How to Accept Your Award

You will be notified via email once your financial aid award is generated.  Your notification email is not your award letter but will contain information about your award and your cost of attendance.  Be sure to read the notification email in its entirety as it will contain important information about next steps.  Financial aid awards can be found by logging on to the University portal and must either be accepted or declined. 

  1. Visit: my.hofstra.edu
  2. Log in with your Student Network ID and your password
  3. Read the FERPA agreement and click “OK” if you agree
  4. Open the primary navigation menu (icon at top-left corner)
  5. Select “Financial Aid Services”. From here, you may achieve a number of tasks:
