Top Financial Services Questions

How do I get my 1098T?

You can view and print your 1098T electronically here. As part of the University's global online delivery process, electronic delivery allows you to access your 1098-T earlier and easier. You will be notified by email once we issue the statements and will gain immediate access to your 1098-T detail without mail delivery delay. You will then be able to print this information securely from your own home rather than having it sent via the postal service. In addition, obtaining this tax information online is one small way you can personally help the environment and it is consistent with other institutional student business functions such as admissions, registration, billing, and direct deposit.

My account is showing a credit balance. When and how do I request a refund?

For students with a credit balance on the student account (credit balances show in parentheses), refunds can be processed starting on or about the first day of classes. Funds showing as "pending" aid can not be refunded. To request a refund, the student must log into UDSIS and select "Request a Refund" under the "Finances" heading. The link is a web form the student must complete. Simply follow the instructions. Refunds are processed either through direct deposit (quickest method) or by check. If you have a question regarding your refund request, and the 10-14 day processing period has passed, please submit your ReqID.

What happens to my financial aid if I move off-campus?

If you intend to move off-campus next academic year, select off-campus on your FAFSA. Your cost-of-attendance budget (COA) will then allow you to use any excess funds above fixed costs (tuition, fees) to pay for off-campus expenses. To receive any excess funds, please "Request a Refund" from the student's UDSIS account. Also, make sure you have proper arrangements (excluding financial aid) in place to pay rent if it is due before classes start. Finally, if you change your housing status mid-year or after you file your FAFSA, email Student Financial Services to see how your COA and aid will be affected. Note: Delaware residents receiving an "On-Campus Need-Based Grant" will lose eligibility if they change from an on-campus resident to off-campus status.

When is the best time to file my FAFSA or Free Application For Federal Student Aid?

The University of Delaware awards financial aid on a first-come, first-complete basis, so it is best to apply through the FAFSA as soon after January 1st as possible. Recommended filing dates for undergraduates are as follows: Freshmen should complete the FAFSA by 2/15 prior to the fall of admission; upperclassmen should complete the FAFSA by 4/15 prior to the aid year for which they are applying.
