VGR Stipend Process

Once the status of the VGR has been confirmed, send an email to 4help@virginia.edu and copy sbj3w@virginia.edu with the following information: full VGR name; VGR SIS ID (7 digit ID) OR Campus ID (9 digit student ID); and term/terms in which you intend to provide support (i.e., Fall 2021, Spring 2022). Once that information has been provided, notify the VGR that they need to set up direct deposit instructions in SIS (https://sfs.virginia.edu/tuition-billing/billing-payment/refunds/direct-deposit). Once these steps have been taken, SFS will manually activate the VGR in the Financial Aid module of SIS so that the department can enter their awards using SAFM as they do for degree-seeking students. Please note that stipends will only be able to be processed in the term in which the VGR is active.
