The U-M Office of Financial Aid is surveying students on the Ann Arbor campus about costs for books, housing and personal expenses to help develop budgets used when awarding financial aid. If you wish, you may also enter for a chance at one of three $50 Amazon gift cards. The survey runs through Jan. 15, 2017.
The 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid is now available, and we encourage both prospective and continuing students to complete it and apply for federal financial aid as soon as possible. An executive action from President Obama makes the FAFSA available earlier for students applying for financial aid in Fall Term 2017. Students will also use information from 2015 tax returns.
Thinking about withdrawing from that Fall Term class? Be aware that doing so can affect your financial aid, depending upon when you do this. Also, if you attend at least half-time but less than full-time you might not be eligible for the full amount of financial aid you were originally offered.
