Find answers to frequently asked financial aid questions:

    You are still enrolled in classes so your financial aid does not need to change.

    E-mail us at with any questions.  While we cannot accept walk-ins or phone calls during this closure, we are available by e-mail and will respond as fast as we can during the week.  During the campus closure we will be communicating via your Winthrop e-mail so please make sure to check it often.

    As long as you earn an “S” grade you have passed the class and earned the credits.  Those credits can be applied to your state scholarship eligibility (if applicable).  Just remember, S/U does not help or hurt your GPA, so while it will not bring down your GPA if you end up with some “U’s” it also won’t help if you were trying to increase your GPA.

    We are still accepting paperwork.  You can upload documents through Wingspan (select Financial Aid, then Document Upload).  Or you can fax (803)-323-2557 or mail.  If you choose to scan and e-mail to, instead of document upload, we suggest you black out any private information like social security numbers, because e-mail is not considered secure.

    Complete and submit the summer financial aid application on our forms online website. If you want to be considered for financial aid, you must submit an application.

    Reductions are not handled by the Office of Financial Aid.  It is our understanding that students will be receiving an adjustment of fees for room, meal and parking.  See Winthrop’s press release.  Any future questions about this can be directed to Student Financial Services,, the office that handles billing and payments.
