    Application review, verification (if selected), and awarding of aid must be completed before aid can be disbursed.
    Authorizing disbursement of aid is contingent on the student’s financial aid file status and enrollment. If a student’s file is incomplete at the time of the scheduled disbursement dates, the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) WILL NOT authorize any award(s) to disburse until after all financial aid holds/incompletes are cleared.

    Please Note:
    Students selected for federal or institutional verification must submit ALL REQUIRED documentation to complete verification no later than November 17, 2018.  OSFA will cancel all award(s) for students who do not submit all required documentation to complete verification by November 17, 2018.  Students will be required to submit all required documents to have award(s) reinstated.  
    Financial aid award information is posted as “Anticipated Aid” on the student’s account until the Office of Financial Aid verifies the student’s actual enrollment for the semester and then authorizes award(s) to disburse.
