Respond promptly to these requests (and any follow-up requests) to assure timely processing of your application. The first letter is the ONLY paper letter you will receive from Financial Aid, please check your e-mail often to see if there is any other correspondence from the Financial Aid Office. The Financial Aid Office uses the PRIMARY e-mail address registered with Admissions.
