How to Accept Your Financial Aid Offer

Accepting Your Offer

  1. If you are a new student to UNK, your financial aid offer will be mailed to the address in your MyBLUE, emailed to your preferred email address, and can be viewed in your MyBLUE. If you are a current student at UNK, your financial aid offer will be sent to your Loper email and can be viewed on your MyBLUE.

  2. If you are a freshman starting your first semester at UNK, you will need to register for New Student Enrollment (NSE). UNK Admissions will contact you when it’s time to register.

  3. Scholarships and grants are automatically accepted for you. Work-study and loans will need to be accepted or declined. To accept/decline work-study or loans, log into your MyBLUE. Click on the “Financial Aid” tab, then click on the “Accept/Decline Offers” tab. Click the academic year that you would like to accept/decline your financial aid. Review your Rights and Responsibilities and click “Continue.” Next to “Award Action” use the drop-down menu to accept the full amount, accept a partial amount, or decline the offer. When accepting student loans, only borrow what you will need. Remember that the loans you have been offered are for the full academic year (fall semester, spring semester, summer term).

  4. If you are accepting a federal direct subsidized or unsubsidized loan for the first time, you will need to complete a Master Promissory Note and Entrance Loan Counseling.

  5. Report any outside scholarships that you received in your MyBLUE. You can do this by logging into your MyBLUE, clicking on the “Financial Aid” tab, and then clicking on “Report Outside Scholarships” on the right-hand side of the screen.

  6. Review the financial aid checklists.
