Complete your Financial Aid File
- Complete a FAFSA for the academic year you are attending.
- Check your file on Loboweb following these instructions.
- Submit missing documents or forms one of two ways:
- Allow 3-5 business days for processing forms before checking for any awards. Any student with an incomplete file will not be awarded.
- Make sure to accept any scholarship awards by the deadline (if awarded a scholarship an email will be sent with instructions on accepting)
*Note: The Lottery Scholarship requires no acceptance
What dates do I need to keep in mind?
Jan 5 - UNM’s FAFSA priority date: submit your FAFSA by this date to be considered for grant funding that is limited
Feb 1 – Additional Documentation Date: submit any missing documentation by this date to be considered for grant funding that is limited
*Note: If you miss this date you should still submit any missing documentation, as all students are considered for the Pell Grant (if eligible) and Federal Student Loans Programs (if eligible) regardless of when a file is completed.
What is FAFSA Verification?
- FAFSA Verification is the process by which UNM confirms the data reported on your FAFSA is accurate. UNM has the authority to contact you for documentation that supports income and other information that you reported. We are required by federal regulation to verify a certain number of students' FAFSA information.
- You will receive an email communication to your UNM email account (and for incoming freshmen you will also receive an email at the email address you provided to UNM upon submitting your Admission Application) if you were selected for Verification and required to submit additional documentation.
