The review process can take four to six weeks to complete depending on the receipt of a completed electronic appeal, requests for additional information, and the time of year the application is submitted. When our office receives the application, a Financial Aid Advisor will contact the student and/or parent via email if any additional information or clarification is needed. Not all application reviews will be approved, warrant a change to the student's EFC, or change a student's original financial aid award offer. Any changes to the student's financial aid award offer will result in an email notifying the student of the change.
