Unsatisfied Requirements

Unsatisfied requirements can cause financial aid delays. They can prevent students from receiving aid offers or aid from disbursing. Students are notified via their MIX email on their WVU Portal.


Where Can I Find My Unsatisfied Requirements?

Students can view everything online.

  1. Go to your WVU Portal
  2. Enter your login information ( WVU Login username and password)
  3. Click on "Financial Aid Information"
  4. Click on "Eligibility"
  5. Select the appropriate aid year
  6. Review unsatisfied requirements under the "Student Requirements" tab

If one of your requirements is "Unsatisfied (Outstanding) Task(s)" you will be directed to wvu.verifymyfafsa.com to complete these tasks. You will log in with your WVU Login username and password. If this is your first time, you must verify your first/last name, date of birth, and social security number. More information is available on the Verify My FAFSA Account page.

** Please note if you have a scholarship or private loan check made out to both you and the University, you must endorse the check before we can apply it to your student account. You will be contacted via your MIX email should we receive a check that needs endorsed by you.

What Prevents Financial Aid from Disbursing as Payment to My Student Account?

Here are the top questions to ask to determine why aid did not disburse:

  1. Did you complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for this academic year?
    1. The FAFSA needs completed at fafsa.ed.gov every academic year the student is interested in financial aid.
    2. Make sure the FAFSA was for the correct academic year. For example, Fall 2019, Spring 2020, and Summer 2020 are under the 2019-2020 FAFSA.
    3. See the Applying for Aid page for more information.
  2. Did you accept your financial aid?
  3. Are you a first-time federal loan borrower?
    1. There are additional requirements that must be completed depending on the type of loan. See "Are There Additional Requirements for My Federal Loan?".
  4. Are you interested in a PLUS Loan or a private loan?
    1. PLUS and private loans are credit-based loans which require an application. See our Loans page for more information on application or additional requirements for disbursement based on loan type.
  5. Do you have any unsatisfied requirements?
  6. Do you have a check for a private loan or private scholarship that needs endorsed? If you have a scholarship or private loan check made out to both you and the University, you must endorse the check before we can apply it as payment. You will be contacted via your MIX email should we receive a check that needs endorsed by you.
  7. Are you maintaining satisfactory academic progress standards for financial aid eligibility?
  8. Are you meeting enrollment requirements?
    1. Different types of aid can have different enrollment requirements. Most loans require at least half-time enrollment. Most grants and scholarships require full-time enrollment. See Enrollment Standards for Financial Aid for more information.
  9. Are you repeating any courses this semester?
    1. Previously passed courses can only be repeated one time and still be eligible for aid and count toward your enrollment requirements for aid. Students repeating previously passed courses more than once may experience reduced eligibility for aid. See Enrollment Standards for Financial Aid for more information.
