If a student's financial aid eligibility has not been determined before the start of the semester, the student will need to be prepared to pay for tuition, fees, and books out of pocket or will need to set up a tuition payment plan.  Once eligibility has been determined, the student will be reimbursed the amount of financial aid for which he/she is eligible minus any funds due to the College.
