Financial Aid Recipients

You will be expected to pay tuition, additional fees and health insurance at registration if your financial aid requirements are not complete. 

You MUST complete all requirements at least TWO WEEKS before your registration date. The Office of Financial Student Aid will then notify the Office of Records and Registration that your tuition and fees, with the exception of disability and health insurance, can be deferred at registration. For a full list of requirements, see the Office of Financial Student Aid.

If you are the recipient of a full-tuition scholarship through the school, know that among other non-tuition charges, it does not cover the omnibus fee, student support fee, fitness center fee, health insurance or other charges. You will be required to pay non-tuition charges from another source.

If you are the recipient of a scholarship through an external provider such as the U.S. military or National Health Services Corps, you must submit documentation to the Office of Financial Student Office upon initial acceptance to the program. These programs cover tuition fees and the lowest option single-person health insurance rate. Your tuition fees will be deferred at registration and the university will bill your third-party provider.

Title IV Authorization

  • Under federal law, the university must receive your "authorization" to cover fees other than tuition, registration, omnibus, fitness center and contracted university room and board fees.These other fees are called "authorized allowable charges" and can include, but are not limited to, short-term loans, interest, open registration, orientation, lab and course material fees.
  • To authorize the university to deduct health insurance charges you must complete the online Title IV Authorization Form.
  • If you do not complete the Title IV Authorization Form, the university must assume that you wish to restrict use of your financial aid funds. Restricted funds cover only tuition, registration, student service, fitness center and contracted university room and board fees.
  • If you restrict use of your financial aid funds, you assume responsibility for paying any account balance not covered by restricted financial aid by the specified due date. Fees not paid by the due date are subject to late fees.
