Step 2:

Complete admission to University College. Shortly after admission, learners are reviewed for financial aid eligibility.

Step 3:

Submit all requested documents. If chosen for verification, complete the verification process. In order to finalize financial aid eligibility, the learner’s financial aid file must be complete.

If you are required to submit documents in addition to the verification process, you can find most documents on the Learner Portal’s Resource Page. Most documents can be mailed, emailed, or faxed to the Office of Student Financial Services.

If the learner’s financial aid file is still incomplete when school begins, all financial aid may be removed, and the learner may no longer be eligible to receive aid for that semester.

To be eligible for and continue receiving federal aid, learners must meet the eligibility requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Education.
