Outside Scholarships

Scholarship checks sent to the COD Financial Aid Office from outside organizations on behalf of students require a minimum 2-3 week turnaround time to process the check(s) from the date the check was received in the Financial Aid Office.

Once a scholarship check is ready for pick-up, students will receive an updated award notification on their Self Service Student Portal.

An e-mail notification will be sent out from the Financial Aid Office alerting the student that their scholarship check is ready for pick-up.

Students will need to first go to the Financial Aid Office to pickup their Scholarship Check Clearance Form prior to picking up their check from the Bursar's Office.

Please bring your government issued ID or COD student photo ID.
