1. New students must complete the admission application and receive notification of acceptance before financial aid can be awarded.

Returning students are required to be meeting the Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress which can be found at  

4. If you are selected for verification, please complete that process as promptly as possible.  Click here to review the detailed explanation of the verification process.

5. If you or your family’s financial circumstances change after you have submitted your FAFSA, contact our office regarding possible adjustments. Visit for a Special Circumstance Form.
