The Financial Literacy Workshops are mandatory for any student receiving institutional aid.
We welcome and encourage all students to attend these workshops as they will offer guidance in making sound financial decisions.

Institutional aid includes any funding granted to a student by the university. For example: all athletic aid, choir, band, Residence Hall Advisors, Auxiliary, departmental scholarships, etc.

If you plan on receiving this aid for the following year, you must attend four (4) Financial Literacy workshops this academic year to receive the funding the upcoming year.


 

Tuition & Costs


It is essential that students and families understand the cost to attend college. When reviewing your financial aid package, you must DO THE MATH to ensure you have enough money to cover the direct educational cost, which is inclusive of tuition, fees, room, and board. The indirect cost, which includes, books & supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous are items that can be covered if a student exceeds the financial aid needed to cover the direct cost. In most cases, if a student has more aid than needed, they will receive a refund check. (NOTE: Students will not receive a refund for non-refundable scholarships.)
