Transfer Students

In order to receive financial aid, you must be fully admitted and enrolled at UNK. Once admitted, you are highly encouraged to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible after October 1, 2018 for the 2019-2020 academic year. If you are transferring for the spring or summer term and have already completed a FAFSA for another institution, you may log into your existing FAFSA and update your application to include UNK's School Code (002551). The information on the FAFSA is needed to calculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) which is used by UNK to determine your financial aid award.



All transfer students who apply for admission to the University of Nebraska at Kearney will be evaluated for certain scholarship eligibility based on information included in the admissions application. We will notify scholarship recipients of their awards shortly after they have been admitted to the University.



Financial aid is a broad term that is used to refer to several types and categories of financial aid.



When applying for financial aid at UNK, there are some important dates to keep in mind.



The University of Nebraska at Kearney is required to establish minimum academic standards that you, as a student, must meet in order to be eligible for or to maintain eligibility for federal and state financial aid, including grants, loans and college work study.



The UNK Office of Financial Aid understands that it is sometimes necessary for you to be co-enrolled at UNK and another College or University. In order to be eligible for financial aid for classes at each institution, students must fill out a co-enrollment form.



Looking at how to pay for college can be stressful. The Office of Financial Aid wants to help you feel comfortable with understanding the costs associated with attending UNK.
