Canceling Aid for Non-payment of Enrollment Deposit

Policy
Purpose: 

Provide information on the cancellation of aid due to non-payment of enrollment deposit.

Applies to: 

New degree seeking undergraduate freshmen.

Campus: 
Lawrence
Policy Statement: 

The Office of Admissions (ADM) requires that all new degree seeking undergraduate freshmen pay a $350 new student fee by May 1. Students who do not pay by May 1 will forfeit their admission and the ADM will cancel their admission. The ADM will notify the Financial Aid and Scholarships (FAS) and the student’s financial aid package will be canceled.

When a student files the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and receives an aid package, but does not pay the $350 new student fee, the student’s admission will be canceled and the student's financial aid package will be canceled, as well. The procedure for requesting reinstatement of the canceled aid is as follows:

  1. The student must be admitted and request in writing that the financial aid be reinstated.
  2. Once the written request is received by the FAS, the aid will be reinstated, if funds are available.
  3. If funds are not available, the student will be put on a waiting list for any available funding during late awarding.
  4. The student must accept the re-awarded aid on Enroll and Pay.
