Notification and Acceptance of Your Award

Award Notifications

The WSU Law School Office of Student Financial Aid sends notifications of outstanding requirements and award offers via WSU email. Activate your WSU email as soon as you receive your AccessID from the Law School Admissions Office. You will not receive an award letter through the U.S. Postal Service.

Emails will direct you to Academica to review your status and accept awards. Academica is the secure portal for information and resources at Wayne State University. Academica requires an AccessID. Your AccessID and temporary password are mailed to you from the Office of Computing & Information Technology (C&IT) upon application to Wayne State University. Assistance accessing Academica is available from C&IT on the Academica home page.
