After CSU Channel Islands receives your FAFSA information from the processor, you will be sent a notice via email or letter from the Financial Aid Office. If additional documentation is needed to complete your file, a list of the required documents will be provided.

The most common reason additional documents are needed is to satisfy verification requirements.

Avoid processing delays by completing all documentation as requested.
  • Please be sure to include signatures on all documents, including tax forms.
  • All documents must be submitted directly to the Financial Aid Office.
  • Incomplete, inaccurate, or illegible responses will cause a delay in the verification process.

If you were not selected for verification and no additional documentation is requested, your file is complete and is ready to be awarded during our next awarding cycle.
