SMU is Recognized for Our Commitment to Student Financial Awareness!

In July 2012, the Department of Education sent out a nationwide notice to schools asking them to adopt a new Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.  The Shopping Sheet would clearly show prospective students what a college education would cost.  The model disclosure letter for financial aid helps explain the total cost of a program, including: tuition, fees, costs covered by federal loans and grants, the type and the amount of financial aid a student may qualify for, their estimated student loan debt upon graduation, and information about graduation rates. 

 

Presently, 316 institutions nationwide have agreed to adopt this new award letter style.  We are excited to share that Saint Martin's University is 1 of 4 schools in Washington State to have agreed to use the shopping sheet!  For more information, click: shopping sheet.  

Fall Financial Aid Disbursements for Extension Campus Students

 

On Friday, November 2nd we will begin disbursing financial aid to students attending our extension campus sites.  Our extension campus sites include:  Centralia, Joint Base Lewis McChord, Tacoma CC, Clover Park CC, and Everett CC.  

 

Students should remember to complete their entrance counseling and master promissory note to ensure there are no delays in the disbursement of their financial aid.  If your student is unsure if they have any missing items, please have them contact our office as soon as possible.  

Reminder: Please submit Requested Verification Documents 

 

 We have many students who have not submitted required documentation for finalizing their financial aid for this school year.  If your student's financial aid has not disbursed for the fall term, it is most likely due to missing documents.  

 

Please note that if your student has a large outstanding balance this may prevent them from registering for Spring classes on-time.  To avoid late fees and any delays in registering for Spring term classes, please submit all requested documentation as soon as possible.    

Work-Study Fund Shortage 

 

In an effort to make work-study funds available to students that were not awarded work-study initially,  we are asking that if your student received work-study on their award letter and does not intend to find a work-study position this school year, that they send an email to our office saying: 

 "Please cancel my work-study, I do not intend to use my work-study funds this year."  

 

If your student has any questions about their work-study, please have them contact our office at:               (360) 438-4397 or via email at: finaid@stmartin.edu.

 

Please note: if your student chooses to cancel their work-study this year, they will not be jeopardizing their eligibility for work-study next school year.
