Student Financial Aid

What Else do you Need to Know?

Certain policies and procedures of the College and the federal and state governments control the awarding and disbursement of financial aid. You should know the following rules to better understand the financial aid process:

  • Aid funds will not be disbursed/credited to any student
    who 1) is financially delinquent to the College, 2) is in
    default on a previously received Federal Perkins Loan,
    Federal Family Education Loan or Federal Direct Loan,
    or 3) owes a repayment to the Federal Pell Grant,
    FSEOG, or KHEAA State Grant programs.
  • You are required to report to Student Financial Aid
    Services any other types of financial assistance you will
    receive during the school year that were not indicated on
    your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA),
    such as outside scholarships. If the sum of your financial
    aid from all sources exceeds the cost of attendance,
    previously awarded financial aid may be adjusted to avoid
    an overaward or you may be obligated to repay the excess.
  • You must maintain a satisfactory level of academic
    progress to remain eligible for government aid, as
    defined in the Student Handbook.
  • Changes in enrollment status or the addition of other
    financial resources may result in adjustment of
    previously awarded financial aid.
  • Outside scholarships received after the financial aid
    award has been packaged, may cause institutional grant
    assistance to be reduced.
