Helpful Tips:

  • Most aid is offered for the full academic year, but split between fall and spring semesters. Accept the amount you need for both semesters.
  • For subsidized and unsubsidized student loans, you may delay your decision by not checking any box.  If you decide later than you want some or all of the loans, return to this screen to accept.
  • If you want more or less in loans for spring semester, request that adjustment during fall semester and prior to the disbursement of spring aid.
  • If you will be attending for only one term, contact the Financial Aid Office to request an adjustment to your loans.
