Entering students: Check Wolverine Access for 2017-18 aid notification

Ross Global Initiatives Program, where students are visiting Chile.

The U-M Office of Financial Aid has begun awarding financial aid to entering freshmen for 2017-18. Students with financial aid awards will receive an email advising them to check Wolverine Access to view, print or download their Award Notice.

See our ‘Using Wolverine Access’ page for navigation help

Aid notification was sent to entering resident freshmen who had completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE.  Those receiving Estimated Award Notices should also check Wolverine Access for other application documents that may be required.

Estimated awards will continue to be sent to entering students on a rolling basis as they complete their financial aid application documents. Official Award Notices are sent after students complete their aid applications and, if requested, submit other required documents needed to fully review their aid eligibility.

Note that merit scholarships from U-M are primarily offered by your admitting school or college in March or April so may not be shown on your initial Award Notice. Check with your admitting academic program for more details.

Haven’t applied for financial aid yet? Don’t wait! Apply now so you can receive an estimate of your aid before the May 1 enrollment deposit deadline for U-M. We must have your FAFSA and PROFILE no later than April 30, 2017 to consider you for need-based U-M grants and scholarships as well as federal aid programs. See our New Undergraduates page for more information.

If you have additional questions about financial aid at U-M, view or download “Required Reading” which has details about aid programs, the terms and conditions of your aid and other information about how aid is awarded. All students are expected to reference this guide so that they understand their rights and responsibilities in receiving financial aid.

If you have further questions, please contact us by phone at 734-763-6600 or via email financial.aid@umich.edu.
