Report Additional Aid Resources
Additional Sources of Funding
If you receive funding from other agencies, it is your responsibility to report the funding in writing to the Financial Aid Department even if you receive the funding directly. Estimated Financial Assistance (EFA) includes
Your financial aid may be adjusted as required by federal and state regulations to prevent an over-offer situation.
Examples of assistance that must be reported include, but are not limited to funding from the following sources:
- Teaching Assistantships
- Department of Vocational Rehabilitation
- U.S. Department of Defense or any branch of the military
- Department of Employment Security (TAA)
- Work Source
- Department of Labor and Industries (L & I)
- Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)
- or any other agency
Because the combination of these resources and your other financial aid typically cannot exceed the amount of your cost of attendance, your financial aid may be reduced (most often your loans).
You may not be aware of certain resources until after the school year begins, but please note that you are required to report the names and amounts of all types of educational assistance as soon as you are aware of them.
