March 14, 2019 - Entering Student Profile issue has been resolved.  The entering student profile is now available on the 'Applicant Homepage' via the 'Financial Aid Tasks' tile.  For students who have received and accepted their offer of admission, the 'Student Homepage' tile will be assigned at the end of April, beginning of May.  Please use the links available within the Financial Aid Tasks tile.  If you do not see any links in your task tile, please email award1@uwindsor.ca.

February 21, 2019 - The Entering Student Award Profile is now available. Students who are entering the University of Windsor, directly from High School, have been sent a UWinAward Consideration Request to their 'Tasks' tile. Once completed, the UWinAward Entering Student Profile will be assigned (within 24 hours) for students to complete. The profiles are due by March 31st 2019. 

All other applicants (International and Out of Province students)  will be assigned the UWinAward Consideration Request by February 2019.

Important Note - Issue Identified - It has come to our attention that students who do not yet have an offer of admission or who have an offer of admission but who have not yet accepted their offer of admission, do not currently have access to the 'Tasks' tile in order to complete their UWinAward Entering Student Profile.  We are working on the issue and updates will be posted here.  Thank you for your continued patience.

December 14, 2018 - OSAP displaying on your student account as anticipated aid. On December 10, available OSAP data was applied to your student account as anticipated aid so that you could see how much OSAP funding was pending.  If you have sufficient anticipated aid to cover your Winter term tuition and fees, then you do not have to make a payment.  When we confirm your enrolment in early January, your OSAP funding will cover your balance outstanding.  Please note that the OSAP information that was applied to your student account was current as on December 7.  Changes made to your OSAP assessment after this date are not yet reflected.  It will be updated within the next few days.

December 14, 2018 - It has been brought to our attention that the most recent early admission offers that were sent with financial aid information had a missing link specific to the on-line application process for scholarships and bursaries - UWinAward.  The correct link should have been UWinAward.  The scholarship and bursary application process for prospective students will be available in early February. Please check back here for further updates.
