Steps After Receiving Award Offer Letter
- After receiving your Award Offer Notification in your student email, you will need to log into your myMadisonCollege account and accept or decline your awards. Awards include both the fall and spring semester, and you will need to accept enough for the entire aid year. The Financial Aid Office will automatically accept all grants and scholarships on the student’s behalf. Students will need to inform the Financial Aid Office if they wish to accept, decline, or change the amounts of their loan offers.
