Financial Aid eligibility currency over campus image

Students must have a current iSEP (Individual Student Education Plan) on file in order to receive their full financial aid award.

If you are a student, be sure to check in with counselors regularly to assess your iSEP, help you stay on track and update your plan if needed. Counseling appointments can be scheduled online.

Although a course may not qualify for financial aid, it can still be invaluable to your academic success. Talk to a counselor and reach out to your professors and other academic advisers to ensure you are taking the right courses — take charge of your education!

The BOG Fee Waiver is not affected by course eligibility. If a student has been awarded a BOG Fee Waiver, it will cover the enrollment for all courses, even those not required for the student’s major. However, the student’s total financial aid award may be reduced.

More information about financial aid course eligibility is available online.
