1. ​Meet deadlines: Pay special attention to various deadlines for federal, state and university aid or risk being ineligible for certain types of aid. See i​mportant dates and deadlines.

  2. Meet merit requirements: Some scholarships require a specific cumulative GPA or standardized test score. For more information visit the Office of International Affairs.

  3. Watch your hours of enrollment: Financial aid awards are based on the assumption students will enroll full time during each term. Dropping below full time may have an impact on your aid.
