Each year the Office of Financial Aid will begin awarding financial aid for new students in Late March/Early April. Students will be notified of receipt of their FAFSA as well as any documentation needed by email and their ToDo lists on MyUB. Award notices will be sent by email, and awards can be viewed on MyUB in the My Student Center section. Returning students are awarded in mid June, once most spring semester grades are posted. Scholarship information may be available before need based awards, the need based awards are then added once your eligibility can be determined.
At this point, the amount of the award is just an estimate, based on the information you provided on your admissions application, your FAFSA and your prior grades. You'll receive a financial aid award notice via email that will ask you to go to MyUB view your need based aid and indicate whether you accept or reject any self-help aid that you have been offered.
Once the Add/Drop period has passed the Office of Financial Aid will review your award based on actual enrollment, make any revisions necessary, and finalize your award. If any revisions have occurred to your original award, you will be notified. You must also notify the Office of Financial Aid of any awards or resources not listed on the award letter.
Revisions -- If your actual enrollment and/or FAFSA information differs from the information your award was based on, there may be a significant difference in the final award. If any changes result in a decrease in aid and a refund has already been posted, you will be responsible for any account balance.
Missing information -- If additional information is required in order to process your application for financial aid, you will receive a missing information email. It is recommended that you periodically check your ToDo list on MyUB. Verification, citizenship, selective service documents should be submitted immediately if requested to avoid delays in processing the awards. Failure to submit the information requested in a timely manner will delay application processing.
