Financial Aid Next Steps

Step 1

Verify Your Housing and Enrollment Plans

Verify that your expected housing and enrollment plans are correct. We have determined your Financial Aid Offer based on a double room and blue meal plan. If you will not be living in the housing arrangement specified on your Estimated Financial Aid Offer or have changed your meal plan, please notify the Financial Aid Office so adjustments can be made accordingly.

In order to receive most forms of federal, state, or institutional awards, you must be enrolled full-time (at least 12 credits). If you do not intend to enroll full-time, please notify the Financial Aid Office so adjustments can be made accordingly.

Step 2

Create Your Net Partner Account

Create your Net Partner account. You can view, accept and/or decline your Financial Aid Offer for the entire academic year in your Net Partner account. Half of the award will disburse for the Fall Semester and the second half will disburse for the Spring Semester. Accept or decline your aid in Net Partner by August 15 (Fall starts) and January 5 (Spring starts).

Step 3

Complete Disbursement Requirements

Complete disbursement requirements. If you accept student loans, additional documentation requirements, including Federal Entrance Loan Counseling and Master Promissory Note will be added as Missing Documents in your Net Partner account.

Step 4

Complete Federal Verification Requirements, as applicable

Complete Federal Verification requirements if your FAFSA application was selected for verification. Verification must be completed prior to the finalizing of your Financial Aid Offer. Please refer to the Verification Policy and contact the Financial Aid Office for more information on the Verification Process, including what required documentation must be submitted.

Step 5

Anticipate Your Bill
