    Be advised supporting documentation must accompany your FACTS application.  Your application will remain at a "submitted" status until these documents are received.  Supporting documents may include a federal 1040 income tax return or W-2 wage and tax statement.  Once all supporting information is received, your application status will be changed to "verified".  Please note only verified applications will be considered for an award.

    If you receive a tuition assistance award, the amount of the award is deducted from the total tuition rate as reflected on the tuition agreement.
