Please give us time to process your 2017-18 financial aid documents

Volumes in our office are high this time of the year, whether students are contacting us by email, phone, fax or in person. If you have submitted documents, it may take 5-8 business days for receipt of these documents to show up on Wolverine Access in the student’s secure portal. We appreciate your patience as we work to award aid for 2017-18.

Completing your 2017-18 FAFSA without IRS Data Retrieval

The IRS has taken its Data Retrieval Tool offline and the U-M Office of Financial Aid is recommending that students complete their 2017-18 FAFSAs without delay, manually entering tax return information into the online application. We must receive your FAFSA by April 30 to consider you for all aid. See more information about applying for aid without the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in this post.
