Anyone receive financial aid award notice yet?

I read on another thread here on CC that ASU financial aid starts sending award notices out in October. Has anyone received their financial aid award package yet on ASURITE?

    Well, just to respond to my own post ...

    After some more reading here on CC, I did click through to some info on MyASU. Way down at the bottom of the Financial Aid and Scholarships box, it says "Renewable Aid Program Status: More Information." When you click on there, it gives you the New American University Scholarship the student qualified for based on self-reported grades and the SAT/ACT score on file at ASU.

    However, this amount was lower than I expected, because my son should qualify for National Scholars Award. So, I called ASU and they told me that they have not yet updated those awards for National Scholars. They said not to worry about it unless it doesn't get updated by the time the full financial aid package comes out, which they said will be in November this year.

    My son doesn't even have the More Information tab under the Renewable Aid Program Status. It just says Not Applicable. Based on the calculator (self reported grades and SAT), he was well within the range of the Provost's Award. I guess he will wait until November and see what happens. He should have some guaranteed funds through the Raise Me program, but that was considerably less than the ASU New American awards.

    @ChihuahuaMom thanks for asking and answering your own question! I did find my D's New American scholarship amount listed that I had planned on. Whew. Do you know if ASU sends out an actual letter with scholarship amount awarded? D received a scholarship letter from Texas Tech. But they also sent a HUGE acceptance letter in a large red cardboard mailer, LOL. Only in Texas.

    It looks like my son's information was updated this afternoon in The Renewable Aid Program status, and he received the merit aid he was hoping for. They must be actively in the process of assigning merit aid.

    Thanks for this tip about how to find the award amount. My D got the President’s Award which is what we expected from the online estimator.

    @jellybean5 I remember reading on CC that ASU had sent out actual, snail mail letters with New American University Scholarship award amounts prior to the full financial aid award packages in years past. If anyone does receive a letter like this, please let the rest of us know.

    My son did receive a letter in the mail today from ASU congratulating him on his New American University scholarship award, but this has still not been updated to National Scholar.
