We had a great turnout for the webinar on changes to student award payments on Thursday, May 21. If you were unable to attend or would like to revisit what we talked about, you can find the webinar recording on the Graduate School’s website.

We received a lot of excellent questions during the webinar, but we ran out of time and didn’t get the opportunity to answer them all.  We made note of those questions and provided answers to them in the attached document, Answers to Questions During Webinar. The document contains the questions that were answered during the webinar as well.

As a reminder, if you have staff members that will need access to GradStar to process student payments beginning this fall, the access requests will need to be submitted by the Access Request Coordinator in your school. You can find the Student Administration Access Form on  Please check to make sure staff don’t already have access before submitting an access form.  To allow ample time for training to be completed and access to be granted, please submit all requests prior to Wednesday, June 30.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. Likewise, if you would like us to present to your business managers about these changes, let us know and we’ll schedule a session for your school.
