Financial aid does not "transfer" so it is important to make sure you have followed the appropriate steps to receive financial aid at UW Oshkosh.
- Fall transfer students should complete the FAFSA for the upcoming academic year as early as possible. The priority deadline at UW Oshkosh is March 15.
- Spring transfer students who have already completed the FAFSA for the current academic year, simply need to log back into their FAFSA and add the UW Oshkosh school code (003920) in step three of the FAFSA. This will allow the Federal Processor to forward your information to the UW Oshkosh Financial Aid Office. It is your responsibility to notify your current school that you will not be receiving aid there for the spring semester.
IMPORTANT: Your UW Oshkosh email is the only form of communication used by the Financial Aid Office. Many emails will direct you to Titan Web to complete the financial aid process as well. Therefore, it is very important for you to utilize both campus email and Titan Web.
