I have not received mine and am wondering if this is something I should call about on Monday morning?

I have had access to the digital version of my award letter since mid-last week, but have not received a physical version as of yet. I'm sure they're probably still on their way.

Are you talking about the scholarship info they email out, or something different that details your loan amounts and such?


Your total Financial Aid package letter (loan amounts, etc.), just to clarify.

Okay, so they just sent out financial aid access stuff, but I have no idea how to log in. I've gathered that I need like four number/username/password combos but I can't seem to figure out how to retrieve any of them. Maybe I'm just failing. Anyone been able to figure it out? I think it comes down to the fact that I don't have the ID number...unless I'm forgetting receiving that.

Just came here for the exact same info. I have the UIN, but the Admit ID is throwing me for a loop. It says on the email it is somewhere in the Admittance Letter, but I don't see it there. Tmon, have you deposited yet? Maybe this is a number we get when we deposit?

Where'd you get your ID number?

They wouldn't make us deposit before we could retrieve our financial aid info...

I am with you guys on this. I don't know what my UIN is or how to long in and they are closed right now. Couldn't they mail me a letter or make it simple

Yeah, I've definitely figured out where to start, but you need your University Identification Number, which I can't find in anything I've received.

I got my UIN from a separate letter that Financial Aid sent me telling me that I needed to update my FAFSA. Try shooting finaid@illinois.edu an email and asking for it. I corresponded with them several times over FAFSA issues and they were helpful.

Just got an email with UIN and Admit ID in it. Looked like a mass e-mail, so check your inboxes.

I got the ID email also, but I didn't get the email with the link to actual letter. Did anyone get that? If so, could someone link to it?

Ok I got the email but when I try and use my UIN and Admit ID it tells me there is not a valid NetID associated with ti. Anyone else having a problem?

You have to jump through a bunch of hoops. First thing you have to do is create a NetID account using your UIN and Admit ID. Then, once you have your NetID and password, you need to create an Enterprise ID. You then use that Enterprise ID and password to access your financial award letter. All of these instructions are in the e-mail I received from the school - check your inbox and spam folders.

Has anyone else checked their awards yet? I have to admit I don't understand a word of what I'm looking at. Here is what I see for my Award Summary:

Fed Direct Loan Unsubsidized
Federal Direct Grad PLUS
Law Scholar-Tuition Restricted

My question is this: what on earth is the "Law Scholar - Tuition Restricted" bar? Is that your scholarship money? It doesn't equal the amount of scholarship money I was offered, is this a mistake?

edited because TLS hates my pretty chart that I slaved to make.

Fund Status Fall 2012 - Urbana-Champaign Spring 2012 - Urbana-Champaign Total

Double check it. It does it by semester it looks like, so the total number at the end should be the correct amount. You might only be looking at semester, or miscalculated in-state status?

At least, that is how mine was.

Nope I've checked and rechecked. The math simply doesn't add up. How does yours work? For instance, if I received a 5k/year scholarship, should I see $2,500 under each of Fall and Spring 2013 in the Law-Scholar Tuition Restricted row? (these are just made up numbers) If that's the case my numbers are definitely off from the scholarship they offered me.

Edit: is the Law Scholar Tuition Restricted the amount of money they are giving you (which you don't need to pay back) or the amount of money you have to pay after your scholarship is deducted? Or is it something else? I simply can't figure this out.

Yeah, mine was 25% off in state, so I have 4K and change under each semester, and 9K and change under the year total.

Also, I am dropping my app today, so hopefully that frees up my money/spot for somebody else. The school is awesome and the students were super nice at ASW, but Wustl is just a better fit for me personally.

I have my UIN and Net ID, but when I go into the whole enterprise thing to set up a password, it won't let me do it.

Can you describe the error you're getting in more detail? I went through the whole process with no hiccups.

Have you claimed your NetID yet? The process is a little confusing, but first you go to https://netidclaim.uiuc.edu/claim/claim.fcgi Enter all your info in there and these will give you your NetID and you set your NetID password. Then go to Enterprise, where you use your NetID to set up your Enterprise password/account. Then you view your letter in Enterprise.

Yeah, that was easily one of the most complicated things I've dealt with in admissions. I'm not even sure I could explain all the steps to people. Good luck and godspeed, friends. :lol:
