Non-University Awards

Many students receive educational financial aid awards—including scholarships, grants, waivers, or educational loans—through sources other than Financial Aid Services. If you receive non-university aid awards, you must report them.

If you receive aid through another source after receiving your UMass Amherst award letter, Financial Aid Services may be required to adjust your need-based aid. In most cases the additional aid will be applied toward your remaining need before your loans, work-study, grant, or scholarship aid are reduced.

You can report outside financial aid awards by filling out the form on the reverse side of your award letter and returning it to Financial Aid Services.
