*Dear CSU students who will be enrolled in the Fall 2012/Spring 2013 year. Our office received the following “did you know” information:
I am writing to inform you that cancellation notifications were sent out yesterday for students who did not accept awards we made at the end of April 2012, for the 2012-2013 academic year. All students whose awards were cancelled were notified three (3) times prior to cancellation of their award. If we had an email address on file for the student, the first two notifications went via email and the third notification was sent via regular mail. If we did not have an email address on file, then all notifications went via regular mail. We used the email address and mailing address listed on the FAFSA, unless the student updated them prior to the notifications going out.

Office of Financial Aid
One of the most challenging issues facing students and parents is the financing of a
college education. The Financial Aid Office, within the confines of available funding and
federal, state and institutional policies, makes every effort to assist you in making a
Coppin education financially possible.
Applicants are encouraged to read all information carefully and to seek answers to
additional questions from the staff of the Financial Aid Office. You can reach us by calling
(410) 951-3636 or email at FinancialAid@coppin.edu. This website is provided to help you
better understand our policies, the types of available resources, and our expectations of
you and your family. All students are encouraged to apply for federal aid (including
scholarship recipients). The application is free of cost at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Deadlines must be adhered to and a variety of forms must be completed. Few students can
complete the necessary applications without assistance. Therefore, parents are encouraged to
take an active role in this process by providing assistance in completing the necessary
applications and by providing income information and documents.
