Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

For most students, the first step to receiving financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.  This is the basic data-collection form that the federal government has designed for U.S. citizens, permanent residents and other eligible non-citizens.

The FAFSA can be completed on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov or, if the student prefers, s/he can obtain a paper application by calling the federal financial aid information number, 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).  The on-line FAFSA allows student information to be processed quickly, and reduces errors due to incomplete applications and illegible handwriting.

The on-line application must be signed, either with a Federal PIN number, which can be obtained from the federal PIN website, www.pin.ed.gov, or from the FAFSA website above;  or, a student may complete the form on line and then print, sign and mail the signature page to the federal processor’s address on the form.

When filing your FAFSA, be sure to include the UDM School of Law Title IV institution code, E00392.  If you are a Dual JD Program student and wish to receive aid at both UDM and University of Windsor, include both the UDM code and the UW code: G06689.

Students must apply for financial aid for each year for which they wish to receive funds.  The on-line FAFSA becomes available by January 2 each year for the fall of the same year.

New and prospective students should not wait to be admitted to apply for aid.

UDM’s priority deadline date is April 1 each year; however, students who wish to participate in the Federal Work Study Program should have their application completed and returned by the end of February to have the best chance of receiving a Work Study award.

Red Mass - UDM Law Campus

Tuesday, September 29, 2015 - 12:00 pm

UDM's 103rd Annual Red Mass and Renewal of the Lawyer's Oath of Commitment will be held at Ss. Peter and Paul Jesuit Church beginning at 12:00 p.m., followed by a complimentary luncheon in the atrium of the School of Law.  Red Mass is an occasion for judges, lawyers, civic leaders, faculty, staff, and law students of all faiths to pray together at the beginning of the new judicial term, asking God to bless, strengthen, and enlighten us, so that in cooperation and mutual trust we may effectively achieve justice for all.

The Most Reverend George V. Murry, S.J., Ph.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown, Ohio, will celebrate the Mass.  Hon. Patrick J. Duggan ('58) of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan will lead the Renewal of the Lawyer's Oath of Commitment.
