Students must be registered full-time (there are some exceptions), confirm attendance, and have paid their bill before any scholarship funds are released. The College of Fine Arts will not release funds prior to the first tuition bill payment. If students have other outstanding bills (for example, health bills, parking citations, etc.), these get paid before the award is released.
This means that even if the school has awarded funds that would cover the difference between full tuition costs and a tuition reduction benefit, or funds to put toward insurance costs etc., they will need to pay the first tuition bill upfront in order to release the fellowship funds.
This is especially important for international students who have additional administrative fees and a mandatory student insurance fee applied to their tuition bill each semester. Students will need to clear that balance before fellowship funds will be released.
