Forms & Resources
Financial Aid Forms
Beginning March 1, 2018, to ensure the security of your data, the Financial Aid Office will no longer accept documents via email. We strongly recommend submitting materials in person to our office. Doing so will allow our personnel to check your documents for accuracy and advise if anything additional is needed. In the event that you are unable to visit us in person, you must fax your documents to our office at 828-281-9883. If you submit documents via fax, complete and include an official Financial Aid Cover Sheet with your submission. Documents that are submitted via fax without the completed Cover Sheet will not be processed by the Financial Aid Office.
After submitting requested documents to the Financial Aid Office, you can check on their status by logging in to Self-Service and clicking on Financial Aid.
Below are the statuses and their definitions:
RECEIVED – Your document has been received and imaged, but is not yet processed*.
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.
* Processing can take at least 10 business days, and sometimes longer during peak periods.
Please always check your Financial Aid Self-Service account to determine which forms are required before submitting any of the following forms. Please contact us with any questions.
Our forms are now fillable PDF files! You cannot submit them directly from this webpage. You must use Adobe Reader to fill out the documents across all operating systems and devices. Using the Preview app on Apple desktop, notebook, and iOS devices will result in lost data. After completing the documents, save them to your computer prior to printing them for in-person submission or faxing them to our office.
