If you have filed a FAFSA with your previous institution:

  1. Make sure The University of Findlay is added to your FAFSA - UF school code: 003045.
  2. Make sure UF has received ALL official transcripts. Merit scholarships are available for transfer students worth up to $14,500! However, we must have all of your official transcripts evaluated by the Registrar to form a cumulative GPA that will determine the amount of your scholarship.
  3. Financial aid must be in order before registering for classes.  

**Aid awards may be reduced late in the awarding year based on University's aid budget and number of awards made.**
