Am I limited to my local MI Works office?
No, you have the option to seek funding at different MI Works offices. Visit www.michiganworks.org to find offices near you.
Do I have to be a full time student?
It depends on what MI Works program you are participating in.
How do I obtain my Cost Estimate?
You will need to first go through a Ferris Financial Aid/Business Operations counselor. Follow these steps to get your cost estimate:
What if I don't see the program I want listed on MyCareer.org?
Ferris requires that a request to add a program comes from a MI Works counselor. You should work directly with your caseworker to request a program to be added.
When should I register for classes?
You should register for classes as soon as your paperwork is submitted to your caseworker for approval.
How do I get books and access my academic information?
Once you are admitted, you should login to your MyFSU account. In your MyFSU you will be able to purchase your Ferris textbooks online and access your academic records.
How do I qualify for special considerations?
If you have had a drop in your income, you could be eligible to have your taxes reviewed by financial aid to see if you can receive additional aid.
What is the process to complete my paperwork?
You will need to be in constant contact with your caseworker to follow their progress. Once Ferris sends MI Works your cost estimate and program plan, we wait on final billing authorization from MI Works.
Are there tutors available?
You can utilize some of the community college tutoring and resource centers.
What if I want to change my program?
If you want to change your program, you should connect with your caseworker first to make sure it will be approved.
