SSA Application Question

bowlingdolphinbowlingdolphin Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I'm a Kelley Direct Admit and I got the official acceptance letter in the mail dated December 3rd, but I haven't received any word on a SSA application and there isn't a link in my Onestart account. I have a 30 ACT and 4.55w/3.85uw GPA, my friend who is also a direct admit to Kelley got a 28 ACT and slightly lower GPA, but she had access to the SSA application on her onestart.
I got $5k a year from the Deans Scholarship, but that's all that's showing up for me in onestart. Should I email IU about this? Or wait until another letter comes in the mail? How long did your SSA application letter come after your acceptance letter? I really want to make IU happen but if I can't get any more type of aid from then it's just not going to be possible.Please help!

    Call the Office of Scholarships or the Admissions office. As I understand it based on reading other threads here, the SSA was due on 12/1.

    Yes, call the Office of Scholarships. If you got a scholarship, you should have the link to the application in your Onestart account. The SSA deadline for you is NOT 12/1; according to the website, to be considered for the top $ scholarships you would have to have filed it by 12/1. However, you still have the possibility of a smaller scholarship if you complete the SSA. Last year, my daughter missed the priority date of 12/1 and she still got a small direct admit scholarship.
