Notification of Scholarship Funds Received:

You are required to notify the Center for Student Financial Aid & Scholarships of any scholarship award(s) you receive, even those awarded directly to you. The scholarship staff must include all funding with your other financial aid award(s). If necessary, we may adjust other awards.
