Step 2: Complete My Financial Aid Application

by wbpart01 last modified Jan 30, 2012 04:07 PM

We receive the results of your FAFSA application electronically. In some cases the U.S. Department of Education requires us to collect additional information from you. You may be selected for a process called “verification” or we may need to resolve conflicting information reported on your FAFSA.  If you used estimated tax return information when completing the FAFSA, remember to update your FAFSA with actual tax information by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool after you file your federal income tax return.

We will notify you by email (or mail if no email address is on file) if additional information is required to complete your application.*

The priority date to have a complete financial aid file for fall is July 1st. A complete financial aid file includes a processed FAFSA and all requested documents, and notice of any outside or U of L scholarships. If you submit requested documents after this date, then you may not have actual or anticipated aid in time to settle your fall bill and will need to settle your charges through other means. Descriptions of other methods for account settlement will be available on the Bursar's Office website. If we receive notification of scholarships after your aid disburses, this could impact your eligibility for your awarded financial aid.

*In most cases, the requested documents will be available on your ULink To Do List. View our ULink tutorials for assistance on how to access these forms.

  • We begin requesting this additional information from applicants as early as February for the upcoming fall, spring, and summer terms.
  • Your Student Aid Report (SAR) will advise you to verify information on your FAFSA and could also indicate that your school may request tax documents.
