Cost and Financial Aid

The Package

Financial data provided on the FAFSA will be forwarded electronically to the University, and will be the basis for the creation of the student’s financial aid package. The initial financial aid package will be communicated to the student via email.

Generally, the initial offer of financial assistance delineated in the award letter is non-negotiable. The financial aid package may be altered as a result of one or more of the following conditions:

  • Changes in the student’s enrollment status (i.e., credit hours);
  • Lack of satisfactory academic progress;
  • Receipt of financial aid from an outside source;
  • Changes in the student’s housing status (i.e., on- versus off-campus housing); and/or
  • Discrepancies noted as a result of the verification process.
  • Corrections made to the FAFSA by the student/parent


The student’s financial aid package may be comprised of a combination of grant, scholarship, loan, and Federal Work-Study funding.

Grants and scholarships are forms of assistance that do not have to be repaid, while loans must be repaid with interest. (Note: Interest rates and repayment terms vary based on the type of loan secured.)
