  • Check before you drop!  
    After the first week of the term, be sure to meet with a financial aid counselor before dropping coursework. Your aid could be impacted by dropping a course or courses.


  • Know the renewal criteria for each of your awards!                                  Some grants and scholarships require not only that you are a full-time student, but that you earn a certain number of credit hours each year in order to maintain eligibility.
