The Central Processing System will mail you a Student Aid Acknowledgement Form as confirmation that your application is complete and on file. The other way to receive this information is through an email link. Schools listed on your application will receive a copy of this information called an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR). Be sure to list Chancellor University as one of your choices, school code 003043.

Beginning April 1st

The Financial Aid Office will verify, process, and award those students who have completed the financial aid application process. Financial Aid Award Letters will be mailed to students as they are available.

Accepted financial aid offers are due in the Financial Aid Office no later than three weeks after receipt or certain types of financial aid may be forfeited. Federal Stafford and PLUS loan applications will be certified and mailed to lenders. Watch for a confirmation of loan approval, by mail, from the lender/guarantee agency.

NOTE: If an application is selected for the verification process, all tax returns, verification worksheets, etc. must be received by the Financial Aid Office before the end of the registered semester/term/session or the last date of attendance, whichever comes first.
