Outside Scholarships

Donors from civic groups, churches, and businesses offer many scholarships to students. Scholarships count toward meeting your financial need. You must report additional aid sources not awarded by the Office of Financial Aid. If your total award(s), including your scholarship(s), exceed your financial need, your aid package may be reduced or withdrawn. This is a federal regulation.  Make sure your donor includes your full name and student ID number on your check
