Financial Aid Recipients
Students who receive a Financial Aid award letter may deduct
each certified award amount (signified by an “A” rather than an “E” in
the ACT field on the award letter) from their balance due. Lender fees
(usually 3%) should be deducted from each loan award, excluding Perkins
loans. When an “E” appears in the ACT field, this usually indicates an
action is required before the award will be credited to the student’s
account. In these cases, students must contact Student Financial
Service at (203) 576-4568 for assistance in determining which action is
necessary for the financial aid to be credited to their account. Please
note work-study awards are not deducted from the amount due
since the student will be eligible to earn up to this amount through
student employment. Federal Regulations require the University to issue
a paycheck directly to the student for hours worked.
Deferment of All or Part of Tuition
Students eligible for an external scholarship or for whom an
employer pays their tuition may qualify for the direct billing option.
Students are responsible for obtaining a Tuition Voucher from their
sponsor for each registration period and to ensure that it is received
either at the SFS Office by the tuition due date for each semester.
Vouchers will only be accepted in lieu of payment as long as the
sponsoring agent assumes responsibility for payment upon receiving an
invoice from the University. Official transcripts will not be released
until all financial obligations to the University have been satisfied.
Payments can be sent to the University of Bridgeport via wire
transfer for the necessary account information and wire transfer
instructions. Please contact Pat Varvella at email@example.com
