Checking Your Status
Regularly checking your financial aid status is a critical step in ensuring you receive your financial aid in a timely manner. You can manage all aspects of your financial aid and stay on top of your status online.
- 7-10 days for DU to receive your FAFSA
- 1-3 days for your student record to reflect submitted documents
- 2-3 days for your student record to reflect completed loan requirements
- 3-5 days for a Graduate PLUS or private loan to appear on your student record after you apply
Checking the Status of Your Application
To check the status of your application, review the "Financial Aid Requirements" box on the Student tab of PioneerWeb. If you see the FAFSA listed there — with a green check mark in the "Status" column —we've received it.
Checking the Status of Your Award
Once you have accepted your financial aid award, there may be additional requirements you need to complete before your aid can pay into your student account (particularly if you are borrowing student loans). To see if there are unsatisfied requirements, review the "Financial Aid Requirements" box in PioneerWeb. If there are any red flags listed in the "Status" column, further action is required.
