Quick Tips
Earning Scholarships May Impact Aid 

Outside scholarships may impact other resources in your total financial aid award.  All resources intended to cover educational costs must be coordinated due to financial aid regulations. If a reduction of other aid must occur, loans or  Federal Work-Study will be decreased first whenever possible.
