What is a scholarship overaward?
An overaward happens when the amount of your scholarships is greater than your tuition and fees balance. That excess amount is called an "overaward." Because you are an international student, additional tax paperwork must be completed before it can be paid directly to you.
If you received an email from ISS notifying you of a scholarship overaward, then please follow the directions on this page to get your award. All information on this page is specifically for overaward scholarships to international students (primarily in F-1 or J-1 student status) in degree programs. This information is not meant for other situations.
