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.

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 admissions@uwf.edu or (850) 474-2230.

Application Status (MyUWF)

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.

Students can check their UWF account balance through MyUWF.  For any questions or help, please contact Argo Central.  Come on in to Bldg. 18, email argocentral@uwf.edu, or call (850) 474-3387.
