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 up to 5 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 and for the 2017 Spring/Summer terms.
The U-M Student Employment Office recently updated its website: https://studentemployment.umich.edu. The refreshed website allows students to apply for multiple jobs in one visit and offers better navigation and tools for visitors, including employers. The Student Employment Office is part of the U-M Office of Financial Aid and assists students looking for part-time work while attending college.
We sometimes request federal tax return transcripts or other documents from students and parents as we consider students for gift aid. You will receive an email from our office if we need these. Log in to Wolverine Access for a list of needed documents and submit them to our office by June 1.
U-M has begun awarding financial aid to selected entering freshmen for 2017-18. Students who have received estimated or official financial aid awards will receive an email advising them to check Wolverine Access to view, print or download their Award Notice. Read more about the process here.
