Fall 2021- Spring 2022 To Do List Items and Award Offer Timeline

If you submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA Dream Application (CDA) for the 2021-2022 academic year, you should receive an acknowledgement or To Do List email from our office beginning December 2, 2020.

You may have To Do List items to complete before your 2021-2022 financial aid file can be reviewed. If so, you will receive an email notification from our office. Please submit items as soon as possible. We expect to begin reviewing complete files in January in preparation for 2021-2022 Award Offers.

Newly admitted students with complete To Do Lists and complete file reviews can expect 2021-2022 award offers to be viewable in MySSU in February 2021. If you receive a preliminary award letter, make sure all of your To Do List items are complete in order to receive an official award letter. Students who still have Preliminary awards as of June 1 will be canceled. After June 1, financial aid will be awarded only once all To Do List items have been submitted and reviewed.

For continuing students, Award Offers will be viewable in MySSU in June 2021, after Spring 2021 grades are posted. Continuing students must have complete To Do Lists and complete file reviews in order to receive an award offer.
