Things 2 Know @ FAO

Fall 2017 Registration Payment Deadline is July 1, 2017

Registration charges for new transfer or continuing students who registered for Fall 2017 classes in April and May are due to be paid on July 1, 2017. You must have an Award Offer in place before July 1 in an amount sufficient to pay your registration charges or you will be disenrolled from classes.

New transfer students should already have your award available to view in MySSU, unless you have initiated To Do List items. Detailed instructions for viewing your To Do List are available on the Using MySSU page of the Help Book. Contact our office at finaid@sonoma.edu or (707) 664-2389 if you have any questions about your To Do List or your Award Offer.

For continuing students, we plan to have Award Offers available to view in MySSU by Friday, June 16, unless you have initiated To Do List items. Detailed instructions for viewing your To Do List are available on the Using MySSU page of the Help Book. Also, failure to meet our Standards of Academic Progress may delay your Award Offer or cause it to be cancelled before July 1. Be sure to keep up with your SSU Email during the summer. Contact our office at finaid@sonoma.edu or (707) 664-2389 if you have any questions about your To Do List.

Avoid FAFSA Scams

Filing the FAFSA is FREE. There are companies that may solicit payment from you to file the FAFSA on your behalf, but in most cases this is a waste of your money. If you are asked to give a credit card number or make any kind of payment to complete or file the FAFSA, beware. More information on filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid can be found in our How to Apply section of our website.
