Scholarships and Loans

Scholarships and Loans are applied to the statement as received and appear under current payments. 

If you anticipate grants or scholarships from an organization (i.e. Employer benefits or local organizations) that need to be billed, please provide the necessary information to the Student Accounts Office.  We will permit you to defer payment of that portion of the term bill.
