In order to conserve financial and natural resources, the Office of Financial Aid does not issue paper award letters for returning students.  Notification of financial aid decisions will be sent to students' Colgate e-mail accounts.

Awards will be determined beginning in May, with applications being processed in the order in which they become complete. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid if you have any questions.
