Financial Aid Information for Registration

2017-2018 Academic Year

  • KNOW THE FINANCIAL AID POLICIES
  • DID YOU KNOW: The U.S. Department of Education requires educational institutions measure students’ progress toward a declared educational objective.  Please review the Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements for receipt of Financial Aid in our Comprehensive Guide to Financial Aid Programs.  You are required to be aware of our Policies and Procedures.
  • FINAL REQUEST LETTERS FOR OUTSTANDING DOCUMENTS: Students should review their Financial Aid Status on the Self-Service system and complete and/or submit any outstanding documents that are still required.  This includes completing the Electronic Master Promissory Note and Electronic Loan Counseling for Loans.  Students who do not submit documents will receive cancellation of aid notices and still have an outstanding balance on their student account, will be put on HOLD for Registration by the Bursar’s Office.
  • Students who did not file a FAFSA for 2017-2018 to obtain a Federal Direct Loan, can still complete the FAFSA at http://www.fafsa.gov.
  • Alternative Loan Processing -- Federal regulations are requiring lenders who offer Educational Alternative Loans to follow extensive requirements. These requirements could delay the receipt of Alternative Loan approvals and disbursements for at least 30 days. Please plan accordingly so these delays do not interfere with registration.
  • Graduating students who have borrowed under any of the Federal Student Loan Programs will be required to complete Exit Loan Counseling.  You can complete this requirement and learn valuable information about loan repayment and deferments at the Federal Student Loan website.  Click on Exit Counseling.
