Review Award Notice

If you — as a newly accepted student — applied for financial aid and submitted all verification information that was requested you should expect to receive an award notice from the Purdue Division of Financial Aid (DFA) in early to mid-March. This will be sent to your email address, which you gain access to by activating your career account. The email notification directs students to view their financial aid offer online in their myPurdue system under the Financial tab. Notifications will also be sent to parents who supplied a parent email address on the FAFSA.

Award letter example

As you review the award notice and Purdue Financial Aid Terms and Conditions, keep in mind that grants and scholarships are types of gift aid that do not need to be repaid. Educational Loans and Federal Work-Study (FWS) are types of self-help financial aid.  Loans must be repaid.  FWS requires work/labor.

All students receive their award notices in myPurdue and will not receive a paper mailing.
