Federal Financial Aid

You may check the status of your financial assistance by clicking the Student Services tab at the MyCentral portal and navigating to the Financial Aid Checklist.  This checklist is a tool to assist you in identifying any incomplete financial aid requirement(s) and linking you to resources to complete the requirement(s).  

Looking for a quick way to review a summary of your processed aid? Click on the Student Services tab and navigate to the My Account box.  Here you can view a summary of your charges and your financial aid awards.  Items found under the View Memo’d Aid link have not yet been fully processed as payments to your UCM account and can not be subtracted from the balance due.  Items found under the View Authorized Aid link are fully processed and can be subtracted from your account balance.   Following are some of the reasons your aid may still be in memo’d status:

  • ENROLLMENT:  Click here for details about the number of credit hours needed to permit the various types of assistance to credit your UCM account.

  • Stafford Loan and/or PLUS Loan Promissory Note(s):  Once the Office of Student Financial Services has certified the Stafford (student) Loan and/or PLUS (parent) Loan funds that have been ‘accepted’ at the MyCentral Portal, an email notification is sent to you.  If a promissory note needs to be completed, this is done on-line here.

  • Stafford Loan Entrance Counseling:  First-time Federal Stafford Loan borrowers at UCM must complete this requirement by clicking here (just once, though)
