How to Accept Financial Aid Awards

Nervous About Accepting Your Aid? 

We understand that you may be nervous about accepting your financial aid award. What if you change your mind and decide not to attend Ferris, or what if you get a scholarship or some other financial aid later and don't need a loan that you have accepted?

No worries! Students are protected by federal financial aid regulations. If you accept student loans now and change your plans or change your mind later, you may easily cancel your student loans by emailing us a request to do so. There are no tricks - we are here to work for you.
