An overaward can occur when students are awarded other forms of assistance (e.g., scholarships, tuition waivers, loans, etc.) that causes them to exceed their financial need or cost of attendance. As a result of an overaward, students may have portions of their aid reduced or canceled, which may leave an outstanding balance on their student account.

Students should notify the Financial Aid Office in writing immediately if they receive additional awards or funds that were not included in their award package.
