Award Letter


Without a doubt, receiving an acceptance letter is one of the most exciting parts of starting your college journey. But there’s a second letter, called an award letter, that is also vitally important in actually making your dream of earning a degree become a reality.

Award letters are issued by financial aid professionals to organize how students are covering the costs of attending college. Letters use actual costs based on a full-time class load, and include standard room and board, and university fees. Miscellaneous costs like books and supplies vary, so they are not listed on the award letter.
