Paying for College: Completing The To-Do List

The student center to-do list is the key to avoiding financial aid delays. The to-do list is on the right-hand side of the student center and can be expanded by clicking the green triangle.

The to-do list should be considered a high priority, because financial aid cannot be processed until everything in the to-do list has been completed.

Items in the to-do list will vary depending on each student’s situation. The most common to-do list items involve:
  • Admissions 
  • Program eligibility 
  • Verification of dependent or independent status 
  • Master Promissory Note (MPN) 
  • Missing or incomplete documentation
If all of the to-do list items have been completed, students can monitor the status of their financial aid application by clicking the Account Inquiry link in the Finances section of the student center (see image below).
