How do withdrawals and grades affect your future aid?

Withdrawing from courses or not obtaining a passing grade can impact your financial aid eligibility. If you want to remain eligible for federal and state financial aid programs, including work-study, you must make satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward your degree. For a complete explanation of SAP, view the policy online.

Available - 24/7

Have you been awarded aid?  Is your aid ready to pay?   Are you missing requirements?    Check out the status of your financial aid on GOWMU.

Work-study cancellations begin October 22

Fall work-study recipients must have earnings charged to their fall work-study awards by Tuesday, October 21, or their awards will be canceled for the remainder of the 2014-15 financial aid year. If a student has been hired, but will not be paid through work-study until after this date, the student and the employer must notify the financial aid office by e-mailing on or before the October 21deadline.

E-mails received after October 21will not be considered and once an award has been canceled it will not be reinstated.

TIP - If you have questions or concerns, we can help. The financial aid process may seem a little confusing. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Call (269) 387-6000 or stop by Bronco Express in the Bernhard Center. No appointments needed.
