Have you been awarded an Outside Scholarship?

Congratulations! Visit our Managing Outside Scholarship Awards for information on how our office handles outside scholarship checks. 

Please note that federal financial aid regulations require that the financial aid awards you receive cannot exceed your student budget. It is possible, therefore, that outside scholarships could reduce a component of your package of financial aid awards. We may need to reduce your financial aid awards by the amount of the outside resources received to ensure that your total awards do not exceed your student budget. In these cases, the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office attempts first to reduce loan or work aid; scholarships are only reduced as a last resort.
