The Monthly Memo

March, 2004

WHEG UW PROCESSING - IMPORTANT!

The 03-04 WHEG appropriation does not provide enough funding to meet our committed awards.  Rather than cut or revoke awards, we will over-spend the appropriation this year and institutions will be reimbursed at the start of the next fiscal year. University System has given approval for financial aid offices to run deficit balances for their committed awards and in early July HEAB will reimburse those deficit amounts. Please feel free to call Connie with questions or concerns at (608) 264-6181, or by email at connie.hutchison@heab.state.wi.us.

Vouchers are normally processed on Tuesday and Friday nights. If funds are available on Tuesday night, UW voucher requests will be processed normally as 03-04 expenditures. If funds are not available, the voucher requests will be processed as 04-05 expenditures and no checks will be mailed from HEAB at this time, but will be reimbursed in July as stated above. 

REFUNDS - IMPORTANT

Spending is very tight. Please be sure to process refunds as soon as possible.
To assure quick and accurate processing of refunds, please make sure to include student name, social security number, disbursement code, school code, voucher number or academic year and semester and amount of refunds using the guidelines outlined in Chapter 10 of the Policies and Procedures Manual found on our website www.heab.state.wi.us.

PROCESSING INFORMATION

Notification lists for March will be March 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd.  We will not be producing a notification list on March 30th.  

Because of anticipated budget cuts, in April we will be vouchering only once a week, which will be on Fridays.
