File Review and Award Offer Timeline for Fall 2017
We have begun reviewing files for students newly admitted to and continuing at SSU for Fall 2017 who submitted all of their To Do List items. If you see the "Review in process" item in your To Do List, your verification documents will be reviewed within 15 business days. The review may result in additional To Do List items being assigned to you. If this happens, you will receive an email notification and you will see the items in your To Do List.
For new students admitted for Fall 2017, we expect to have Award Offers available to view in MySSU by March 17, 2017. When your Award Offer is available, you will receive an Award Offer Notification email from our office.
For continuing students, Award Offers will be viewable in MySSU after Spring 2017 grades are posted in June.
Avoid FAFSA Scams
Filing the FAFSA is FREE. There are companies that may solicit payment from you to file the FAFSA on your behalf, but in most cases this is a waste of your money. If you are asked to give a credit card number or make any kind of payment to complete or file the FAFSA, beware. More information on filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid can be found in our How to Apply section of our website.
