Will you be visiting our office at the start of Fall Term? We will have a desk conveniently set up near the Student Services Center on the 2nd floor of the Student Activities Building to accept private scholarship checks. Find us through the 2nd floor stairwell doors or via elevator from the East Jefferson Street building entrance.

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.
