Award Notification

Office of Financial Aid

We are pleased to enclose your financial aid award letter for attendance at Maharishi International University. Please carefully review, firstly, this letter, and then your award letter.

The award letter is valid only if all information is accurate. Is your name correct? Is the academic program and housing preference correct? If any of this information is incorrect, please email any corrections to awardofficer@miu.edu

The package of charges and financial aid listed on your award letter is only for the academic year listed. Charges and aid are subject to change for future years.

Your award may include student loans toward the cost of your education which may be repaid from your income after college. At www.miu.edu/financial-aid please review the following:

  • Award Information: Loans
  • Standards of Academic Progress
  • Reductions in Charges and Financial Aid

Federal Work Study (FWS), if awarded, does not allocate funds to you. The award sets a maximum amount you may earn via hourly wage, if you apply for and are employed by our Human Resources Office in one of our campus FWS jobs. You may apply for available positions after enrollment. The list of jobs is available at https://students.miu.edu/work-study/.

University charges will be posted to Student Accounts after you register for each semester. Awards will also be posted to the same account (except Federal Work Study). Your award letter may require a “payment,” or if your award letter indicates a “refund” for books and personal expenses, please see the refund schedule at https://students.miu.edu/finances/financial-aid-refund-schedule/. You must bring enough cash with you to meet your personal expenses while your refund is processing.

If you are on campus, the housing and meals charges on your award letter do not include winter and summer holidays. You may apply for a job on campus during breaks to cover your housing and meals. If you have a “Full Time/Full Year Dorm” scholarship toward your tuition, this award will remain only if you meet the full time, full year, on campus requirement.

We are required to notify you that if you are convicted for the use of illegal drugs and if the offense occurred while you are receiving federal student aid, you may become ineligible for additional federal student aid for a period of time.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about your award letter or the information contained at https://www.miu.edu/financial-aid.  We look forward to having you join us!

Best Wishes,

Dan Wasielewski
Director of Financial Aid
