My award has been approved, and I have submitted my receipts to the Office of Student Affairs. However, I still haven't received the money in my bank account.

Please, check your UIC student account. The money gets posted there first, then transferred to your checking account only if there is no residual balance on your student account.

A long time has passed since I submitted my receipts to the Office of Student Affairs, but the money is neither in my bank account nor in my UIC student account.

Unfortunately, the GSC does not have direct access to the University's payroll system. After we approve an award, we have no more control on the process. If really a long time has passed since you submitted your paperwork, please email Crystal Jaimes (cjaime3@uic.edu) of the Office of Student Affairs. She is very kind and knowledgeable, and she will help you.

The GSC awarded me $275, but only $228 appeared on my UIC student account.

Unfortunately, the University collects taxes on travel awards. This is why you may see a lower amount than what you expected to be deposited in your account.
