  • In early April, we will mail Financial Aid Award Offers to new students.
  • Grants, scholarships, and work-study are automatically accepted for you.
  • Loans must be accepted online via your student portal.
  • Federal Stafford and Federal Graduate PLUS loans require a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and entrance counseling to be completed, but typically this only has to be signed the first time a loan is borrowed.
