Your guide through the financial aid process.
♦ Federal Verification
The federal government randomly selects FAFSA applicants for verification. Students may also be flagged
for verification if conflicting information is reported on the FAFSA.
♦ Standards of Academic Progress (SAP)
Federal regulations require that Youngstown State University review the academic progress of students annually.
If a student is non-compliant, they can appeal the denial of financial aid evaluated by an appeal committee.
♦ Housing Grant Application
Students who are planning to live in University Housing or Courtyard Apartments; priority deadline is March 15.
♦ Payment Options
Cash, check, credit and debit card, etc.
♦ Past Due Balance
Current and prior unpaid balances.
♦ Perkins Loan
A low-interest educational loan available to students with financial need determined by the result of the FAFSA.
♦ Tuition Refund Policy
Students withdrawing from a course may be eligible for 100% refund of charges through the 14th day of the semester.
Withdrawal processed after the 14th day will not be entitled to any reduction of charges.
♦ Tax Information
Determine potential education tax credit through 1098-T form.
♦ Holds on Student Account
Review what hold can prevent (registration, transcript, etc.), and contact information for assistance in resolving hold.
♦ Share Access to View YSU Bill
Students can give third parties, such as parents or guardians, access to their account to make payments.
Youngstown State University cannot share students records with third parties unless the student
provides written consent. For more information on sharing student records, such as financial aid or
grades, please visit our FERPA page.
