Next Steps for Admitted Transfer Students
Congratulations, and welcome to the Argo nation! The steps below will provide you with the information you need to successfully enroll at UWF.
First Steps: Transfer Coursework, Visit Campus, and Financial Aid
View Transfer Coursework
Admitted students can review their Degree Audit the day after they have been offered admission. DegreeWorks, UWF's degree audit system, allows you to see how your transfer or awarded credit has been applied to your selected degree program.
As a prospective transfer student, you are invited to come visit with us. There is no better way to see if UWF is your fit!
Applying for Financial Aid
All students should complete and submit their Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to UWF. You can learn more about UWF's financial aid opportunities at uwf.edu/financialaid and can contact the Financial Aid Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (850) 474-2400.
Go to fafsa.gov to get started. UWF's school code is 003955.

Final Steps: Housing, Transcripts, Residency, and Tuition

Housing is always in high demand, so be sure to complete and submit a housing contract as soon as possible. Housing contracts and housing living options can be found at uwf.edu/housing. For questions, please contact the Housing and Residence Life Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit Final College Transcripts
All students are required to have their final transcript sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as soon as degrees and/or final grades are posted. Final transcripts should be received prior to course registration or at least prior to the start of classes.
If receiving financial aid, your final transcript (final grades and/or degrees awarded) must be received in order to disburse your financial aid.
Verify Your Residency
It is the student's responsibility to ensure they have the correct residency classification upon starting or re-entering UWF by at least the 1st day of classes. Learn more about residency rules, regulations and approved documents. If there are questions, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at email@example.com or (850) 474-2230.
It is important to note that Florida Statute Section 1009.21 declares that all admitted students are non-residents until an independent review provides sufficient information to change the decision permanently. The burden of proof to overturn the original decision remains with the student.
