2016-17 Financial Aid Awards and 2016 Fall Billing Statements

The Office of Financial Aid is preparing 2016-17 financial aid awards for current students. Students should monitor the Financial Aid Self-Service area in WebAdvisor throughout the summer to determine if any outstanding issues need to be resolved in order to complete their 2016-17 financial aid award. As long as students have no outstanding issues, 2016-17 financial aid information will be available in mid-June via the Financial Aid Self-Service link where students will be able to monitor the status of their financial aid checklist items, view missing documents, and accept or decline their awards.

Latest from the Office of Admission

If you know of a high school student who would be a great fit as a Purple Ace, please share the following information with them. Read more.

Meet one of our Newest Purple Aces

It is never easy coming to a new city, town, or even a new school. But what about a new country? Originally from Nigeria, Aaron Cochran has had to conquer all of those obstacles on his path to becoming a freshman at the University of Evansville. Aaron has risen above all odds to not only be admitted into a top-tier private university, but to become a Division I athlete as well. Although he was born in another country, Aaron eventually moved to the small town of Haubstadt, Indiana. The Gibson Southern High School graduate will be running cross country at UE for Coach Don Walters. As a Purple Ace, Aaron will start to fulfill his dream of becoming a social worker and helping other students, potentially even international students, who face many of the same challenges he faced in making the college dream a reality. The Office of Admission is excited to welcome Aaron and all other incoming freshmen to the UE family!

Counseling Tips for Parents:

Be a good listener.
If your student calls and sounds distressed about their campus experiences, listen, but don’t panic. He or she may have just had a single bad day and needs to “vent” to you, or it might actually be anxiety or depression. Remind them that UE counselors can help with stress management, positive coping strategies, or techniques to minimize anxiety or depression.
