Here are some general reminders to guide you through the financial aid process:

  • You will continue to check your financial aid status via Buff Portal.
  • Financial aid awards will be available the beginning of August.
  • Loans must be accepted online via Buff Portal.
  • Federal Direct and Federal Graduate PLUS loans require a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and entrance counseling to be completed, but typically this only has to be signed the first time a loan is borrowed.
  • Check your campus email for correspondence from our office.
  • We do check your academic progress at the end of each semester, so review the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy to make sure you are not in danger of losing future financial aid.
