Entering students: Check Wolverine Access for aid notification

U-M classroom

10/24/11 Students fill a hall for a Chemistry lecture during a "Day in the Life" of the University of Michigan on October 24, 2011.

The U-M Office of Financial Aid has begun awarding financial aid to entering freshmen for 2016-17. Students with 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

Notices were generated for entering 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.

Award Notices 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.

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, 2016 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.

Information for Entering Students coverDid you receive an Award Notice and have questions? First, open the “Information for Entering Students” publication where we explain some basics for entering students and instructions about what to do next.

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.

As always, if you have questions please contact us by phone at 734-763-6600 or via email
