All SFS forms are available in PDF format. You may download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website (version 5.0 or higher is recommended). You will be able to type the information required in each form while you are online, however please note that all forms must be signed by hand.  Typing your name or using an electronic image of your signature will result in us rejecting the form and requiring resubmission on your part.


Common Forms

Authorization to Release Financial Information -- (Completed by the Student) Allow University personnel to discuss student financial records with parties other than the student (e.g. parents). Without this form on file, our staff will be unable to offer important assistance to parents and others who have questions about the student account. We recommend all students complete this form.

Parent and Student Signature Page for 2015-2016 -- (Completed by the Student and the Parent of a Dependent Student who has completed the University Financial Aid Application or the CSS/PROFILE online.)

Request for Student’s Taxpayer Identification Number Form (Substitute IRS W-9S Form) -- (Completed by the Student) For students who have been notified that they do not have a valid Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number on file in the SIS. International students who are not required to file U.S. tax returns should complete Part II (check the first box).

Submitting Forms & Documents

Completed forms may be submitted in several ways. Please choose only one method of transmission and ensure the documents are labelled with the student's full legal name and student ID number. Within about 3 days of when we receive a document, we will remove the item from the student's SIS To Do List. This will be your confirmation that the document has been received.  Due to high volumes during our busiest time of the year in late February and early March, it may take much longer for the To Do List item to be removed.

SIS Upload

If the document was requested through your SIS To Do List and is eligible for electronic upload, it is most efficient for you to submit your documents online through your secure SIS account. Click on the “more” link in your SIS To Do List, then choose an individual item. On the details page, if there is an “Upload Document” button, you may submit your document online. Documents must be in PDF format and smaller than 20GB. If the document is not eligible for electronic upload, please choose another method of submission.
