Financial Aid Notification

Electronic Financial Aid Notification

SFAS awards financial aid once the FAFSA and any required documents are processed. Students will receive email instructions to login to www.my.uic.edu. From there, students can click on the "Student" tab and then click on the portlet for "Electronic Financial Aid Notification" and select an appropriate aid year.

SFAS begins awarding aid to incoming students in March and continuing students in June.

Important: Initial financial aid notifications assume full-time enrollment for the fall and spring terms. When reviewing a financial aid notification online, report any changes in enrollment. Any unreported adjustments in enrollment will be corrected after the add/drop period each semester. Students who do not enroll full-time will be billed after the add/drop period for any refund/financial aid overpayment if they do not report the changes.

Financial Aid Notification Adjustments

Financial aid awards can be increased, decreased, or canceled at any time due to outside financial resources (tuition waivers and scholarships), pending required documentation, corrections to FAFSAs, funding availability and/or enrollment adjustments. After any adjustments, students will receive an email notification of a revised electronic financial aid notification.
