For new students, Federal Title IV financial aid funds, such as federal student loans and the Pell Grant, are limited to pay for tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board charges only. However, with your permission, this aid can pay for other types of university charges (i.e. health insurance, parking fees, optional student fees, and textbooks).
If you do not authorize your aid to pay additional charges, your financial aid will pay toward your tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board only. Any remaining aid will be refunded to you - even if you still owe the university money. We highly recommend you complete this process to expedite and streamline paying your university bill.
