Financial Aid

Scholarships, Grants, Loans Approved anticipated financial aid credit (Federal, State, University) appears on the bill and reduces the amount due now. Any amount not covered by approved financial aid must be paid by the due date of the bill. If a zero or credit (CR) balance shows, return your statement by the due date to complete your registration and avoid a late fee. Financial aid that does not appear on the bill was not approved at the time it was printed. Verify the status of your aid with the Financial Aid Office. If it is approved, subtract that amount from the balance due on your bill and indicate what type of aid you are taking credit for. If it is not approved, the Bursar's Office cannot extend credit for it.
