Accept or Decline the Federal Direct Loans

University College has a “passive acceptance” policy in regards to the Federal Direct Loans.  That means we assume you are accepting the full amount of your award unless you tell us otherwise.  If you would like to decline all or a portion of your award, please complete and submit to financialaid@uc.apu.edu the Loan Reduction Form.  Federal Direct Loans are funds that must be repaid. We encourage all students to borrow wisely and only borrow what is needed to cover their tuition charges.

REMEMBER TO BORROW WISELY.  To monitor your Federal Direct Loan borrowing history, please visit http://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds/nslds_SA/

2017-2018 Verification Required – Campus Logic

The Department of Education has identified your application for a selection process called verification. In order for the financial aid office to determine your eligibility for federal student aid for the current award year, you must complete the verification process. The purpose of the verification process is to validate the accuracy of your FAFSA data. University College is partnering with Campus Logic to help you complete the verification process. 

Some helpful tips from Campus Logic:

  • Campus Logic will send an email to the email address you listed on your FAFSA. The email will tell you what information you need to submit to complete the verification process.
  • Watch for emails from Campus Logic with instructions on what you need to do to complete the process. You are only asked for information we need from you. Please follow the instructions carefully.
  • You will complete most or all of your verification at https://ucapu.verifymyfafsa.com/account/login. You will also upload any required documents online.
  • PLEASE NOTE:  Currently the data retrieval tool (IRS-DRT) to transfer your tax information from the IRS to the FAFSA is not available. If chosen for verification, please request a Tax Return Transcript at irs.gov/Individuals/Order-a-Transcript.
  • You can track your verification status on https://ucapu.verifymyfafsa.com/account/login.
  • Sign up to receive text alerts messages from Campus Logic to help track your verification status. Please remember that message and data rates may apply.

Finally, DON’T DELAY! The faster you respond to requests from Campus Logic, the faster you complete verification and the faster your financial aid can be awarded.
