(1) How & When
How am I notified?
If you have filed a FAFSA and have been awarded federal and/or state aid, then our office will notify you of your awards by e-mail. Award notification will not occur until you have a complete financial aid file and have been admitted to UofL.
If you are a first-time freshmen, then you will receive a mailed award letter that includes award types and amounts. A brochure of important and helpful information accompanies this award letter. An additional notification is sent to your U of L e-mail account. First-time freshmen who have been awarded a U of L scholarship from the Office of Admissions will receive a separate scholarship award notification from that office.
All other students receive award notification by e-mail directing them to their ULink account.
Additional e-mails are sent whenever awards are revised.
When am I notified?
First-time freshmen scholarship recipients who have been awarded a scholarship by the Office of Admissions receive notification in March.
The first mailing of first-time freshmen award letters by our office typically occurs in late March or early April.
The first round of e-mail notifications for all other students usually begins in early June.
If you submit a degree application for graduation, then your
financial aid may require proration based on your enrollment. This can
occur after the initial awarding.
