The Financial Aid office remains OPEN during this period when classes are being conducted off-campus by alternate teaching methods, with a few exceptions:
1. We strongly encourage you to contact us by email if you have questions regarding your financial aid. Office personnel are available to respond to inquiries during regular office hours.
If you have an emergency and need short-term funding, you can see if you qualify for the UWRF Emergency Grant or Loan.
The Financial Aid office will continue to make and update financial aid offers to current and future students, pay funds to students' accounts, and review satisfactory academic progress appeals. We are here to help you during this challenging period.
Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
The Spring Semester 2020 deadline for submitting an appeal for suspension of financial aid eligibility for lack of satisfactory academic progress has been extended through April 30th, 2020.
This is in recognition of difficulties students may have encountered in obtaining all necessary documents to submit an appeal as a result of the current national emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Appeals submitted after April 6th, 2020 may include a check of academic progress with current instructors. Current academic performance may be considered by the committee when deciding an appeal.
