Federal Financial Aid Authorization


By completing your Federal Financial Aid Authorization, you decide how your federal funds pay your charges. Federal law allows the University to use your federal aid funds to automatically pay for tuition, class fees, and room and board on campus. As a student, you may incur additional fees, for example: bookstore, healthcare, health center charges, parking, etc. By selecting "Yes" on the Federal Financial Aid (Title IV) Authorization, you allow the University to automatically pay these additional charges for you. If you choose to not allow the University to pay these fees automatically, simply select "No" when completing your Federal Financial Aid (Title IV) Authorization.
