Beginning October 15, 2021, the Office of Student Financial Aid introduced a new process by which you submit your verification documents electronically. On this date, verification related paper forms were removed from our website. For instructions and screenshots of how to set up your Patriot Forms account, click the button below.
Special Note for Students New to Mason:
New students attending Mason for the first time need to activate a Patriot Pass account which allows access to important financial aid information via Patriot Web (a self-service website for students). To do so, please navigate to the Password Management page HERE.
Note: You will need your Mason G number and a Claim Code, which is your date of birth formatted as MMDDYY.
Once you have completed these steps and received your Mason Username (also called NetID) and you have set up your password, you will have access to Patriot Web where you can view your financial aid offer.
For All Students Selected for Verification:
To submit your verification documents to the Office of Financial Aid, all students (new and returning) will need to create a Patriot Forms Account.
Create Your Patriot Forms Account
This is a one-time account creation. You’ll be asked for some basic information when creating your account. This information is used to validate your identity so that electronic signature can be used on future forms.
Four Easy Steps:
- Go to Patriot Forms
- Click ‘Create Account’ link
- Enter/confirm your student information
- Click ‘Create Account’ button
It’s important that you use the full name and correct social security number that you entered on your FAFSA so that your verification account can link up with your FAFSA. Don’t use any nicknames or shortened versions of your name. Use what you entered on your FAFSA!
Once your account is created, any required tasks you need to complete will become available.
In Patriot Forms, you will be able to:
- Complete financial aid forms on your phone, tablet, or computer.
- Securely upload documents from any device.
- E-sign documents—both you and your parents!
- Manage your financial aid tasks online.
- Receive automated reminders about outstanding tasks and next steps.
