After receiving your financial aid Award Notice what should you do? The Office of Financial Aid will assume that you have accepted all of the aid awarded and it will be applied automatically to your university charges. However, if you want to accept or decline specific awards or reduce the amount of your awards, there are instructions on this page to help you do that.
Accepting financial aid entails certain rights and responsibilities. When you are awarded financial aid, it is assumed that you will read and understand the terms and conditions of your aid and your rights and responsibilities, as specified here and in Required Reading, and that you agree to the certifications listed on page 2 of your award notice. We strongly encourage you to learn as much as you can about the aid you are accepting and to know in advance what is expected of you in terms of your enrollment and academic progress. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
- NEW & PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS: You may not decline or reduce awards until you have received an Official Award Notice, which typically occurs after you submit additional documents to our office and your application is reviewed. Then you may use Wolverine Access to decline or reduce your awards. After logging in to Wolverine Access, select Students > New & Prospective Student Business > Accept/Decline Financial Aid.
- CURRENT STUDENTS: Select Student Center > Financial Aid > Aid Year > Awards > Accept/Decline.
