Verification Documents Deadline:

Policy requires that any required documents for the 2018-2019 academic year be submitted no later than 75 days after your last day of attendance, or August 20, 2018, whichever is earlier. Failure to submit your documents by this deadline will disqualify you from receiving federal financial aid for that academic year and may require repayment of funds already received. Required documents are found on your financial aid student portal. Carefully read all the instructions for your documents, as they cannot be processed unless they are completed correctly. Electronic signatures are not accepted unless prompted and verified as part of the document completion process.
