Financial aid will only be subtracted as the funds are received by the College, or in the case of student employment, as it is earned. Unapplied financial aid (memo items) can include: scholarships, loans, grants, and student employment.

If a student loan is being used to pay all or part of a semester's balance, the application for such loans should be completed well in advance of any payment deadline. Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to proceed into a new semester while still owing money on her account from a previous semester. The Student Accounts Office may hold or cancel registration for failure to pay.
