Does ALAS pay for my tuition even if I qualified for financial aid?
Yes. If you received students loans, ALAS will reimburse the cost of your tuition or the remaining balance that may not have been covered through loans.
If you received any type of scholarship, grants, or work study you must report this to ALAS, this will affect the funding provided for you, as these are all monetary funds coming from the federal government and cannot be provided twice.

Items NOT covered are: magazine subscriptions, electronics, computers/printers, paper, and binders.
What do I need to turn in to be reimbursed?
In order to be reimbursed for books you must turn in all original receipts that show proof of purchase.
