5. A new tab or window will open with Financial Aid Self-Service. Depending on how far along you are with the financial aid application process, the exact appearance of this screen will vary. The screenshot below shows the Financial Aid Self-Service homepage for a student whose financial aid has been awarded, so there is a link to read the award letter.

6. At the top of any Financial Aid Self-Service screen, there is a red, arrow-shaped "Financial Aid" button. If you hover over this button, a navigational drop-down menu will appear with options that will take to to the different areas of Self-Service.

7. Many students need to submit additional documentation before they can have their award processed. If the Financial Aid Office needs additional documents from you, the Financial Aid Self-Service homepage will have a message that says, "You have missing documents!" You can click on the "Complete required documents" link to view a checklist of documents that are needed.
