Duke FinAid: October Highlights
This monthly newsletter features relevant information, helpful tips, and upcoming deadlines to help you make the most of the financial aid available to you. For each headline, you can click the available link to be redirected to our website, or you can scroll down for additional info.
If you indicated on your financial aid application that you have a sibling who is also enrolled as a full-time student and will have tuition expenses this year, you will need to complete the Fall Sibling Enrollment Verification Form this month. Forms were emailed to students in the first week of September and will be due on October 5th. Completion of the form is required for all eligible students, and failure to complete the Sibling Enrollment Verification Form may result in a reduction of financial aid in the Fall semester. Please note that you will be asked to complete a Sibling Enrollment Verification Form for every Fall and Spring semester that your sibling is enrolled as a student.
With registration for the Spring 2013 semester just around the corner, students should make sure that all Bursar account balances have been paid and that there are no registration blocks on their accounts. To check your Bursar balance, sign in on your ACES account at http://www.siss.duke.edu/siss/aces.
Don't forget about Fellowship Week! What is a fellowship? How can I apply for one? Check out the many informational workshops about academic fellowships offered this week, October 1st-4th. Co-sponsored by the Duke University Career Center, Office of Undergraduate Scholars and Fellows (OUSF), Academic Advising Center and Thompson Writing Studio. More information is provided at http://studentaffairs.duke.edu/career/events.
While there are many ways to interact with the financial aid office, our office’s primary method of communicating with you is through email. Any time we need additional documentation from you, have a question about your application, or make a change to your financial aid, we will contact you via your Duke email account. Please check your email frequently and ensure that our general firstname.lastname@example.org email address is not filtered to your spam folder so that you do not miss important requests and information.
As housing assignments are finalized, our office is continuing to make adjustments to students' financial aid packages to reflect actual housing costs. These adjustments will be completed by the end of October. Students who have made changes to their housing status may see a financial aid adjustment made on their ACES account. To learn more Duke's financial aid housing policy, please visit our website.
