Adjustments to Your Financial Aid Offer
The financial aid you have been offered can change for a number of reasons. The main reasons are:
- A change in your student budget. If you originally reported that you were going to live on campus and now you are living in an apartment, your cost of attendance will be less and therefore the amount of aid you are offered will be reduced. You are required to report your actual living situation. If you reported that you were living off-campus but you are actually living with your parents, you could be billed for some of your financial aid.
- If you withdraw, cancel your enrollment, or stop attending all of your classes. Read more about the withdrawal process.
- If you receive outside scholarships, grants, or any other type of award, the rest of your awards will need to be adjusted.
- If your enrollment status changes.
- If you are a fall-semester-only graduating senior, the amount of a Federal Direct Loan for which you are eligible is based on the number of units in which you're enrolled. To receive a $2,750 subsidized Federal Direct Loan, you need to be enrolled in 15 units. Contact the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office if you have questions about your eligibility.
- If we receive information that your FAFSA information has changed.
- If we receive information about other changes to your eligibility for certain awards, such as your major, grade-point average (GPA), or year in school, for example.
- If you have any registration blocks.
