IDOC Experiencing Processing Delays:

If you are reaching out regarding the delay of your document submission through IDOC, please rest assured that we are aware of the delay and will consider documents based on the date of submission to IDOC, and not based on the date of receipt by the University.

IDOC is currently experiencing extended processing delays, meaning that many prospective students documents have not yet reached Ƶ University's Office of Financial Assistance. If your documents were submitted prior to the application deadline and are received by our office after the deadline, your application is still considered on time.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS

In general, scholarships are given based on merit that is defined by the scholarship program, and grants are given based on demonstrated financial need. A student is considered for Federal, State and Ƶ Need-Based Grants simply by applying for financial assistance from Ƶ University. Some merit-based scholarships require an application process while others do not. In the spectrum of educational funding, scholarships and grants are the "free money,” which do not need to be repaid.
