Upcoming TGS Financial Aid Processing Deadlines and Key Dates for Spring 2015

Modified: February 6, 2015

March 2, 2015
Deadline for dual career spreadsheet for spring quarter 2014/15
With the implementation of the Smart Pages, you are unable to complete data entry for students who are in dual careers.  Please submit a spreadsheet with required information, so that TGS financial aid staff can complete this data entry.  The spreadsheet template is attached.  

Deadline for spring quarter 2014/15 funding entry
Stipend Awards with Item Types 61 (includes only words in the description)
When entering stipend awards with item types in which the description is words, TGS processes the changes in FASIS.  Therefore, if you make any additions, reductions and/or cancellations to such awards, notify TGS Financial Aid, indicating the student’s name and ID in the subject line.

Stipend Awards with Item Types 62 (includes chart string in description)
Please complete paper position/appointment forms for any additions, reductions and/or cancellations of stipend awards with item types in which the description includes the chart string.  Paper forms must be submitted by Payroll’s stated deadline of March 16 in order for the student to be paid on March 31st.  The interface on September 10, 2014 only transmitted stipend awards that began on September 1st and were continuous on the same chart string at the same pay rate.
