Submitting Documents

SAIC's Student Financial Services office has several convenient ways to submit documents requested for financial aid and student account processing. Please do not submit sensitive documents—those with social security numbers, birthdates, or other personally identifiable information—by email.

Prior to submission, please place your name and Student ID# on all documents. Be sure to sign and date all necessary documentation and forms. Failure to properly complete forms will result in delayed processing. After submission, please allow up to 72 hours for your documentation to be received and processed.

Scan and Upload Imaged Documents Safely and Securely

ShareFile is SAIC’s electronic document submission option to safely and securely submit documents to the Student Financial Services office. To use ShareFile, documents and forms need to be printed, signed, and scanned into an electronic format in preparation for submission.

ShareFile can be accessed at After submitting your document(s), you will be returned to this page.

Note: Please do not use ShareFile to submit documentation for other SAIC offices. If you have documents with sensitive information, please do not email or mail them. If you are in Chicago, you may choose to personally come into our office at 36 South Wabash, 12 Floor to drop off, or have us scan documents with personal information.
