  2. Check financial aid status and eligibility. It is important to note that academic probation or suspension is a separate process from financial aid probation or suspension. Students planning to receive federal financial aid must contact Rocket Solutions Central at 419-530-8700 or to verify their financial aid status and eligibility for the semester you are requesting to be reinstated.
