Pending Financial Aid Help

Pending aid on a student’s account refers to the amount of Financial Aid that is anticipated to be awarded on behalf of the student. There are many reasons why a Financial Aid award may be in pending status (ex. funds have not yet been received by the school).  To find out why the aid has not been applied, first check your VT email for any requested documents.  Failure to complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and the entrance counseling on or provide requested documentation can delay your aid.
