IMPORTANT: Federal Financial Aid Guidelines
Receipt of funds/awards could impact a student's financial aid package.
Due to Federal Guidelines, except for wages from employment, funds provided to a student receiving federal financial aid will count against their financial aid award package regardless of whether the student is enrolled during the term in which the funding is provided. If your total financial aid, including any new offers, exceeds your eligibility for financial assistance during the academic year, your aid may be limited in a future term or reduced from previously received assistance.
Given the potential for impact on a student's financial aid package, the student is encouraged to contact the Office of Financial Aid with questions or concerns about how an award may impact their financial aid.
Unless specified in the award eligiblity guidelines, financial aid status will not be part of the review process. Once a student is selected, the department will work with the Office of Financial Aid and/or the LSA Scholarship Office to determine how the award can be provided.
You can learn more about financial aid terms and conditions on the Office of Financial Aid's (OFA) website. If you have questions or wouldlike to consult with someone about your particular situation, please contact OFA.
