To accept your awards:

Did your award include grants? You do not need to accept them, they will automatically pay to your account based on your credit level. Make sure you read the notes on each grant so you understand the rules.

Did your award include work study? You can accept or decline it in the award notification section. If you want to search for work study jobs, visit the Student Employment page.

Did your awards include federal student loans? Look for the "Loans" section under Financial Aid for instructions and links to the loan acceptance process.
