Add additional costs to the standard cost of attendance
You may add documented costs for daycare, health insurance premiums, or a 1-time computer purchase. Submit a form with your documentation. Forms are located here.
Complete each semester’s registration including independent study credits as soon as possible. Registration delays will cause financial aid disbursement delays. We process financial aid based on your actual registration. Let us know if your plans change: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 651-290-6403.
No Obligation to Borrow
You are not obligated to borrow loans. You may borrow from only one loan program. You may borrow less than the offered loan amounts. Indicate your expected loan amounts on your Financial Aid Eligibility Letter REPLY sheet.
Remember to include 1% for subsidized/unsubsidized loan fee, and 4% for grad PLUS loan fee. You may send us an email anytime requesting changed loan amounts.
Financial aid – including scholarships – is applied to your student account after the semester drop-add registration period has ended. The first student statement of each semester reflects charges based on your registration on the day the statement was issued. Credit balance checks—funds borrowed for books and living expenses are available in the Finance Office, room 276 of the LEC building.
