Accepting and Receiving Your Aid

​​How will I know if I have a financial ai​d award?

You will be notified by email when you have an award. You may also view posted financial aid awards, account summaries and other helpful personal information under the Student Menu in eConnect, our secure online services (login required).

What do I need to do to receive my aid?

  1. Read the Award Letter Information and Instructions for an overview of important topics such as disbursement dates, restrictions, deadlines, award definitions and explanations, costs of attendance, how refunds work, work-study and Federal Direct Loans.
  2. In eConnect, under Financial Aid, click on Financial Aid Checklist, then click on myAwards. This is where you will accept the terms and conditions of any awards for which you are eligible.
  3. For Federal Direct Loans, review How Do I Get My Loan?

How will I receive my financial aid?
