Needed Documents

Once you have been admitted and a few weeks after you have submitted your FAFSA to apply for financial aid, you may be requested to submit certain documents to our office. These documents might include a request to verify the financial information listed on your FAFSA, proof of your citizenship, documentation that your prior federal loans are not in default, confirmation of your selective service information, etc. It is very important that students submit the requested documents within 45 days of the initial request in order to ensure consideration for the maximum amount of financial aid possible. If any document is requested, it will show on your Banner Financial Aid Self-Service webpage when clicking on the "Eligibility" link and then on the Student Requirements tab. Impacted students will also receive an email informing them of any outstanding requirement.

Documents can be returned to the office in regular mail. However, we strongly encourage students to use UTHSC's secure email system called UT Vault. When using this email system, please ensure documents are emailed directly to your college's financial aid counselor.
