Things To Be Aware Of • Aid (Generally, tuition and fees are paid first from any scholarships, grants, or loans received) • Additional fees • Taxes
Non-UW Scholarships • Students need to report all scholarships to the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA), if they were not already reported on their award notice. Forgetting to report all scholarships can cause problems with their financial aid award and in some cases may require them to return some of their financial aid money. • Scholarships will reduce a student’s unmet need first, and then loans and/or work study before any grants or UW scholarships are reduced. • Scholarships checks are sent to: • University of Washington, Scholarships • Box 24967 • Seattle, WA 98124-1967
Parents - Go to www.get.wa.gov • Log in to your GET account • Beginning August 1, inform GET where your student will be attending college and choose your payment option. (Direct Payment or Reimbursement Request) • Select “Account Summary” to determine units available • Select “Using Units” • UW Process • On the first day of the quarter, SFS will pay tuition for students who have requested GET money. SFS cannot pay tuition before the quarter starts. • As long as a student requests GET money before the tuition due date, SFS will pay the student's account on time with no late payment fee. • The GET program can take up to 2 weeks to process payments. SFS will post the payment after the request is approved by the state but before we actually receive the funds.
MILITARY • VA • Student applies for the benefit in the UW VA office in Schmitz Hall, room 520. • VA office certifies the account and requests the money for the student. • SFS pays tuition for the student after we receive the funds. • ROTC • Contact the ROTC unit on campus for your scholarship questions. • Army: 206-543-9010 • Navy: 206-543-0170 • Air Force: 206-543-2360
