- Late Fee Reminder - November 7th, a $175 late fee will be assessed for student's who still have a remaining Fall 2016 balance.
- ATTENDANCE REMINDER: Attendance affects financial aid award amounts! During the first 60% of the semester, you "earn" federal student aid by attending/participating in academic-related activity. If you either withdraw from all classes or stop attending and earn an "F" or "NB" grade, UAA is required to recalculate how much funding you earned based on last day of attendance. In some cases, students who failed to earn 100% of the aid received, may need to return money. Visit our "Total Withdrawal Policy" webpage for additional details.
- GRADUATING? Students with federal loans have 30 days to complete to complete "Exit Counseling" once they graduate. This rule also applies to students who drop below half-time status or totally withdraw from classes. Visit our $avvy $eawolf Exit Counseling Resource Page for additional information.
