Award Notifications

The Office of Financial Aid begins sending financial aid notifications to new students in mid-March and to returning students in early June. Students are instructed to return required forms and documents if applicable. Financial aid will not be disbursed to a student's account until the requested forms are submitted to the Office of Financial Aid.

Completing the Verification Process

If a student is selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education or by review of the financial aid staff, parent and student tax information for the previous year must be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid. In addition, the Knox Financial Aid Application must be completed, signed, and returned to the Office of Financial Aid.

As a general rule, the financial aid office does not send financial aid packages to students until verification is complete. If verification is required after an initial package has been sent, students will be notified of any adjustments once verification is complete. No federal or state financial aid will be disbursed to a student account until the verification process is complete. If the process is not complete as of the last day of the student's enrollment at Knox for the current school year, the student will not receive any federal or state aid.

Renewal of Financial Aid

Need-based financial aid is not automatically renewed from year to year. Each year the student must complete the required forms to apply for financial aid. Notification of the application process and application materials are sent in January to currently enrolled financial aid recipients who are expected to return. Requests for other documentation may be sent to students and/or parents.
