Award Funding Details for Recipients

How Student Awards Are Issued

Once you've completed the acceptance requirements for an award, the funding will be applied to your student account to offset the costs of tuition for your upcoming term of study. The value of the award may be split up into multiple installments, depending on when it is offered. You should be aware that you must continue to meet award eligibility and stay in good academic standing in order continue receiving installments.  If the award funding creates an overpayment on your student account, you can request a refund for the extra funds.
