Whether you are a new or continuing student you need to make sure you know how you will pay for your education each academic year.  Financial Aid may be an important part of paying for your education so it's important that you familiarize yourself with the Financial Aid process.   

Peak Processing

Your patience is appreciated during this peak processing time of year.

While our traditional timeline for updating documents as received is within 2 to 3 business days, it may take several days (4 to 7) to note your mailed, emailed, or faxed documents as received.  Please do not submit your documents multiple times as this unnecessarily adds to the volume to review.  As a reminder, a copy of your federal tax return does not satisfy the requirement for a Federal tax transcript or IRS data retrieval.

Rather than calling to confirm receipt of your document(s), we kindly request that you wait and check your Online Rams Account after 10 business days of submission.

Verification via the School Servicing Center

If your verification is being processed via the School Servicing Center (SSC), you can track your status at the School Service Center website. SSC will notify you when the process is complete.  Please note that the updating of submitted documents may take 4 to 7 days.  The completion of verification by SSC can take up to 14 business days with awarding of financial aid thereafter taking an additional 5 to 7 days.

Option to Ensure Enrollment for Fall 2014   

At this late juncture, it is advised that you make payment arrangements with the Office of Student Accounts and Cashiering.  This will ensure that course are not purged for fall 2014.
