Secure Document Upload
Student Financial Assistance may require various types of documents to complete verification. Most documents and forms can be submitted through the Secure Document Upload on Joe'SS to safeguard and protect your information. Students can access the Secure Document Upload through their Student Center in Joe'SS. Parents who have been granted Additional Authorized Access (AAA) will also have access to submit documents. To grant the AAA access, please refer to the instructions provided by the Registrar's Office.
Here are some examples of the different types of documents that might be requested. EXAMPLES OF DOCUMENTS
