• Read your AJU e-mail – critical financial aid and academic statuses are communicated via e-mail only
  • For loans to process, you must accept your loans. Loans will not be processed or added to your account if you do not accept them and complete the required steps
  • Your lender will contact you directly if additional information is needed
  • PLUS and Alternative Loans are credit based and will require a credit worthy cosigner if your credit is denied
  • Loan processing may take up to two weeks or longer if your lender or the Department of Education do not have a completed promissory note on file
  • Be prepared to pay your first month’s rent and first month’s school expenses out-of-pocket
  • All students should come prepared with cash or a credit card to purchase their books even if they have financial assistance to cover the cost. Refund checks are not typically available until after the add/drop period for those students that qualify
  • Contact Financial Aid Office if you have questions (310) 440-1595 or financialaidataju.edu
