By: The Feds

 

DON’T FORGET THESE IMPORTANT FINANCIAL AID
DEADLINES!

 

FAFSA DEADLINE                                                                                              MARCH 1st, 2012

DEADLINE FOR ALL OTHER DOCUMENTS                                                    MAY 1st, 2012

What time is it? It’s time to file your 2012-2013 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, otherwise known as the
FAFSA! In order to receive any form of need-based financial aid from the University of New Haven, students must complete a FAFSA. You must complete the application electronically by visiting the Department of Education’s website,www.FAFSA.gov. In order to do this, you will need the school’s code, which is 001397, as well as you and your parent’s Federal PIN numbers. The deadline for completion of the FAFSA is March 1st, 2012. If you are confused about how to file your FAFSA, or have any questions regarding the deadlines, please consult the Financial Aid Office as soon as possible. If you wait until after March 1st, 2012 to file you will be considered late, and you may receive less financial aid because of late penalties.

It is also important to make sure that you have completed all of the documentation necessary to receive financial aid from UNH. All of your documents must be submitted to the university by the deadline, May 1st, 2012. In order to see what documents are necessary to process your aid, go onto NetPartner on the UNH website. Using the Quick Links drop down bar near the search button, click on the link that says “Matrix: Students”. DO NOT LOG INTO MATRIX!!! On the left side of the page, below the Matrix login, there will be an icon or picture, as seen at the right. Click on this picture, and it will bring you to a website known as NetPartner. The direct website is www.netpartner.newhaven.edu/NetPartnerStudent. This website is NOT Matrix, so do not try to use your Matrix log in. The log in process is easy. Your “Student ID” is the nine digit number on the front of your Student ID card.

  • If you have already logged in to NetPartner, and you remember your PIN, enter the information and hit submit.
  • If you have already logged in but have forgotten your PIN, click “Forgot PIN” and follow the instructions.
  • If you have never created an account, click “First Time User” and follow the instructions”

Once you have logged into your financial aid online access, you will be able to view all of the information concerning your financial aid. Familiarize yourself with the website, and check under the tab labeled “Documents” to see if you are missing any documents. If something says “not received” or “incomplete” next to it, then it means that you need to get that documentation to the Financial Aid
Office as soon as possible. Some forms are available for you to print directly from the “Forms” tab. It is important to constantly check up on your financial aid account. You can also give your login information to your parents so they can check the status of your financial aid for you!
