Award Schedule

New students entering fall semester are awarded beginning in March each year. New students will receive a financial aid award letter once all Admissions and financial aid application requirements are completed. The award letter contains instructions on how to acknowledge the terms and conditions of your award online (see below). Please note that financial aid will not disburse until the acknowledgment is completed online.

Currently enrolled students returning for the fall semester are awarded in mid-May each year, after the conclusion of the spring semester. Students may view their application status and award online (see below), and an e-mail message is sent to CSU-Pueblo e-mail accounts whenever there are outstanding requirements or action has been taken. Please note that financial aid awards will not disburse until the terms and conditions are acknowledged online through PAWS.

PAWS - Personal Access to Web Services, allows students to access a variety of new Web student services, including the ability to:

  • View/Print Financial Aid application status, award, and disbursements.
  • View/Print student employment disbursements, and student payroll check/stub details.
  • View/Print a summary of their disbursements from grant/scholarships, loans, and student employment per semester.
  • View their current bank EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer) account information and stop fund transfer into the account.

Please note that PAWS is only available to those students who have been assigned a Personal Identification Number (PID).
