Career Fair 

Are you preparing for the upcoming GVSU Career and Internship Fair, but not quite sure where to start?
The Career Center will be hosting a drop-in event to help you refine your resume, formulate your elevator pitch, and learn the proper way to follow up after the fair to build meaningful employer connections.
Drop-in hours will be held on October 5th on the Allendale campus in 200 STU from 12:00 pm- 2:00 pm and on October 6th on the Pew campus in DeVos Center 145C from 12:00 pm- 2:00 pm

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2023-2024 academic year will open on October 1, 2022. We encourage using the IRS data retrieval tool to pull 2021 tax information, to make the process even easier.  

Also, our online scholarship database, myScholarships offers GVSU specific and external opportunities for new and current students based on academic merit, financial need, major and more. The majority of deadlines fall between February 15 and March 1. Students can begin to submit applications for the 2023-2024 academic year on November 1, 2022, by visiting the GVSU My Scholarships website. Students with questions should contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships by emailing scholarships@gvsu.edu.

We understand that unusual circumstances exist that may warrant reconsideration of financial aid eligibility. These special circumstances may be changes that have occurred in your family or student circumstances since the FAFSA was filed or unusual family circumstances not accounted for on the FAFSA. Please visit www.gvsu.edu/financialaid/specialcirc to learn how to let us know about these changes.
