Choose, Accept, Decline or Choose later
In the example above, the student has chosen to accept $5,000 of the Subsidized
Stafford Loan, Decline the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, Decide Later about the
Health Professions Loan and Accept all of the University Grant.  Please note: The
Student Financial Aid Office reserves the right to cancel any award not yet accepted
45 days after its offered date.  Choosing Decide Later does not negate this right.

In the example above, the Subsidized Stafford Loan and University Grant are shown
as accepted in the amounts indicated by the student.  The Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
no longer appears, as it was declined.  The Health Professions Loan is still offered and
will remain so for 60 days from its offered date. 
Please note:  If you decline or accept
a partial amount of a Stafford Loan and later want to request these funds, you may
not do so on SimsWeb. 
You must contact your counselor.

The example above shows a student who has both Unsatisfied and Satisfied Requirements.  When the necessary document(s) to satisfy a requirement is submitted and processed by the Student Financial Aid Office, the requirement will move from Unsatisfied to Satisfied.

  Tips

  • When accepting a partial amount, type a whole amount in the box - no decimals/cents!
  • If you accept an incorrect Stafford Loan award amount, call our office as soon as possible so that we can reset your awards for you.  If you wait until after your loans are processed, you will have to contact your counselor and complete a Loan Adjustment Authorization Form, which may delay your disbursement(s).
