Confirmed and verified grant and scholarship funds may credit to your account in the amount listed on your Financial Assistance Award, if applicable. Most loans have guarantee fees which will be deducted prior to disbursement of the loan. This means that the loan proceeds that are credited to your student account may be less than the amount listed on your award. Federal Work Study and the Pepperdine Work Program should also be a consideration. The amount for the work offer cannot be used up front for payment on your student account and will not be subtracted from your account balance as a financial assistance resource. The student is required to find employment and he/she will receive a paycheck bi-weekly based on total hours worked.
