Applying for Aid: Current Students

Current Students

Starting with the 2019-2020 academic year, you will no longer be required to submit the CSS Profile if you filed one during 2018-2019. We will use last year's Profile in conjunction with the new 2019-2020 FAFSA application to determine your financial need. If you filed taxes in 2017 we recommend using the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to import your tax information into the FAFSA. As we process your financial aid application, additional documentation may be required, so please monitor your CaneLink To-Do list.

Summer 2019 - Federal Work Study 

Students who wish to continue working in their current Federal Work Study (FWS) position or obtain a new FWS position, and will not be enrolled in 6 undergraduate summer credits or more at UM need to submit a Federal Work Study Request Form. To qualify students must have already selected their courses at UM for Fall 2019. Please make sure to read the eligibility requirements printed on the form.

Students who are enrolled in 6 or more credits during the summer session do not need to complete a request form. The Office of Financial Assistance and Employment will review your eligibility and award summer FWS. 

Graduating this spring?

If you are graduating this spring semester, please note that you will not be able to continue to work as a student employee at UM after May 11, 2019. We hope that your participation in student employment has enhanced your UM experience.
