After You Apply
About 1-2 weeks after applying on-line, or 3 - 5 weeks after mailing your application, you will receive a confirmation emailacknowledgement with the results of your application, called a 'Student Aid Report'. If your Student Aid Report indicates that you appear to qualify for a grant, the financial aid office will email you a 'Notice of Missing Documentation' letter shortly after you receive your Student Aid Report. This letter explains what you must do in order to complete your file to be eligible for financial aid.
You will receive a confirmation email about your Student Aid Report. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please check your 'Junk Mail' or 'Bulk Mail' mailboxes.
After Completing Your Financial Aid File
You will not be eligible for payment for any financial aid until your file is complete. This means all outstanding requirements have been satisfied and documentation submitted (check Class-Web). At the minimum, all students must have a valid Student Aid Report (or an electronic version of the report called an 'ISIR' which the college can access) and a Supplemental Information form on file with the college. Some students may be required to complete and submit more forms or provide more documentation than others depending on their individual circumstances this is called Verification. Students will receive a Missing Documentation Letter by email, which will indicate all documents or requirements which must be completed. No financial aid will be released until all requirements are satisfied. The file must be complete.
