FAFSA - What's Next for Entering Freshman Applicants

Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships is planning on notifying entering freshmen of other financial aid awards around the first of April.  Freshmen awardees will receive electronic and paper notifications.  Electronic notifications will be sent to your personal and UK email addresses.

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 “2021-2022 FAFSA Information:  We have received your 2021-2022 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 it can take up to a week after you file for your FAFSA to load into our system.
