Once your FAFSA has been received by the
federal processor, you may be selected for
verification. If selected, the verification process
must be completed before financial aid may be
offered to you. It is essential that all requested

The financial aid office will send your first
award notice via US mail to your permanent
address. Future award notices will then be sent

being offered to you.
We recommend students access
their MyFSU email account on a regular
basis for any pertinent financial updates.

We recommended that you accept or reject each
type of aid within 21 days of receiving the offer
to prevent cancellation of the aid offer. If you are
unsure as to whether or not to accept or reject
a particular type of aid, contact the financial aid
office. For more information on accepting your
