Welcome to Financial Aid 101!


Dear {first_name},

Here in Financial Aid, we know that financing your education can be intimidating and confusing. That's why we've developed "Financial Aid 101"—an email series designed to help you fully understand the financial aid process at DU.

Every Sunday morning, we'll deliver information and tips about a different topic to your inbox. Throughout the series, you'll learn about many aspects of financial aid, such as:

  • Using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool
  • When to expect your award letter
  • Finding additional scholarships
  • Comparing award offers
  • Managing unmet costs

This Sunday, we'll kick off our series with "The Financial Aid Process and Checking Your Status," which will give you a general overview of how it all works and explain how to check the status of your financial aid application.

We hope you'll find all the answers you need with this email series. But if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office. We look forward to working with you!

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enrollment and Director of Financial Aid
