“Dear Dawn”

Dear Dawn:

When will I know my loans have been packaged for the September 2017 Semester?

I don’t want any delays in my financial aid for the Fall.    

Sincerely, No Delay


Dear No Delay: 

Once loans are packaged, an email will go out to your WMU Cooley email account. The email will give you directions on how to “Accept” your loan(s).  Fin Aid will start this process around registration time. 

To check your status, Change to Award Year 2017/18.  Loans will show as “Pending” until you accept the loan(s).        

Regards, Dawn

ArtPrize will be from September 20 to October 8, 2017

From its website:  ArtPrize began nearly eight years ago as an experiment - a totally new event, unlike anything the world had ever seen. For 19 days each fall, three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids become an open playing field where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown, and it’s all free and open to the public.
