    Financial Aid Process

    Like any financial obligation, receiving funding for college is more than just completing an application.  Use the following sections of the website to review some of the other steps involved in the financial aid process.  Students and parents are also encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions.

    How to Apply

    The first step in the financial aid process is to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).  Students who are interested in aid for Summer and/or Winterim terms should understand there are additional application materials required for those terms. 

    After the FAFSA

    FAFSA errors are common so it's important to review the information to make sure everything is accurate.  Also, certain situations will require students to submit additional documentation.  Watch the To Do list in WINS.

    Verification

    Approximately 30% of students will be selected for verification by the Department of Education.  Financial aid cannot be awarded until the verification process is complete.

    Eligibility

    Financial Aid Administrators often hear the phrase, "I'm not eligible for any aid."  Most students are eligible for some form of Federal Student Aid. 

    Award Notification

    Beginning April 1, award notifications are mailed to new students and emailed to continuing students for the upcoming academic year. 

    reCEIVING YOUR AID

    Financial aid will not disburse until the beginning of the term for which the aid has been awarded.  Certain aid types, like loans, require additional steps in order for the aid to disburse.
