- The award funds will first apply towards your tuition if you have a balance on your account. If you do not owe anything at the time of the award, you will receive a reimbursement as you have requested in the past (i.e. via check, Higher OneCard, or deposit). If you are not sure which reimbursement you have chosen, please contact Student Accounting (410-706-8357).
- This award and taking notes will not count as a position of employment within UMB or the University System.
