Auggie Parents: Financial Aid Info

Please make sure your student has completed the 2015-2016 FAFSA and turned in all necessary documents to the Student Financial Services Office; the priority deadline was May 1. Students can check what documents are missing, and the status of their financial aid award, by logging into their Augnet account and clicking on “Records and Registration” and then “Track My Financial Aid.” This portal shows documents that may still be missing as well as the award letter once it is finalized.
If all documents are turned in, your student will be emailed their financial aid award letter by July 9, 2015.
