Davenport University strongly recommends submitting requested documents, forms, and paperwork here. This is a secure upload feature that minimizes the transmission of sensitive information via email. Please note that the following Financial Aid documents must arrive at the Financial Aid Office in their original form: Citizenship Certification; Statement of Educational Purpose; and the Schell Loan Promissory Note. These documents cannot be faxed, uploaded, or emailed. They must be delivered in person to the Financial Aid Office or mailed to:
Attn: Financial Aid Office
6191 Kraft Ave. SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49512
To determine which documents or actions the Financial Aid Office is requesting from you, log into the Student Connection here and view the information on the 'Home' tab under the 'Unsatisfied Requirements' section.
Davenport University recognizes that many households have had a significant drop in income in the 2020 calendar year due to the pandemic and accompanying economic downturn. The information provided on the 2020-2021 FAFSA by students and families may not reflect the current economic situation.
Students, their spouses and parents (if the student is dependent) who have suffered a loss of income and/or job due to the COVID-19 pandemic or economic downturn should submit a Special Consideration Request.
Financial aid recipients interested in the Incomplete grade option should speak with a Financial Aid Counselor before the request is submitted. Incomplete grades may cause a return of financial aid funds already received, and can also negatively affect a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress standing. Please reach out to the Financial Aid Office via email, email@example.com, or by phone, 866-774-0004, or for more details on how you might be impacted.
The U.S. Department of Education has asked schools to determine whether a student withdrew or stopped attending DU due to reasons related to COVID-19.
Normally when you withdraw we are required to return any unearned Title IV funds (Pell Grant, FSEOG, TEACH Grants, Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans, PLUS loans) to the Department of Education. If you withdrew or stopped attending due to COVID-19, the requirement may be waived. According to the U.S. Department of Education, "Allowable circumstances include, but are not limited to, illness of the student or family member, need to become a caregiver or first responder, loss of childcare, economic hardship, inability to access wi-fi due to closed facilities, or an increase in work hours as a result of the COVID-19 emergency."
Students who withdraw or stop attending DU will receive an email detailing the possible waiver. In order to receive the waiver, students MUST respond to the email explaining how their withdrawal is related to COVID-19. Failure to submit the statement will result in funds being returned to the Department of Education.
