Main Screen
Once you are on the main screen, click Menu and you will then see other options to choose from. Some of the most important options are the Awards by Semester, Accept Awards, and My Documents.

Awards by Semester 
Allows you to see the breakdown of your awards per term.

Accept Awards
Allows you to see your awarded aid for the YEAR. The awarded amount that you currently see is the maximum, but you are able to lower the amount of some awards (mostly Direct loans). If you wish to change the amount, simply click in the box and change the number.

The next thing that you need to do is choose to either accept or decline the awards. You can click on the drop down menu and switch each award to either “decline” or accept”. If you wish to accept all awards, you can click the “Accept All” option on the bottom right of the screen. After you choose to either accept or decline the awards, you must click SUBMIT in order for the information to go through. If you have already submitted an acceptance or declined an award and need to make a change, you must contact the office of Student Financial Assistance in writing at SFA@sacredheart.edu, in order for us to make the appropriate changes.

My Documents:
This will show information about all of your required documents. You will see the status of your documents here. They can say “Received”, “Not Received”, “Incomplete” or Not Signed. You will also see the date of the most updated status of your documents. If one of your documents is not received, you may click on the document and the link will take you to required document.
