Registration Information

Intersession and Spring 2023 Registration

  • KNOW THE FINANCIAL AID POLICIES
  • 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 Entrance Counseling.  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 2022-2023 to obtain a Federal Direct Loan, can still complete the FAFSA at studentaid.gov/fafsa.  Federal loans must be certified before the semester ends or student is no longer enrolled.
  • Loans & Financing Options:  Have an outstanding balance?  Review the financing options that are available.  Please plan accordingly so 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 studentaid.gov website and click on Exit Counseling.
