Guidelines for Submitting Documents to the Mississippi State University Financial Aid Office.

These guidelines are provided to ensure that documents are processed properly. Prior to uploading to Dawg-Documents, mailing or hand-delivering documents, follow these steps:

  • Verify all documents are clear, legible and complete.
  • Use blue or black ink (never pencil) on all correspondence.
  • Verify that each separate document submitted contains the student’s name, NetID and MSU 9-Digit ID number.
  • Verify that IRS tax returns are signed by at least one of the tax filers.
  • Check that documents that require a signature have HANDWRITTEN signatures; no typed or electronic signatures are acceptable.
  • Note that Financial Aid maintains all submitted complete documentation and generally does not return incomplete documents to the student or parent.
  • When using the Financial Aid Dawg-Documents Secure upload system, please allow time for the document file to attach. Large files can take several minutes to upload depending on the internet speed, please be patient.
