Where do I start?

In order for you to receive financial aid, you MUST complete 3 forms: FAFSA, Master Promissory Note, and Entrance Counseling. Click here for links to all three forms.

What Happens After I Have Applied for Financial Aid?

Notification and Status of Financial Aid Awards

After applying for federal aid, our financial aid staff will review your FAFSA to determine eligibility. Awards will reflect the maximum amount of aid you may borrow each quarter.  Award letters will be posted electronically on NetPartner. If you need to change the award amount, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Disbursement of Financial Aid Funds

Federal Student Aid will be posted to your account for allowable tuition and fee charges prior to crediting your account for other costs such as living expenses.  Excess of funds are provided to you in the form of a live check or directly deposited in your bank account.

Funds are disbursed the Friday of the first week of class, not orientation. Verification of your class attendance must be documented prior to financial aid disbursement.
