Some holds may impact your ability to register, send transcripts, or receive a diploma.  Other holds simply serve as markers and do not impact any services.  With registration and graduation quickly approaching, check your holds on CaneLink and work now to remove them.  You can Elevate Your Game by checking regularly thereafter just in case a new hold is added so you can act right away.

Financial Aid Packaging Updates

Feel at ease … Summer is coming!


Summer 2022 aid packages will be issued to students who (a) have a completed 2021-2022 FAFSA on file and (b) are enrolled at least half-time in courses that count toward their degree requirements, but only after (c) bills are released for the summer term.  Summer 2022 bills will be released on Monday, April 25th.

Fall/Spring 2022-2023 aid packages will be issued to students sometime in the summer, but the actual timeframes are still to be determined.  Students should periodically review their required 2022-2023 financial aid documents via CaneLink—this includes the 2022-2023 FAFSA—to ensure any newly requested documents are submitted and reviewed in a timely fashion.

Stay tuned for additional packaging updates and important billing dates in our future communications …

The University has mailed all 1098-T and 1042-S tax forms to eligible students.  We recommend you review our detailed 1098-T and 1042-S knowledge articles if you have any questions about these forms, and then reach out to our team if you need any additional assistance.

Financial Aid Document Submission Requests

Missing Information Letters (MILs) are regularly sent to students via their UM email if they have any financial aid documents that are pending submission or evaluation.  Once submitted, these documents can take up to 15 business days to be reviewed.

If you receive a MIL, simply log in to CaneLink -> View Financial Aid -> 2021+ -> Documents and Messages to learn more about the documents being requested and how you can submit them.

Elevate Your Game and don’t wait for a MIL to be sent your way; check CaneLink to review your pending documents for this year (i.e., 2021-2022) and next year (i.e., 2022-2023).

Common Document = “Conflict-Add’l Info May Be Required”

  • This document is simply a marker to let you know other documents may be requested of you as the financial aid team works on developing your financial aid package; keep an eye out for additional MILs in case other documents are requested
