The Office of Financial Assistance sends Missing Information Letter emails (MILs) to students as part of the verification and follow up process. The MIL email serves as a notice to students that their financial aid application is incomplete and advises them what they need to supply to our office. The success of the process depends upon Drew’s Office of Financial Assistance requesting all required information with the MIL and regularly monitoring responses, and the student returning this information in a timely manner.

The student’s financial assistance will be cancelled if he/she does not comply with the request for additional information. The appropriate counselor within the Office of Financial Assistance must review the file, cancel all financial aid, and send the cancellation email to the student unless verification can be completed.

MIL emails are generated on a regular basis because completion of student files for awarding of aid is critical.
