Student Financial Services has two timelines at the beginning of each awarding year. Awarding for admitted freshmen begins March 1 and, for continuing students, mid-April. Once SAIC receives the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from the Department of Education, and depending on your awarding timeline, it can take one to two weeks to be awarded financial aid.
If additional documentation is required to complete the awarding process for admitted freshmen, the student will receive a notice requesting the needed documentation. Continuing students should check their To-Do List on SAIC Self-Service to avoid any delays in processing.
