Late Submission of Documents

We cannot accept verification/other requested documents for a semester more than 60 days after it is over, unless the student is enrolled in the subsequent and current semester. Example: a student enrolled for Fall and Spring can still turn in verification work in the Spring semester and potentially receive a back-pay for Fall as well as financial aid for Spring. If the student does not enroll for Spring, s/he cannot turn in paperwork after 4pm February 9th, 2021. (60 days after the last day of finals in the Fall 2020 semester).
No paperwork for an academic year will be accepted after 4:00 pm on the last day of the last finals of the summer semester of that year. This year, that date is Friday August 6, 2021.
