During the above open advising times, you may send a message (with your UMID number) through Google Chat to email@example.com to initiate a virtual meeting.

Schedule a 15 minute Advising Appointment:
Click on the Advising System to schedule a 15 minute appointment to meet by Google Meet at a designed time with Michelle Gurski, Assistant Director of Ross Financial Aid.

Required Reading is the reference and resource guide for students who are awarded financial aid at the University of Michigan. We call it Required Reading because it answers many questions students ask about their financial aid and provides information you must know in order to receive financial aid at U-M. You are expected to read it in order to understand the rights and responsibilities that go along with receiving your aid.
Read the Office of Financial Aid Newsletter for important tips and information. Previous newsletters can also be found at this web link.
