Financial Aid Forms

Bear Verification

Verification is a process of comparing submitted documents to information listed on a FAFSA. The Department of Education randomly selects students for this process each year. You will be notified by our office if you are selected. All documents need to be submitted through Ursa

Deadline for completing the verification process: If selected, the deadline for an otherwise eligible student to complete the verification process for all federal aid programs is the date established annually in the Federal Register or 120 days after the last day of the student's enrollment, whichever is earlier.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal

The Department of Education specifies that a student must be meeting SAP standards to continue to receive financial aid. Please see our "Maintaining your Aid" page for more information.
