“Dear Dawn”

Dear Dawn: 

     I haven’t gotten my award letter notice.  Do you know why?        

     Sincerely, Worried 

Dear Worried,  

I recommend that you check the document screen in NetParetner under 2017/18.  Check for “Not Received” documents.  If they are “Received” once loans are awarded an email is sent out to accept award(s).  If not sure email [email protected]  or contact your Enrollment & Student Services Coordinator in person or via email.

Forgot Password

You may reset your own Password if you don’t remember what it is.

(NetPartner Password not Federal PIN)  

Go to the NetPartner Log In Screen.  At the bottom of the box you are given two options.  Click on “Forgot Password ” and go through the process to reset your PIN.

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.
