***EMAIL SCAM ALERT ***

Recently students have been receiving emails informing them that they must complete certain financial aid requirements by December 5 in order to ensure their aid pays out by the winter semester payment deadline. These emails ask students to go to a fake non-GVSU website and enter their credentials. They should be ignored and deleted. Do not click on links in these emails and do not respond to the sender. If you have received this email, we strongly encourage you update your password. When accessing myBanner be sure to always to do so directly in your browser from https://www.gvsu.edu/banner rather than by clicking on a link in an email.

Please contact our office when in doubt about the authenticity of any communications you receive regarding your financial aid.
