by the amount of any remaining over award.
We encourage you to use any of the various scholarship search tools provided below to assist you in your search for scholarships. The Division of Student Financial Aid does not endorse or receive any incentives from any of the scholarship search tools listed.
