Information Release Authorization
Students may authorize their parents or others to have access to their tuition information, including online (web) access to their Tuition Charge Statement.
Mailing of Aid/Refund Checks
If a student is not signed up for direct deposit, any refund or financial aid checks will automatically be mailed to the student’s local address on file. Students must maintain up-to-date address information on MyUW to avoid any postal delays. Aid checks may take up to 10 business days to reach the student by mail; signing up for direct deposit is strongly encouraged for students to receive funds quickly and safely.
For refunds of parent PLUS loans where the parent has designated that the funds not be sent to the student, a refund check will be sent to the parent address supplied on the Master Promissory Note and PLUS Loan Application.
Opt Out of 1098T Paper Form
Want to save yourself some time and help the UW go green? Students may choose to receive the IRS Form 1098-T electronically instead of waiting to have it printed and delivered in the mail. Log on to your MyUW account and select the Electronic IRS Form 1098-T Consent option. Doing so will allow students and authorized parents or guardians, to access 1098-T tax forms from your MyUW account as soon as they are available. It's fast, it's easy, and it's GREEN!
