Course Choice Counts!
The Department of Education is placing an important emphasis on federal financial aid rules that may impact the amount of aid you receive. This is referred to as Course Choice Counts. Specifically, for federal aid to pay for courses in your major, minor, or other degree requirements, it must be part of your program of study or be necessary to earn the total hours required for your degree. Taking courses not a part of your program of study could result in receiving less federal financial aid and potentially having to pay for courses out-of-pocket.
Check Your Financial Aid Status Via the Readiness Checklist
Use the Readiness Checklist to check the status of your financial aid, admission, veteran benefits, holds, balance, and confirmation. Items of importance will be flagged for your attention.
Use our Estimated Cost Calculator, which includes a section to input anticipated financial aid, to estimate future semester charges.
