If you are a female, or do not fit into the requirements for having to register, please submit written notice to our office that you were not required to register indicating the reason.
Students who enter a program on or after July 1, 2012 must have successfully obtained a high school diploma or equivalent prior to being awarded any Federal or state student aid.
Students will have the opportunity to 'self-certify" on the FAFSA directly stating that they received a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent. By indicating on the FAFSA that the student has received one of the three options listed above, they are not required to send in proof of that completion unless there is reason to believe that the information is invalid.
Students that have answered the question incorrectly can go back and update their FAFSA. If high school was completed outside the U.S. please select "High School Diploma".
If a student does not indicate on the FAFSA that they have their high school diploma or equivalent, the student is required to provide documentation of their high school equivalency status. Federal and state aid will not be awarded until this requirement has been satisfied.
