Awarding and To-Do List Items
- Financial aid award is based on the submission and completion of To-Do List items posted in a student's MySJSU.
- Only students selected for verification will have items posted in their MySJSU and are required to submit To-Do List Items to begin the evaluation process which leads to financial aid award.
- Students NOT selected for verification will NOT have documents assigned in their To-Do List, but should monitor their MySJSU for any changes.
Awarding for the 2018-19 academic year will begin as follows:
- Fall 2018 admitted students: beginning in early March
- Continuing (currently enrolled) students: beginning in July.
- Parents who do not have a social security number will not be able to create a FSA ID and will have to sign their student's FAFSA by completing a signature page and mailing the page to FAFSA.
