Complete Verification*

*If your FAFSA was selected for verification

  • From time to time, the financial aid office may request that you send additional information to the college. This may be because your FAFSA has been selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education, or it may be miscellaneous information is needed to determine financial aid eligibility.
  • If selected, you will be notified by email and given instructions.

  • If you have received credentials to login to Populi, login and accept your aid on your financial aid page:
  1. Once you login, in the light gray area click the Financial tab

  3. Under each award, click Accept
  • Learn more about the Funding Estimate.

Apply for Loans

  • If your Funding Estimate includes loans, you may apply for loans up to the maximum amounts listed on it.

Things to Note

  • Completing this checklist and finalizing financial aid does not mean the student has completed the admissions process, has completely enrolled in classes, or that their bill is taken care of. Students must remain in contact with those departments to ensure completion of those processes.
  • Because the funding estimate is not a bill, the student must still communicate with the Student Accounts department regarding actual charges and bill payment.
