Forms & Resources
Financial Aid Forms
After submitting requested documents to the Financial Aid Office, you can check on their status by logging in to your WebAdvisor account and clicking on “My Financial Aid Documents” under the “Communication” heading.
Below are the statuses and their definitions:
PENDING – Your document has been received and imaged, but is not yet processed (5 to 10 business days*).
COMPLETED – The Verification team has reviewed your document and it is complete. If all requested documents have a status of “Completed,” the file is complete and you will be awarded soon (awarding occurs on Tuesdays unless otherwise noted).
INCOMPLETE - The Verification team has reviewed the document and further action is required on your part. You will receive communication from the Financial Aid Office as to your next step (you will be called, e-mailed, and will have an indication in WebAdvisor that further action is required).
* This process may take longer during peak periods.
Please always check your WebAdvisor account under "My Financial Aid Documents" to determine which forms are required before submitting any of the following forms. Please contact us with any questions.
Students within our service area must submit documents to the Financial Aid Office in person. Distance students may submit documents via student email or postal service. The Financial Aid Office is no longer able to accept documentation via fax.
2017-18 Financial Aid Forms
2017-18 forms are for fall 2017, spring 2018, and summer 2018 semesters only. Please be sure to complete the 2017-18 FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov if you are interested in applying for financial aid for these semesters.
Forms for the 2017-18 academic year will be available February 15th.
2016-17 Financial Aid Forms
2016-17 forms are for fall 2016, spring 2017, and summer 2017 semesters only. Please be sure to complete the 2016-17 FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov if you are interested in applying for financial aid for these semesters.
Our 2016-17 forms are now fillable PDF files! If you are using a non-Microsoft platform or mobile device, you may need to launch the form in an Adobe Reader app for it to be fillable. Please take advantage of this upgrade and type as much of the information as you can rather than hand writing.
You cannot submit the forms directly from this webpage. You must save them to your computer prior to printing them for in-person submission or sending them as an email attachment. If you are using a mobile device, you should be able to "share" the completed documents as an attachment via email through the Adobe Reader app (use a "flattened" copy so the form is viewable but not editable).
