Newly admitted students that have met the priority FAFSA deadline begin receiving award letters in the mail starting in mid-March.

Continuing students are notified that their award is available on DuckWeb starting in June after spring grades. Award letters are mailed throughout the year based on the date the FAFSA was completed.

After you receive your award letter, complete the financial aid checklist.

Newly Admitted Students

Your award letter will outline the types and amounts of financial aid for which you are eligible during the academic year:

  • Grants and scholarships: it is assumed you wish to accept these funds so they are "accepted" by default
  • Loans and work-study: offered as "pending" and must be actively accepted

If you are not sure if you want to accept a loan, it is better to accept it now and make changes later so you have time to plan for the coming year. Funds are limited so if you decline a loan now, we may not be able to reinstate it later.

Your award represents the UO’s best offer of assistance based on your Expected Family Contribution. Awards cannot be negotiated and we do not match offers from other schools. If you or your parents have experienced a sudden loss of income (divorce, death, job loss, etc.) please contact our office.
