Students Protecting Themselves from Financial Aid Scams: This is a reminder that if you receive correspondence from an outside agency asking for significant personal information and a processing fee for financial aid, it is most likely a scam. We highly encourage you not to respond to this type of request, as you could lose the fee and jeopardize your personally identifiable information.
