Spring Semester 2009

Welcome back everyone and a special welcome to those of you who are new to UMM for the 2009 spring semester! We hope your semester is off to a great start! It's really nice to see the campus buzzing with student activity again!

If all was in place, your spring semester financial aid should have disbursed to your student account last week. Make sure you check your “financial aid status� online using the quicklink on the student one stop Web site. Here you will be able to track your financial aid progress through the six steps from application to payment.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office.

It's FAFSA time!

My how the time flies, it's FAFSA time again! The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only application needed to receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid at Morris.

If you are a new, transfer or returning student who did not file a FAFSA last year, you should complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you are unable to access the FAFSA online, you may obtain a paper FAFSA or file via the phone by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center toll-free at 1-800-433-3243.

Returning students who filed a FAFSA last year should file a renewal FAFSA online by UMM's priority deadline date of March 1, 2009. If your renewal FAFSA is submitted after March 1st you may not receive institutional grant funds.

If you/your parent(s) have not completed a 2008 Federal Tax Form, you may estimate your 2008 tax information or use your 2007 Federal Tax Form. Make corrections to the processed FAFSA online once you/your parent(s) have completed your 2008 Federal Tax Form(s).

If you have questions or need assistance, the Financial Aid staff will help you Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm by phone at 320-589-6035/1-800-992-8863, in-person at 105 Behmler Hall, or e-mail morrisfa@morris.umn.edu.
