  • 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!

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.

  • What's a Credit Score?

    Many people don’t really know how potential creditors, and others, use credit reports, or what they look for in making lending decisions about a person. And most importantly, they often don’t realize how their purchasing and spending actions can influence their credit score, until it’s too late. Please visit our credit report site to learn more about your credit report and credit score.
