Additional Notes

A Work-Study award will not be applied toward a student's bill. Work-Study funds come as a paycheck if a student works a Work-Study funded job on campus. 

The federal government charges a loan fee on all federal student loans. The loan fee is a percentage of the total loan amount proportionately deducted from each loan disbursement. The loan fee cannot be waived. View the amount listed under the Net Award heading to see the dollar amount that will be disbursed to your account.
