How to Apply
The financial aid process starts by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition to applying for the Pell Grant, federal student loans and work-study, the State of Alaska and many scholarship agencies use your FAFSA information to process award offers.
You will need the following to complete your FAFSA:
1. Your Federal Student Aid PIN to e-file the application
2. The UAA School Code: 011462
3. Your tax returns for the calendar year PRIOR to the academic year for which you are planning to attend school (ex. 2012 returns are required for 2013/2014 school year).
Tip: Use the IRS data retrieval tool from within the FAFSA application to import your tax information directly into the FAFSA application. This is the best way to provide tax information.
If you are a dependent student you will also need your parent’s tax information and they must apply for a PIN to sign the FAFSA along with you (the FAFSA will determine if you are considered dependent or independent according to federal guidelines).
Note: If you are planning to use your Alaska Performance Scholarship at Kodiak College, you must submit a FAFSA by June 30th prior to the school year you plan to attend, and list UAA’s school code first on your application.
Financial aid awards for Kodiak College students are processed by the UAA Office of Student Financial Assistance.
You can monitor your financial aid award status on your UAOnline account (call 1-877-633-3888 if you need help with your log-in information). Be sure to monitor this status often as the financial aid office may request further documentation before offering you an award.
Documents requested by UAA may be turned in to Student Services.
