2012/2013 Financial Aid Process
This page gives instruction assuming that you are transferring to UNK for the Spring or Summer term and that you have already completed a FAFSA for another institution. If you have not completed a FAFSA for any school or will begin classes at UNK in the fall semester, go to the New Financial Aid Applicant page.
Transferring FAFSA Data
» Option 1: Transfer FAFSA Data Online
First, you will need UNK's school code (002551). This code will need to be added to your FAFSA on the web information with the Department of Education. You will use your PIN (Personal Identification Number) from the Department of Education to access your application. Once logged into your FAFSA, add UNK's school code. The FAFSA processor will then forward your FAFSA information to UNK. Once UNK receives this information we will use it to award financial aid to you.
» Option 2: Transfer FAFSA Data Using Your SAR
There is another way to have your FAFSA data transferred to UNK using the Student Aid Report (SAR ) that the Department of Education emailed or mailed to you after you initially filed your FAFSA. Once you locate your SAR, call the FAFSA processing center, (800) 433-3243. Request that the UNK school code, 002551, be added to your FAFSA. The operator will ask you to provide the DRN (Data Retrieval Number) listed on your SAR along with your social security number and other identifying information.
If you have difficulties with either option, contact the Office of Financial Aid at UNK.
- Some applications for federal student aid are selected for a process called verification. If your FAFSA is selected for verification, we are required by the Department of Education to collect additional documentation to make sure the FAFSA information is accurate. Those persons whose FAFSA applications are selected for verification will be notified by email. It is important that you watch your email and respond to any requests for information right away. If your FAFSA is selected for verification, UNK will need to complete this process even if your prior school also was required to do so.
