Award Letter


Your UACCH award letter will include all aid awards you have been offered to date based on the information you have provided and funds available to the College at the time of the award.  The availability of funds from federal and state programs is subject to Congressional and state appropriations and to changes in federal and state legislation. Once you receive your award letter, review it carefully. You may accept or decline all or part of your financial aid as directed on the award letter.

By accepting the award letter you are certifying that you understand and accept your rights and responsibilities concerning your financial aid at UACCH and agree to them.  If you do not accept the award as listed on the award letter you must cross out the unwanted award, sign, date and return the award letter to the UACCH Financial Aid Office.
