Process for Certifying Applications
Before submitting their application, applicants are advised to contact both financial aid and study abroad offices at their institution to confirm they are selecting the correct certifying advisors.
The selected study abroad and financial aid certifying advisors automatically receive an email once a student submits their application. Check your inbox filter for any emails from the Gilman system.
We encourage all certifying advisors to submit certifications as soon as possible before the advisor deadline. This ensures quick processing of your student’s application and allows time for any questions or issues to be addressed.
