We communicate to students through UVLink and UVLink email. Your financial aid will not be processed until we have received all necessary documents. Additional requirements may be added at any time.
You are responsible for your tuition charges, regardless of your financial aid. Classes will be dropped for nonpayment if your tuition is not paid by the tuition deadline. Financial aid will not disburse before the drop deadline. If you are receiving financial aid and have completed all financial aid requirements, your classes will not be dropped. You can confirm your classes will not be dropped by checking your financial aid status on UVLink.
Apply early! You can apply for 2013-2014 as early as January 1, 2013, or after you have completed your 2012 taxes.
In order to process your financial aid application for the 2013-2014 aid year, we must have correct and complete information by the last day of your enrollment or June 30, 2014, whichever is sooner. Files will not be processed beyond this date.
To avoid delays, you must use your full legal name as it appears on your Social Security Card. You will be required to correct any discrepancies before you can receive your financial aid.
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. Allow 3-5 business days for faxed documents to be updated in UVLink.
The fastest way to receive your excess financial aid funds is to enroll in eRefund, which allows your refunds to be directly deposited into a bank account of your choice. To set up eRefund, you will need your bank routing and account numbers.
