Continuing in 2019-2020

Continuing in the 2019-20 aid year, the Financial Aid Office will not be sending paper Financial Aid Notifications (FANs) to upper-class continuing and readmitted students.

Students will receive an email in late May / early June when their Financial Aid Package is available for review via the Knighthub in myCU. Depending on the types of aid in the Financial Aid Package, a student may need to take further action before the package is finalized.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If the financial aid package includes Federal Direct Loans and/or a Clarkson Loan, the loans will not be processed until the student has either Accepted, Declined, or Reduced the loan(s) and submitted the response online in the Financial Aid section of myCU. Loans offered, but not accepted, will not appear as anticipated aid on the student account.

We have created two guides to assist you in this transition – Guide to Understanding Your Financial Aid Package and Viewing Your Financial Aid in myCU.

You will receive an email notification when the initial package is created and each time a revision is made to the package.

If you have questions, please contact your Student Administrative Services Representative as listed below at 315.268.6451.
