Secure Document Upload

Welcome to LMU Financial Aid's secure document upload tool. Current and prospective students may use this to upload required documentation.

LMU Financial Aid collects data electronically and stores it in a secure data management system. This will allow you to upload documents you are required to submit to our office in a secure fashion, particularly documents such as tax transcripts that contain personally identifiable information (PII). The privacy and safety of your data is extremely important to us.

You may not email documents to our office that contain Social Security Numbers or other personally identifiable information.  If you were selected for Citizenship Verification, you must either submit a copy of your qualifying identification to our office in person, or submit it along with a notary's certification and a "Citizenship Affidavit" form via our secure portal below or via fax at 310-338-2793.

All documents must include:

  • The student's name and university ID number on each page.
  • A cover sheet including the student's name, university ID number and the name of the form submitted.
  • Complete information (please review the form's instructions carefully to ensure that all fields are completed).


  1. You may only submit one document at a time. You cannot upload a folder. The document size limit is 4 MB. File names cannot contain special characters.
  2. Make sure to follow the "All documents must include" instructions above.
  3. Either drag and drop the file into the Box below or click "Browse" to choose the name of the file you wish to upload.
  4. IMPORTANT: Only enter the student's name, LMU ID number, and a brief description for the document(s) being submitted in the "File Description" field in the box below (limit 100 characters). Also, do not submit any "Protected" files using our Secure Document Upload Portal. We are unable to process protected files. You may fax any documents to our office at 310.338.2793.
  5. After submitting a file, you should see a screen that says, "Success! Your file has been uploaded." This confirms that we have received your document. There is no need to contact our office to confirm receipt.

Please allow a minimum of two business days for confirmation in PROWL (for current LMU students) or the Admission portal (for prospective students or recently admitted students) that we have received your form or document submission.
