Per Federal regulations, the final deadline to process corrections for the 2020-2021 aid year is September 19, 2021. To allow time for accurate processing, the deadline to submit 2020-2021 verification documents for the term you are enrolled at TAMUK:

You must submit any required verification documents to our office before the official dates of the semester in which you are enrolled at least half time. Submission of documents after the deadline does not guarantee disbursement of funds.

Student Responsibility:

When a student is selected for verification, it is the responsibility of the student to submit all required documents as soon as possible in order to receive any aid that the student may be eligible for. All required documentation will be requested via email and listed in the requirements section in your JNet student portal. Students should provide all documentation upon request to avoid delays in processing and disbursement of all funds.
