Additional Forms and Documents
In addition to the items listed above, you may be required to submit other forms of documentation such as: proof of U.S. citizenship or permanent residency, income verification, copies of a valid Driver’s License or Social Security Card, proof of Selective Service Registration, and/or proof of non-default. Be sure to review your Student Aid Report (SAR) carefully to determine if you should submit any additional documentation to the Office of Student and Financial Affairs. Your financial aid file can only be processed once you have submitted all required documents. You can view the status of your financial aid file online via your STU MyBobcat Account (login required).
Direct Deposit for Financial Aid Refunds
The University’s Student Accounts Office recommends that all students expecting to receive Financial Aid refunds enroll for Direct Deposit via their STU MyBobcat Self-Service Portal (Banking Information). Having Direct Deposit set up with your bank account ensures you will receive refunds quicker than by mailed check. Any funds applied to your student account in excess of your tuition, fees, and other direct costs will be refunded within 14 days after your student account reflects a credit balance. If you are requesting financial aid funds in excess of your anticipated costs, we recommend you provide your Direct Deposit Information at least 15 business days in advance of your anticipated refund date. You will need to provide the name of your financial institution, along with their routing number and your personal account number. Should your bank information change, it is your responsibility to update your Banking Information. For questions or assistance related to Direct Deposit please contact the University’s Student Accounts Office at 305.474.6977.
