Things to Keep in Mind

Award Terms and Conditions

Financial aid terms & conditions must be accepted in OASIS before you review your financial aid offers. Some scholarships may have separate terms & conditions to view; however, you can accept all terms & conditions at the same time by clicking on the “Accept” button under the terms & conditions tab in OASIS.

Financial Aid and Your Bill

Your bill is due the fifth day of classes each term. A tuition deferment prevents cancellation of registration for non-payment of fees, and temporarily prevents assessment of the late payment fee. Financial aid is paid on the sixth day of classes after enrollment is confirmed.

Financial Aid and Your Enrollment

Enrollment statuses are the same for every semester: fall, spring, and summer. Enrollment requires that you are an active degree seeking student. Most financial aid awards require at least half-time attendance and many programs require full-time attendance.

Summer Aid Eligibility

The amount of aid you can receive for summer will depend on the length of the summer session(s) in which you enroll. Your aid will be initially based on enrollment in summer C session (10 weeks), but your aid amount may be reduced if you end up enrolling in summer A only or summer B only. For example, if you are in summer A only, your cost of attendance will reflect 6 weeks of expenses.

    What If I Drop Some Classes or Withdraw?

    The decision about whether or not to drop a class or withdraw is an academic issue; however, it is your responsibility to understand the financial implications of this decision. Dropping classes may jeopardize future student aid eligibility, including scholarships & student loans. Click the links for more information.
