Checking Your Status

UI-Integrate Self-Service will be used throughout your time at the University to view and update Personal Information, Financial Aid, Registration & Records and Account Billing Information.

How to Access

Newly admitted undergraduate students may use myIllini to access UI-Integrate Self-Service.

Newly admitted graduate and professional students must claim and set their NetID and NetID password to access UI-Integrate Self-Service. To claim your NetID, you need your Activation Code and your University Identification Number (UIN). This is available to undergraduate students when you log into myIllini and is also located on the back of your Notice of Admission letter (included in the Admitted Student Guide packet) or, for graduate students, in the email sent to you by your department. If you need help with your NetID and NetID Password, contact the Technology Services Help Desk at (217) 244-7000,

Due to FERPA laws, the service desk(s) are only able to help continuing and prospective students with ID and password issues; they are not able to provide information to parents of continuing or prospective students.

For the most efficient answers to your financial aid questions, we encourage you to monitor your status online before contacting our office.

What’s Included

When checking your status, you’ll have access to the following information:

  • Award Letter—Accept, decline, or request changes to your financial aid awards, and report any additional awards you’ve received. Learn more.
  • Award Summary—View a summary of your financial aid awards.
  • Cost of Attendance—View your financial aid cost of attendance budget.
  • Award History—View the history of your financial aid awards while attending Illinois.
  • Scholarship Letter—View the scholarships Illinois has awarded you. This letter is generated when you’ve been awarded an institutional scholarship but either haven’t applied for other forms of financial aid or haven’t yet received a Financial Aid Award Letter.
  • Shopping Sheet—The U.S. Department of Education designed this tool to simplify the information you receive about costs and financial aid so that you can make informed decisions about which postsecondary institution to attend. It’s available beginning with the 2013-14 award year once you’ve been packaged for financial aid. Compare institutions in terms of grant and scholarship amounts, net costs, graduation rates, loan default rates, median borrowing, and estimated monthly loan payments after graduation.
  • Student Requirements—View any outstanding requirements. You can check the status of documents you’ve submitted to our office and see if any are still outstanding. You’ll be able to view the receipt of faxed documents within 3 business days and the receipt of mailed documents within 1 week.

How We Communicate With You

OSFA uses both email and postal mail addresses to communicate with you regarding your financial aid status. It’s your responsibility to ensure that our office has your correct information at all times and that you read and respond to what’s sent to you.

You can update your address information in the Personal Information section of UI-Integrate Self-Service. Below are the 3 types of addresses included there:

Permanent Address

Your permanent address is defined as where you live when you’re not enrolled at Illinois (usually where your parents live). Your permanent and mailing addresses can be the same. We send all correspondence to your permanent address until the week before the fall semester begins. During fall and spring semesters, from mid-August to early May, we send all correspondence to your mailing address.

Mailing Address

Your mailing address is your local or campus address; it can be the same as your permanent address. We send information to your mailing address from mid-August to the first week of May, unless you have a residence hall address. Many university offices will use the mailing address year-round.

Residence Hall Address

For students living in Illinois residence halls, you also have a residence hall address. Your residence hall address and mailing address will be the same unless you enter a different mailing address. While your residence hall address is active, we’ll send all correspondence to it from mid-August to early May.
