Accepting Awards

Saint Leo University students accept and decline their financial aid awards online through MySaintleo.edu

Students can change the amount of an award initially accepted or request the reinstatement of a declined award by completing the appropriate financial aid form and returning it by fax or email. Reinstatement of campus based federal aid or Federal Work Study will depend on the availability of funding.

Direct Loans require an acceptance decision by the aid recipient before aid can be processed.
