2017-2018 Financial Aid Forms
Complete and Submit On-line:
- FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
UWF's Financial Aid Forms:
Verification - The UWF Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships notifies students via e-mail if their FAFSA has been selected for verification. Your FAFSA results, called a Student Aid Report, will also tell you if you are required to submit verification documents. If selected, students (and parents, if applicable) must submit a verification form and in some cases tax return transcripts.
Financial Aid awards will not be processed until all outstanding documents have been received and reviewed.
Students selected for verification are assigned a verification group by the US Department of Education. Verification groups are V1, V4, V5. When we notify you of the verification requirement, we will provide the link to the applicable verification form. You can also find your verification group and links to all required documents by logging into MyUWF and selecting "Financial Aid."
Beginning with the 2017-2018 award year, if you were selected for a process called verification and you, spouse (if applicable) and/or your parent(s) did not file taxes for the 2015 tax year, the Department of Education requires each nontax filer to submit an IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter to your educational institution. For detailed instructions on how to obtain an IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter, click here.
