Here you have the option to accept, adjust, or cancel any award listed. Federal aid such as the Pell grant and state aid such as the hope scholarship and Zell miller scholarship are already accepted with no further action needed. To accept the full amount of all financial aid listed, simply click on accept full amount all awards. To accept the amount of a specific award you will go to the accept award column and select accept in the drop down box. If you would like to accept only a partial amount of this loan just type in the amount you would like for the aid year in the partial amount column. Make sure the accept is still selected in the drop down box to the left. Also, keep in mind you are filling out this for the academic year. Whatever amount you put in the partial amount column will be automatically divided in half over two semesters. When you are finished, click submit decision. To decline an award that has been offered, just select decline from the drop down box under the accept award offer column. Again, when you are finished, click submit decision.
