Managing Your Award

Now that you've earned your award, you'll need to familiarize yourself with its requirements.   

For example:

  • Do you need to be enrolled in a certain number of credits? 
  • Do you need to complete any requirements before the award can be disbursed to your student account? 
  • Do you need to accept the award? 

To find out about your award:

  1. Login to MyPima
  2. Click Financial Aid tab.
  3. Click on the name of the award.
  4. Read the displayed message giving you information about that award. 

Consequences of Changing Your Schedule

If you plan to decrease your enrollment at any time during a term for which you have received a financial aid payment, we highly recommend that you contact a campus student services center to discuss how this will affect your aid. 

You may have to pay aid back if

  • you decrease your credit level below the number of hours that you were funded to attend,
  • you receive a combination of all failing or withdrawn grades for a term,
  • your instructor assigns you a grade of W or I prior to the end of the term.

Dropping courses, withdrawing, receiving incompletes, changing majors, and failing courses all have a negative impact on your aid eligibility.  Review the Satisfactory Academic Progress section for more information.
