Filing the FAFSA
Filling out the FAFSA is required to be eligible for Work-Study funds. To be eligible for Work-Study funds, make sure you file the FAFSA prior to the March 1st priority deadline. You can learn more about the FAFSA here. Make sure that when you fill out the application, you indicate that you wish to receive Work Study funds.
Check the Award Letter
After filing the FAFSA, all students will receive an electronic copy of the award notice in their student email account. First time UM-Flint students will receive a paper copy of this award notice. The award notice will indicate whether or not Work Study has been awarded. Students may also check these awards on SIS by following the instructions for accepting aid below.
What if I wasn't awarded Work-Study funds?
Students may apply for Work-Study each year. Professional experience and learning opportunities may also be found by applying for one of many volunteer opportunities listed on the University Outreach web page.
