Helping With Questions about "Financial Aid"
Dear UW-Parkside Community,
With the fall semester soon to begin, the call volume has significantly increased in the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid. While we try to answer every phone call, many people are calling other offices because they cannot get through to us. If this happens to you, here's how you can help the students:
- The biggest question right now is, "When am I getting my refund?" We will begin disbursing fall aid next Monday, August 26th. The first financial aid refunds are scheduled for Wednesday, the 28th
- Please direct students to their account on SOLAR which will have the information that most students are seeking to get answered.
- As much as you are able, please refrain from forwarding calls to direct numbers within our office other than x2574. If you can help get answers and call the person back on our behalf that too will be a big help.
Your help and patience is deeply appreciated during this very busy time of year.
PLEASE share the following message with staff in your departments and others you may think would benefit from knowing this information.
The Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid
