Returning Student Request for Additional Financial Resources

Instructions & Criteria
The Additional Resources form is intended to be a need-based “last-dollar award” that fills in the gap between financial aid, the students and their family’s resources, other outside aid, and the actual costs of tuition, mandatory fees and on-campus housing and meals plans. (Note: Funds awarded to cover room costs will not exceed the cost of a standard double room ($7,750 annually for 2022-23).
