Financial Aid

Following receipt of all required documents, financial aid awards received by students will be used as anticipated credits against charges assessed. Questions concerning financial aid awards, including which documents must be submitted, should be directed to the appropriate Financial Aid Office:

Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Simon, Nursing & Warner School students

Eastman School of Music students

Students who are sponsored by a third party: employer, government, outside organization, etc., for all or a portion of their tuition and fees can have the third party billed directly by submitting a letter from their sponsor to the Bursar’s Office.  The letter must state the specific charges the sponsor will pay, as well as any additional information they will require before remitting payment.  A letter must be submitted at the start of each academic year.  The student will be billed for the portion of their tuition and fees that is not covered by the sponsor, and is ultimately responsible for full payment of their tuition and fees should the sponsor fail to remit payment.

University employees interested in receiving a tuition benefit should visit the Office of Total Rewards for complete details regarding eligibility requirements and available benefits. Once an employee tuition benefit for a course is approved by the Office of Total Rewards, credited to the student account balance. The process for requesting tuition benefits must be completed by the employee each semester. Employee Tuition benefits for dependent children are processed and approved by both the Office of Total Rewards and the Financial Aid Office before they are credited to the student account balance. If a student is deemed ineligible for their benefit for any reason, the employee tuition benefit will be removed from their student account and they will be billed for the balance of their tuition.

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study is paid to the student directly, in a bi-weekly paycheck, if the student works on-campus.  Therefore, it is not reflected on the student account as an anticipated credit.
