Understanding the To Do List

The To Do List may contain items that you need to complete for Student Financial Assistance (SFA) or other offices within the UCF community. Students receiving financial aid should regularly check their To Do List. Failure to submit the items requested will delay your financial aid from being processed. As a result,  your financial aid may not be posted on your account before the fee payment deadline.

Processing Time: Please allow 10 – 14 business days for submitted items to be reviewed, approved and removed from your To Do List OR for the item status to change.

NOTE:  If you submitted a document that was requested on your To Do List and that particular item is removed from your To Do List, it means that the requested item has been received and it will be processed.  If an item has been cleared and then reappears on your To Do List, please resubmit the item with corrections and/or other requested information.

If you have submitted a document and more than 15 business days have passed,
please click the "details" link located on your To Do List then select the item name to view the document's status and proceed accordingly (be sure to access the To Do List located in your Student Center). Click here to view example of the "To Do List"
