Do I have to accept my entire financial aid award?

Please make certain you have arranged to pay your entire bill, either from financial aid or your own resources or classes might drop. Borrow no more than is absolutely necessary. You may decline your loans, accept a portion, or accept all through your My NOVA account. Always accept subsidized before unsubsidized, and remember that you will receive half the accepted amount, less fees, each term. Summer is a separate loan period, but the annual limit does not increase for summer. You may decline FWS if you do not need or want a job on campus or as a reading tutor. Grant money does not have to be accepted since grants should not be declined.

If you plan not to attend NOVA, you should send an email from your NOVA email address to with the subject line "Not attending-cancel my aid".
