October 2018

Greetings Parents and Families!

I hope that you and your student have settled in and are feeling part of the GWU family! 

We’re coming to the midpoint of the semester and with that brings October and the fall season! What’s so special about October? It means it’s time to complete your student’s Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA) for 2019-2020! It’s as easy as logging on to the website at www.fafsa.gov and submitting your updated tax information for 2017. 

There’s also still time to complete anything outstanding for Fall 2018 as it relates to your financial aid and/or your student bill.  We are here to help offer guidance and resources.  We want your time here at GWU to be as stress free as possible, so let us help you tie up any loose ends!

As a reminder, be sure to follow the ‘Life Cycle of a Student’ calendar to make sure you are aware of what’s happening during specific months and to keep up with important deadlines. Please encourage your student to keep a check on their GWU email!

The Financial Planning Office is available to assist you in any way possible.  We can be reached by email at financialplanning@gardner-webb.edu or by phone at (704) 406-4243.  Our office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 am until 5 pm. 

Let us know how we can help you!
