As a financial aid student, you must accept the following responsibilities to ensure that your aid is processed correctly and that you know what consequences may arise if you fail to complete your course work or withdraw from school or classes:
- You must complete your admissions application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit them on time to the correct addresses.
- The FAFSA must be completed online and be received no later than March 1 (our priority deadline date) if you wish to receive your maximum eligible aid package.
- We will continue to process aid applications after March 1, however, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG-state grant) and Federal Work Study funds may be exhausted by the time late applications are received.
- New students should complete and submit admissions applications in the November/December time frame so that when their information is received, their aid package (award letter) can be processed in a timely manner.
- You will not receive a financial aid award letter until you are admitted to the College.
- You must be making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward a degree objective in order to be eligible to receive financial aid at Eastern.
- You must submit accurate and complete information in your FAFSA application and in any other documents or forms requested. Reporting inaccurate and/or incomplete information will delay the processing of your aid or result in a penalty assessed by the federal government.
- You must complete and return all other documents, verification forms, and reports requested by the financial aid office with corrections and/or new information.
- You are responsible for reading and understanding all applications, reports, letters and forms that you are asked to sign, and keeping copies of them.
- You must accept responsibility for all agreements that you sign with the federal government and the College.
- You must perform the work that is agreed upon in the contract if you sign a work study contract.
- You must be aware of the College's withdrawal and refund policies and procedures and know the consequences of withdrawing from classes or school. This information is extremely important as, under certain circumstances, you could find yourself owing the College for an unpaid balance or having to repay federal funds refunded to you.
