Yet another update from Student Financial Services

This time, I have some numbers for you.

572 of you have not submitted your UFAA. It is on your to-do list in the SIS and Student Financial Services has emailed you about this. If you do not submit this form, a financial aid package can not be created for you. Check your to-do lists!

463 of you are still in review. You have submitted all of your documents and the aid officers are working as quickly as possible to get your packages completed.

Comparing the numbers I was given yesterday to those I got this morning, they seem to be moving very quickly. Hang in there...I know this is stressful, but I also know that Student Financial Services is trying to be thorough and fair in awarding your aid.

As always, you can contact the Office of Student Financial Services with questions, but realize that they are probably getting hundreds of calls each day, so you may have to wait to speak with someone.
