The Financial Literacy Workshops are mandatory for any student receiving institutional aid.
We welcome and encourage all students to attend these workshops as they will offer guidance in making sound financial decisions.

Institutional aid includes any funding granted to a student by the university. For example: all athletic aid, choir, band, Residence Hall Advisors, Auxiliary, departmental scholarships, etc.

If you plan on receiving this aid for the following year, you must attend four (4) Financial Literacy workshops this academic year to receive the funding the upcoming year.


 

Verification Process


Each year a portion of students' financial aid applications nationwide are chosen for random "verification": a process of confirming certain information supplied by you and/or your parents on the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Some students are selected for verification by the US Department of Education, while the institution could select other students.  Students must submit the required documentation and be verified before receiving a financial aid award.


IMPORTANT: As a first-time user of this site, students will need to click create account and establish an account using their preferred email (required for email notifications regarding documents) and cell phone number (optional for text alerts regarding documents).


Common Documents that must be submitted for Verification

The verification process can be different for each student. Common documents that must be supplied for verification include:
