2024 Summer Webinars


Preliminary charges started posting to student accounts recently, although these are subject to change.  At this time, UW Housing and Dining has not posted charges for the residence halls or meal plans.  Our colleagues in the Student Financial Services office will begin electronically sending fall bills to students on or around August 5th. 

Beginning July 16, any financial aid awarded for fall 2024 semester will begin authorizing on student accounts each evening.  This means that students will be able to see what aid has been awarded, accepted, and approved to pay towards the charges on their student accounts.  We are in the process of awarding actual scholarships to fulfill students' Commitment amounts.  As those are awarded, students will be notified to accept them, and then those scholarships will authorize the following evening.

Financial Aid for fall 2024 semester will not disburse against student charges until the evening of Thursday, September 5th.

Starting May 13 and going through August 23, most departments at the University of Wyoming, including our office, will be working summer hours of Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm MDT.  Once fall semester is underway, we will return to regular hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm MDT.  Enjoy your summer!

The 2024-2025 FAFSA is available at Our office is receiving student FAFSA records, and we are packaging students' financial aid each day.  Students will receive an email from our office when that process has been completed.

We have been notified by the Dept of Education that institutions will be slowed down, or delayed, in being able to make necessary corrections to student's FAFSA. This may result in students being packaged later than originally planned.

The Department of Education has now enabled FAFSA corrections for the 2024-2025 application, and you can log into your FAFSA account to make any necessary changes.  Review what kinds of changes are allowed to the FAFSA once it's been processed.

Federal student loan repayment began again in October 2023. This helpful guide, Great Advice for Repayment, provides some ways to help borrowers with this. You should direct any repayment questions you have to your loan servicer.
