Financial aid will not credit to a student’s account until all outstanding requirements are met, with the exception of work-study contracts.  Here are some reasons aid will not pay:

  • Enrollment: Students must also be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits for undergraduate students) for most forms of financial aid to disburse. 
  • Accepting Loans: Students must accept loans on Trailhead before they will disburse.  Before accepting loans, students must accept the “Terms and Conditions” on the previous tab in Trailhead.  First-time student loan borrowers must also complete Entrance Counseling at
  • Master Promissory Note:  First-time student and Parent PLUS loan borrowers must complete their respective Master Promissory Note at
  • Outstanding Requirements:  Students can find a list of outstanding requirements on Trailhead>self-service>financial aid>eligibility>2017-2018>student requirements.
