Overpayment of Aid

View policy pdf: Overpayment of Aid Policy

Circumstances may change after a student’s aid has been awarded, disbursed, and refunded which results in the overpayment of aid.  For instance, the student may receive a scholarship or grant from an outside organization after the initial awarding of aid for the term.  An overpayment exists whenever a student’s aid package exceeds his or her need or a student’s award exceeds his or her cost of attendance (COA).  In general, a student is liable for any overpayment made to him or her.
