- Financial Aid Application Tips
Apply early and remember deadlines!
Financial aid budgets are limited. Priority will be given to students who meet deadlines.
Keep a copy.
It is unusual, but sometimes things get lost. If you keep a photocopy of everything you send to the IRS, the federal processing center, and the Office of Student Financial Services, you will save yourself work and frustration if we request additional documents.
Ask questions if you don't understand.
During the busiest times in the office (spring and summer), electronic mail responses can be faster and more complete. Our address is email@example.com.
Read instructions and respond promptly.
We try to keep the financial aid process as smooth as possible. If we ask you for something extra, it is because we need it to comply with regulations or to clarify something in your application. Accuracy and a quick response from you move the process along.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to make sure you finish your financial aid application. We will try to keep you up to date on your progress with reminders, but you are responsible for taking action.
Financial aid must be applied for every year. Our office will electronically send reminders in the Spring regarding the re-application process. (Electronic filers: keep track of your PIN.)

If you are selected for verification, you will receive an email from our office introducing you to KHEAA and will subsequently receive communication from KHEAA themselves. It is imperative to complete this process as soon as possible so we can complete your file and finalize your Offer of Financial Assistance. Returning students will not be awarded until verification is complete. You can set up a KHEAA account by going to www.kheaaverify.com/marietta.
