Applying for Financial Aid

In order to apply for aid at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry, follow the steps below:

  1. Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Form (FAFSA Form). Applying online is the most expedient way to apply for assistance and includes built in "edits" that help filers avoid common mistakes. You must complete the application and list the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry Title IV Code E00587 in Step 6.
  2. Submit the FAFSA form electronically. Be sure to sign with your Federal Student Aid PIN so your FAFSA will be processed as quickly as possible.
  3. Take advantage of the “IRS Data Retrieval Tool” to collect your tax information. Remember taxes were filed two years ago and that tax return is what you need to access to load information to the FAFSA.
  4. Even though you are considered an “Independent” student, you are encouraged to include your parent tax information to be considered for the Health Professions Loan.
  5. Once you see your confirmation page, you’ll know you’ve successfully submitted your FAFSA. If you provided an e-mail address on your FAFSA, you’ll automatically receive the confirmation page by e-mail. There are a few differences between the e-mailed confirmation and the one you’ll see in the FAFSA before exiting the application, so consider printing or saving your confirmation page before you exit. For example, the e-mailed confirmation won’t include the college graduation, retention, and transfer rates for schools you listed on your FAFSA.

Application cycle opens on October 1. Priority deadline is March 1.
