News and Events

Dear UE Parents,

The University of Evansville has a plan for international students, travel, and possible Ebola. Various offices across campus met recently with city officials about this. The Vanderburgh County Health Department, Mayor’s office, Police Department, EMS, Fire Department, and area hospitals have drafted a response plan in the case of a possible diagnosis in the city. If we have a possible diagnosis, they will take charge of the scene, and we will provide support as appropriate. They have provided us very specific protocols to follow should we have a student who meets the criteria identified by the CDC for possible Ebola. If the virus evolves beyond the two verified cases in Dallas, the CDC will provide us with information as to any changes made to the screening process.

With respect to our international students, appropriate signatures must be obtained from UE on their Visas prior to travel. At this time, we have no indication that any of our international students have plans to travel to the countries identified by the CDC as suspect. We also have no new students joining us for the spring semester from those countries. Should any student, domestic or international, inform us that they plan to travel to the suspect countries over break, we will inform them that the protocols determined by the CDC could change at any time, and they may have difficulty returning to the states. Last, we have no current UE students studying abroad this semester in the suspect countries. If additional countries are identified as suspect, the CDC and Department of Homeland Security will issue protocols for their return.

In this particular situation, the University will follow the directives provided by the governmental agencies charged with protecting individuals in the United States. Our planning meetings have identified processes for the distribution of timely information and for the implementation of appropriate measures in the event of an outbreak.

I hope this puts your mind at ease. We are all praying for containment of this virus, both in the US and around the globe.

Thank you.

Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students

Financial Aid News

Financial Aid and Student Account Information

Billing statements are available on WebAdvisor. A new billing statement will be generated on the first of each month. When viewing your Student Account/bill on WebAdvisor, remember that the “View Bills” link is a snapshot of your account on the day the bill is dated, and does not change between billing dates. To view your current account balance, which reflects activity between billing statements (such as payments you have made or new aid that has been deducted), you should view the link called “Account Summary by Term.” Please contact the UE Office of Student Accounts at (812) 488-2565 if you have questions about your Student Account.

E-mail notification of the bill will be sent to the student’s UE email and other emails designated by the student. Students must grant access for parents to WebAdvisor so that they will be able to view both the student’s financial aid and billing information.

Financial aid that is not final will not appear on the bill. Please view your Financial Aid for 2014-15 on WebAdvisor under the link “FA by Year.” Your WebAdvisor record will indicate the status of each type of aid you have received and indicate if further action is required on your part to finalize the aid. Please return all required documents and/or take the necessary action steps indicated as soon as possible, so that your aid will be applied to your UE Student Account. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (812) 488-2364 if you have questions about finalizing your financial aid.
