If you've been selected for verification, be sure to submit all financial aid requirements listed on your Student Checklist by June 1st, 2018. This is to ensure that you remain eligible for the maximum amount of financial aid you qualify for. Of course, the earlier you submit your documents, the more quickly you'll move through the process. Turn your documents in now and enjoy your summer!
