What if I change my housing status?
Your financial aid award is not only based on your enrollment status, but your housing status as well. If your financial aid award was based on you living on campus, we have calculated your financial aid eligibility based on charges of tuition, room, and Jacket Express. If you move off campus, you are only charged for tuition, which means your financial aid eligibility must be recalculated. Likewise, if your financial aid award was based on you commuting, your financial aid award would not include eligibility for your room and Jacket Express charges and therefore must be recalculated.
It is very important that you report any change in your housing status to the FAO as soon as possible. The FAO will also check for housing status changes two weeks into the semester. Any changes that were not reported before then will require a revision to the financial aid award at that time. It's important that your Award Letter is correct before the semester starts, so be sure to check the most recent Award Letter you received to ensure that your financial aid award was based on your current housing status.
