The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships began processing financial aid for the 2012-13 academic year at the end of March. Be sure you are checking your myUMBC account for any updates to your account and to view your award package. To access your award screen, go to “Billing and Personal Finances” under the Topics tab on your myUMBC homepage, then select “Financial Aid Inquiry,” and finally select the academic year. Here you will be able to view your financial aid package. Remember, we do not send out any paper notifications; all notifications are sent electronically to your myUMBC account.
If you have not yet received an award package for the 2012-13 academic year, be sure to review your alerts, you could have missing information on your account. If you have missing information or documents, we will notify you via your myUMBC account. We will post an alert to your account letting you know that you have outstanding to-do’s regarding your financial aid. Your to-do’s describe what information or documents you need to submit in order to have your financial aid processed. If you have any questions about your alerts or to-do’s you should contact your Financial Aid Counselor for more information.
