Returning student awards

Awarding of financial aid for returning students has begun. Watch your WMU email for updates, as well as social media. Once awards have been made, students must complete any requirements in order for their awards to disburse. To ensure awards disburse on time for fall semester, have all verification, requirements and appeals finished by Aug. 1. Check GoWMU for more information.

Tuition assistance for undocumented students available

WMU is committed to helping students find the resources they need to enroll and graduate. Privately funded assistance is available on a limited basis for non-citizens who are undocumented and having difficulty paying their tuition. If you are undocumented and need assistance with your tuition and residence hall payments, we invite you to complete the 2014-15 Undocumented / DACA Student Financial Aid Application on our website here: In addition to tuition assistance, students with a work-eligible status such as DACA are eligible for jobs on campus. Information about student employment is available at BroncoJOBS: If you have questions, please contact Bronco Express, (269) 387-6000.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) appeals
