Viewing Your Award

After you complete your financial aid application, Student Financial Aid will conduct a full evaluation of your financial need and determine your eligibility for aid.  

Current students can view their financial aid award and the status of their financial aid application on Path@Penn. If your application is incomplete, you can review a list of missing documents. 

Prospective undergraduate students who have completed a financial aid application can view their financial aid eligibility in their admissions portal and will also receive a printed award notice in the mail along with their admissions decision.
