"Our Financial Aid Office has begun packaging 2024-2025 financial aid for student(s) enrolled in the Fall 2024 semester, whose files have been processed with no outstanding financial aid requirements and/or corrections needed to their file. To check on your status, login to your "MyCoast" portal and click on the "Financial Aid Status" section for possible awards you may have received. If there are no awards indicated, check for any outstanding required documents needed to be submitted. Award offers/notifications will be sent out in the coming weeks to all students. Unfortunately, due to the continued hiccups/adjustments at the Department of Education, we are not processing any Unusual or Special Circumstance Appeals until a later unspecified date (possibly closer to the start of the 24/25 Academic Year).  As the Fall 2024 semester approaches, please ensure you have set up and selected a disbursement preference through BankMobile to receive your financial aid refunds in a timely manner."
