Overawards

Federal and/or State Financial Aid recipients may not receive funds in excess of Financial Need and/or the Cost of Attendance. This may occur when students receive funds from other sources or agencies. When an overaward occurs, the Department of Student Financial Aid is required to adjust the student's financial aid. A student may be required to repay funds due to the loss of eligibility. To prevent an overaward, notify the Department of Student Financial Aid of any assistance you receive that is not listed on your award letter. Examples of other aid include scholarships, military benefits, and Vocational Rehabilation benefits.
