Reminders and News

Check your UB email often! Our office sends several emails to the general student population throughout the course of the year to make sure you have all the information you need.

Complete Your HUB To Do List Requirements! Check your HUB To Do List and complete any outstanding requirements. Your financial aid may be held until you have completed your checklist requirements.

New FSA ID will replace the Federal Student Aid PIN beginning May 10, 2015. During the FSA ID registration process, individuals who already have a PIN will have the option to link that PIN to their new FSA ID. By linking to a PIN, the user will be able to immediately use the FSA ID. Individuals who do not link to a PIN will have limited use of the FSA ID until his or her personal identifiers can be confirmed by the Social Security Administration (1-3 days).

The FSA ID is required to login to FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access,, and the TEACH Grant websites.

Information is subject to change without notice due to changes in federal, state and/or institutional rules and regulations. Students must complete a FAFSA every year. Students must be making satisfactory academic progress to continue to receive financial aid.
