Please note: If you receive an outside scholarship, you are required to notify the Financial Aid office. Outside scholarships reported to our office will appear as an anticipated credit on your student bill until October each academic year. At that time, any outside scholarship that has not been received by the University will no longer appear as a credit. Contact the Financial Aid office with questions or concerns.
