When you receive an offer letter from Student Financial Services it can include one or many of the types of financial aid listed below. We encourage all students to review financial aid offers carefully to understand all terms and requirements. Whatever amount is not covered by financial aid is the balance due. There are a variety of payment options for students to pay their balance.

Should you have any questions about financial aid or payment options, please connect with us.

Scholarships and Assistantships

Scholarships are monies that are not paid back, but usually have a requirement (i.e. a  GPA that must be met and/or maintained). An assistantship allows a student to work within their department in research or other work to earn this financial aid benefit.
