Additional Scholarship Opportunities


If you receive an award from any outside sources, you or your donor should notify Student Financial Services. Federal regulations require that external scholarships be considered part of a student’s overall financial aid package, which cannot exceed the cost of attendance. Once payment from an external scholarship is applied, your financial aid package may be revised to include the amount of the scholarship.
