Title

Accept your Financial Aid Package

Once the student has received notification pertaining to the completion of their financial aid package, there are a few steps they must take to ensure their financial aid is in place for the year.

Please note:

No aid, federal or institutional, will be disbursed to the student account before these steps are completed. This means that even if a student is not receiving Title IV funds, they’re still required to fill out these forms for any merit aid to disburse.

What is Title IV Authorization?

Title IV authorization allows us to apply Title IV funds to all charges on a student’s account, including additional fees assigned by other departments (including, but not limited to, fees assigned by the health center, library, or parking services). The form will allow the student to choose what charges they would like Title IV funds applied to, and how credit balances should be handled.
