Changes to the Financial Aid Process
Student Financial Services has made some changes to the financial aid process. If you are current financial aid recipient and will be returning next year here is what you can expect after you file your 2006-07 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA): .You will receive an email from Student Financial Services requesting further information if, in order to create your financial aid package, additional documents are required. .You will receive an email notification that your Offer of Financial Assistance is ready to be viewed on your Banner Web account and you will not receive a paper copy of your Offer of Financial Assistance. You will no longer need to sign and return your Offer of Financial Assistance. You will need to sign and return a Master Conditions of Financial Aid form one time while receiving aid at SPU. Please read it carefully. You will need to complete a Master Lender Selection form once while receiving federal Stafford loans at SPU. If you decide to change your Stafford loan lender after the Master Lender Selection form is completed or would like to make any changes to your Offer of Financial Assistance, you will need to contact Student Financial Services by email, phone or in writing. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please contact Student Financial Services at (206)281-2061 or send an email to sfs-info@spu.edu
