Financial aid decisions are made by the Office of Student Services and Enrollment Management (OSS); the Recruitment, Admissions, Student Services, and Financial Aid (RASSFA) Committee; special program faculty; the Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP); the Alumni Board of Governors; and/or the Office of Global Activities (OGA) based on priorities established by the School of Social Work governing faculty and the requirements of a particular grant or scholarship.
Information is disseminated to students by the Office of Student Services and Enrollment Management regarding the application process and deadlines for application. It is the student's responsibility to utilize this information and ensure that all required materials are submitted to the appropriate offices in accordance with any stated deadlines.
Dual Degree Financial Aid Policy
Each school has separate financial aid application procedures, eligibility criteria, and award allocations; therefore, it is important that students plan their dual degree enrollment well in advance of deadlines for financial aid and keep both schools' financial aid offices informed of enrollment plans. During semesters where dual degree students receive grant or scholarship aid from the School of Social Work they must enroll in at least 9 credits under their social work career in Wolverine Access. Dual degree students accepting School of Social Work grant and scholarship aid in a given term cannot also accept aid from their other unit of enrollment for the same term of enrollment. The School of Social Work typically provides a maximum of three terms of financial aid for dual degree students. Any exceptions to the Dual Degree Financial Aid Policy need to be approved by the assistant dean for enrollment management.
Comprehensive financial aid information is available on the SSW website.
