Financial Aid Questions


Who is eligible for financial aid?

You must be a citizen, permanent resident, or have asylum status in order to be eligible for financial aid.  Furthermore, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid(FAFSA).  View our How To File FAFSA guide here.


When will my financial aid be awarded?

Provided all necessary paperwork is completed promptly, loans are normally disbursed by the first day of classes and grants are normally disbursed after the last day to drop without tuition liability.


How do I accept financial aid that has been awarded to me?

After entering Patriot Web, you must go to the Financial Aid tab and choose Accept Award Offer.  You will have to read through and agree to the terms of the award offer before you can select how much of the offer you will accept or decline.
