Changes to financial aid awards

Your eligibility for need-based financial aid may change when you receive additional scholarships, depending on your level of demonstrated financial need and the amount of need-based financial aid you have been awarded.

If your level of demonstrated financial need is being met with federal, state, or university need-based programs, this additional scholarship funding will result in your need-based financial aid being reduced.

Reductions in need-based financial aid eligibility will occur in the following order:

  1. Stafford Loan (Subsidized)
  2. Perkins Loan
  3. Work-Study
  4. Puget Sound Grant programs

Puget Sound grant programs are university need-based awards and will be reduced in a financial aid package if the total amount of all scholarships combined with the grant assistance exceeds your level of demonstrated financial need.

Verification of enrollment

Many organizations require a student to provide verification of their enrollment before sending the scholarship funds. Please send verification requests to:
