Applying for financial aid starts with a single application called the FAFSA. Students are automatically considered for all forms of federal financial assistance by completing the following steps:
Your FAFSA may be selected for verification. In this case, you will be required to submit additional documentation in order for financial aid to be awarded. Students should monitor the above mentioned To-Do List for Verification information.
Students should submit all verification documents to the Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible. Waiting to submit the required documentation later than approximately three weeks before classes begin, could delay your financial aid being awarded before the tuition deadline. If your financial aid is not complete by the tuition deadline, or your tuition is not paid in full prior to the first day of class each term, students run the risk of being cancelled for non-payment of fees.
