Financial Aid Application Procedure
The content contained in this section is subject to change based on federal and state regulations. Financial aid is designed to bridge the gap between the costs of attending UVU and what students and their families are expected to pay. To be considered for financial aid:
To ensure your financial aid funds are available to you on the first day of each semester, you must have a completed financial aid file by the following dates. A completed file means all required documents have been accurately completed and submitted to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office, and have been reviewed and satisfied by our office. Documents submitted that are pending or incomplete are not considered completed. In addition, all eligibility requirements must be met. It may take at least four weeks to process accurately completed documents; therefore, all accurately completed documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office at least four weeks before the dates listed.
In order to process your financial aid application, you must have a valid FAFSA and must meet all eligibility requirements by the last day of the semester for which you are enrolled or June 30, 2015, whichever is sooner. Files will not be processed beyond this date. Students may only be awarded retroactively in the aid year for semesters during which they met and maintained Satisfactory Academic Progress standards.
Clearly label all pages of all forms or documents with your name and UV ID. All forms or documents must be signed. Failure to sign and label all paperwork with your name and UV ID will delay your financial aid.
The Financial Aid Award
Awards for each of the Federal and State Student Aid programs are based on some form of financial need; beginning with a student’s cost of attendance (COA). Unlike scholarship programs that may award funds based on academic merit, need-based grants, loans, and work study are based on the family’s demonstrated financial need for assistance. Financial need is also determined by the student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is calculated by the information listed on the FAFSA.
The COA is an estimate of the student’s educational expenses for a period of enrollment. The types of costs that may be included in a student’s COA are determined by law. The amounts associated with the types of costs are determined annually and can be viewed on the Financial Aid and Scholarships website.
In addition the Federal Government has established eligibility requirements the student must meet. If all eligibility requirements have been met and financial need is demonstrated, assistance from scholarships, grants, loans, or part-time employment may be offered. All awards are calculated based on each academic year. Students must complete a FAFSA application each year.
Students will be notified about their eligibility requirements through their UVLink accounts. Notice of their financial aid award will be sent to their UVLink account. For further information the financial aid awards please see the Financial Aid and Scholarships website www.uvu.edu/financialaid.
