FAFSA - What's Next for Applicants

The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships plans to begin notifying entering fall 2024 freshmen of other financial aid offers in early March.  Notifications to continuing and transfer students are scheduled to begin in early June.  Financial aid notifications are generated on a weekly basis for new applicants.  Digital notifications are sent to your personal and UK email addresses. Paper notices for entering freshmen are discontinued after May 1.

If you have filed a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), indicated the University of Kentucky (001989) as a school choice, and been admitted, then we should have your application on file.  To verify, please login to myUK, go to Student Services > Financial Aid.   Check the Received or Waived Documents section under the Required Documents tab for the message “2024-2025 FAFSA Information:  We have received your 2024-2025 FAFSA information from the U.S. Department of Education’s Central Processing Center (CPS).”  If you have filed a FAFSA but the Required Documents tab does not indicate it has been received, please contact us.  Please keep in mind that including your social security number in your student record makes receiving your FAFSA information quicker and easier.

Before assuming that the FAFSA is not right for you, please let us help you understand the FAFSA by breaking down myths versus facts about Federal Student Aid and its process.
