Communication from our office
Current Macalester students will receive notices of changes to financial aid eligibility through their Macalester email. Students who prefer to have a paper notification sent via campus mail may send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to email, paper notifications will be sent to the student's permanent address during off-campus study semesters.
Students who wish to automatically forward email from our office to a third party are encouraged to set up an email filter. We have instructions on how to set up a filter at: macalester.edu/financialaid/faq/filter/.
