Offer Notification and Accepting Aid

Once accepted to the Charles E.

The Office of Medical Student Financial Aid will notify all students when the awarding process starts each year. Any scholarships you may have been awarded will be posted the week before classes begin, once all requirements are met.

This form and a copy of the outside scholarship/grant or other resource must be submitted to the Office of Medical Student Financial Aid. You may scan and email these documents to

Official Financial Aid offers will be posted and accessible to you through your My FAU account. Students will have the option to accept, reduce, or decline any aid that has been offered. Incoming first year students must accept their financial aid through their My FAU account at least two weeks prior to the first day of Orientation, to ensure funds are received by the first disbursement date: usually the second day of Orientation. Continuing students should accept their funding no later than one week before classes begin to prevent delay of receipt of funds.
