April 30, 2016 is the priority deadline to apply for 2016-17 financial aid at U-M. We must receive your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by this date to consider you for all financial aid programs. Entering students also complete the CSS Financial Aid PROFILE to be considered for grant aid.
The U-M Office of Financial Aid has begun awarding financial aid to entering freshmen for 2016-17. Students with awards should receive an email advising them to check Wolverine Access to view, print or download their Award Notice. Notices are sent on a rolling basis as students complete their aid applications.
In order to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, students now need an Federal Student Aid ID, or FSA ID, made up of a username and password. Students and parents should create their own in order to electronically sign their FAFSAs and other federal financial aid documents.
