What kind of money might I receive?
The most common type of money we disburse to students are funds left over from financial aid awards, loans or grants after tuition has been paid. Students receiving these funds have usually requested this additional support to help with books and living expenses. Other types of money may include reimbursement for tuition overpayment or a dropped class.
