WHAT HAPPENS TO SCHOLARSHIP CHECKS FROM DONORS

If your scholarship sponsor sends your scholarship check directly to the University, it will be applied to your University student account, one-half in the Fall Term, one-half in the Winter Term, unless the sponsor specifies otherwise. Payments are usually processed within two weeks of the start of each term, upon full-time registration. If the payment creates a credit balance on your University student account, the credit will be released to you either by check or direct deposit to your bank account.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP CHECK

If your scholarship sponsor sends your scholarship check directly to you, you should follow these instructions to make sure it is applied to your University student account:
  • If the check is made out to the University: Bring it to the Office of Financial Aid or send it to us at the address below. 
  • If the check is made co-payable to you and the University: Endorse the check and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid at the address below.
  • If the check is made payable to you only: It is your responsibility to report this resource to us and to apply any funds necessary to your University student account.
