Other resources outside of the Financial Aid Office may be awarded to a student to assist with college expenses.

The Financial Aid Office is required to use other resources as part of the financial aid package. It is responsible for preventing federal financial aid over awards. The best practice is for students to inform the Financial Aid office of any outside resources received.
