Student Financial Aid and Scholarships

*Applicants will use prior-prior year tax information (ex. 2016 tax information for 18/19 FAFSA)

The University of Kentucky's School Code is 001989



It is important that applicants apply for the FAFSA as soon as it becomes available in October. Some financial aid is awarded based on the initial FAFSA filing date. Using prior-prior year tax information will make the FAFSA process easier for families and students.
To make the FAFSA even easier, use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) that is available through the online FAFSA.

If you plan to attend college from July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019 you can submit the FAFSA from October 1, 2017 - June 30, 2019 using tax information from 2016.

If you plan to attend college from July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020 you can submit the FAFSA from October 1, 2018 - June 30, 2020 using tax information from 2017.
