Step 5: Complete Your To-Do List Items and Read Your Messages
A) Complete Your To-Do List Items
Your to-do items will appear on My Financial Center. These must be completed before processing can continue.
You may be selected and required to verify the information on your financial aid application. See Financial Aid Verification for more information.
Sign Master Promissory Note
You will need to complete a Master Promissory Note the first time you get a Stafford Loan (or other federal loan) at BYU. You will be prompted to do this at the appropriate time in your "to-do" list on My Financial Center.
B) Check Message Center Regularly
Read your messages on Message Center and check back frequently. This is how we communicate with you.
Other Important To-Do Topics
Submit a FERPA Release (Optional)
If you want us to be able to discuss your financial aid or scholarships with anyone other than yourself, please submit a FERPA Release Form. Without this form we will be unable to discuss your personal financial information with anyone but you.
Register for Classes
Register for classes. If you do not have classes, you are not technically considered a student. If you are not a student, we cannot give you student aid.
