If you have been approved for financial aid, your money will not be released until your instructor confirms your attendance. To receive financial aid on the normal distribution timeline, your attendance must be confirmed within seven calendar days of the course start date.
If you are enrolled in courses that start throughout the semester, you will not receive any financial aid until your attendance has been confirmed for ALL courses. So, if your last course does not start until October, you will not receive your financial until the attendance has been confirmed for that course.
Students can see whether their attendance has been confirmed from the My Classes app in MyUWF. For online courses, you must actively participate in the course in order to have your attendance confirmed. For example, posting to a discussion or turning in an assignment can qualify as active participation; simply logging into a course does not qualify. For face-to-face courses, you must attend class within seven calendar days of the course start date.
If you have questions regarding your attendance confirmation, please contact the instructor of the course or the Office of Financial Aid.
Until you see a green check for your course, your attendance has not been confirmed and no money will be disbursed for that course.
