During the financial aid process, there are many times when additional information is required to complete an application for Federal Student Aid.
When PSU receives your FAFSA information, we will review it and contact you if any additional information is need. The U.S. Department of Education selects approximately 1/3 of all financial aid applicants for verification. This does not necessarily mean there is a problem with your application, simply that we need to collect additional information.
Notifications of required documents are sent via email. Only the forms being requested by Student Financial Services will need to be completed. Requested documents may be emailed, faxed, mailed, or dropped off in person during open office hours.
Do not send any unsolicited documentation as this may require additional clarification from PSU and slow the financial aid process and keep our office from identifying programs for which the student may be eligible.
