The application period begins January 1 for the following academic year. Most types of financial aid are nontransferable from one institution to another.

The Financial Aid Office must have an electronic SAR to award need-based financial aid. If you did not authorize UWF to receive the information, you can correct this online at fafsa.gov or by calling the federal student aid processor at (319) 337-5665. They will require your Data Release Number (DRN) located on your SAR and UWF's school code, 003955, to transmit the information to us.
If you are required to submit the verification documents, we will still award your financial aid; however, the award is tentative and subject to change until verification has been completed. No financial aid is disbursed until verification is complete.
