What's on GWeb

The Financial Aid Menu on GWeb is organized into the following sections.

Cost of Attendance

Student-specific cost of attendance components and amounts. The components that make up a student's cost of attendance include:

  • Books and Supplies
  • Fees
  • Loan Origination Fee(s)
  • Personal Expenses
  • Room and Board
  • Transportation Allowance
  • Tuition


Student-specific requirements, holds, and academic progress statuses for effective terms.

  • Student Requirements - The Student Requirements tab shows both outstanding and completed requirements (requested documents and/or forms) needed to complete a student’s financial aid application or to disburse awarded funds to a student's university account.
  • Holds - Financial aid holds may be placed on a student's record to prevent financial aid from being awarded or disbursed. Students with financial aid holds should contact our office in order to resolve any issues and have the hold removed.
  • Academic Progress - This section shows a students academic progress and is based on academic performance for each term that a student is enrolled. Progress towards the completion of a student's program is also a factor. Poor academic performance can affect eligibility for federal, state, and institutional financial assistance.
