If you are a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, the first way to deal with the Direct Costs of Tuition and Fees is through financial aid. If your financial aid covers the direct costs (tuition and fees), any remaining funds will be refunded to you after the semester starts to cover outside expenses. If your aid does not cover all the expenses at this time, contact Financial Aid to discuss your PLUS loan and Private loan option.
