Important reminders when submitting forms

  • Make sure that you are completing the correct academic year documents; we cannot accept forms for different academic years, so if we are requesting a 2020-2021 form, make sure that you are submitting the 2020-2021 version of that form.
  • Make sure documents are completed entirely; if something does not apply do not leave it blank - enter N/A or "0".
  • Complete all documents in black or dark blue ink; any other color will not show up when we scan the document into our imaging system, which can delay the review of your file.
  • Make sure all necessary signatures are there; missing signatures can delay the review of your file.
  • If the form is requesting additional attachments, make sure to include them; if additional documents should be attached to the form and they are not, it can delay your file from being processed.
  • Make sure your name and ID number are on the top of every page; every form requests this information but please make sure to include your name and ID number on the top of every document, including income and tax documents.
