Confirming Fall Graduation

If you are graduating in the fall semester, you will need to submit confirmation to the SFS office to update your aid to reflect your fall-only enrollment. It is important to know that federal, state and institutional policies do not permit us to assign your full year’s aid to one semester.

Below are steps you can take to update your account to reflect your fall graduation.

  1. Complete and submit the Confirmation of Fall Graduation via the SFS channel on the Costs and Aid tab of TUportal. It is very important to know that this process may alter your federal loan amounts for the semester. If you are registered less than 12 credits, then your federal loans may be decreased. If you are registered more than 12 credits, your federal loans may be increased. Additionally, due to changes under the FAFSA Simplification Act, your eligibility for need-based aid may be reduced.
  2. If you are registered less than half time and receive an admissions-based merit scholarship, you will need to submit an appeal to request your scholarship to be applied to your final semester. Please note that appeals are not guaranteed to be approved.
  3. Be aware of billing deadlines. Your balance must be paid in full for you to receive your diploma and/or access your final transcript(s).
