The USA Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping you and your student pursue their educational goals. We understand that navigating the federal financial aid process can be challenging, but you don't have to do it alone. Your Jaguar family is ready to offer you support and guidance every step of the way. 

Tips for Success

  1. Do you need access to your student's financial aid records? Be sure they've completed the FERPA Release Form.
  2. Does your student need to submit verification documents? Access the USA Financial Aid Verification Portal.
  3. Have your financial circumstances changed? Your student may be eligible to submit a Family Contribution Appeal.
