Third Party Private Scholarships
If the Student Accounts Office sends an invoice for a private scholarship, we will post a deferment for the amount of the scholarship. If we are not required to do something for the scholarship to be disbursed, we cannot defer that amount.
Please read your scholarship letter carefully to make sure you have completed all of the steps necessary to have it disbursed. Many scholarships require a copy of the bill, or first semester grades to disburse the scholarship.
If you will be receiving an outside private scholarship and want us to use that amount towards the account, list the scholarship on the back of the statement in box 1 and return the top of the statement so we can notate your account.
If you need any more information, please feel free to contact the Student Accounts Office at 716.286.8375.
If the paperwork from the agency, business or school is mailed to the student we will then need for the student to bring in or mail the paperwork to the Student Accounts Office.
If the Student Accounts Office does not have to complete paperwork for the scholarship to be disbursed - the outside private scholarship will not be deferred on the bill.
