Financial Aid eForms

Once you have completed the online financial aid application, the CR financial aid office may request additional documents before your eligibility can be determined for some types of aid. Financial aid documents must be submitted electronically through eForms. 

Required Forms

Log in to WebAdvisor and check ‘myFinAid’ to see if there are any required documents missing. If applicable, there will be a link to each required eForm  (eForms login page tip: use your student email login credentials).  Also watch for emails in your student email account regarding any new requirements or status updates.

Additional Documents – to submit follow up documentation or other miscellaneous documents that you wish to submit.

Direct Loan Application (Summer 2024) – to request a student loan (additional details and steps to apply for a loan)

Direct Loan Change Request – to request a change or cancel an existing loan

Form Deadlines

Most forms are due prior to your last date of attendance for the academic year.  However, the following term-specific forms are due before your last date of attendance for the term: SAP Appeals and term-specific Loan Requests.
