INFORMATION RELEASE WAIVER
Permission must be granted by the student in order for the Office of Student Financial Services to discuss your financial aid eligibility or award status with any third party, including parents or guardians.
A personal identification number (PIN) associated with each person the student authorizes to access the Student Financial Services information will be randomly generated and displayed to the student after submitting the waiver. It is the student's responsibility to provide that number to the person to whom the student has granted access as that individual must have the correct PIN number in order to verify their identity prior to any release of information.
All authorizations will expire June 1st of every year or upon graduation. Students must re-authorize each person every year after that date. Subsequently, a new PIN will be generated for any person to whom the student has granted access.
