Tuition and fees are typically due before orientation. Visit this site for more details: http://smu.edu/bursar/Webpay.asp
How can I apply for Federal student loans (for US citizens and Permanent Residents only)?
Once you have completed your 2011 Federal Income Tax return, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
The FAFSA should be filed as soon as possible. FAFSA information received after July 1, 2012 is subject to a delay in the awarding process.
For questions related to non-scholarship forms of funding or financial aid, including federal and private loans and tuition payment options, please contact Barbara Waters at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-768-2371.
Are scholarships available throughout my 2 years at Cox?
Students are awarded scholarships upon admission. If this information was not indicated on the acceptance letter, you did not receive a scholarship award. Scholarships are only offered during the admissions process.
