How do I accept, decline, or revise my financial aid award?

We assume that you want any scholarships, need-based grants, or work-study amounts that you've been offered, and you don't have to accept these awards. However, any Federal Direct Stafford Loans (subsidized and/or unsubsidized) require additional steps before we can credit them to your student account. We encourage you to carefully consider your educational expenses and try to limit how much you borrow if possible.

To accept, decline, or revise your award, log in to Lesley's Self-Service portal and select "Financial Information", "Financial Aid", and then "Financial Aid Home" from the menu on the left sidebar. This will take you to the Self-Service Financial Aid portal where you will see your full financial aid checklist displayed. If you have not reviewed and accepted your financial aid award, you’ll see that option highlighted in yellow with an "Action Needed" icon displayed beside it.

You can accept, decline, or revise this award by selecting "Review and accept your Financial Aid Award Package" on the item on your Financial Aid Checklist. This will take you to the "My Awards" page. You can also navigate to this page directly by selecting "My Awards" under the "Financial Aid" menu.
