- Submit the FAFSA and the CSS/Profile AND
- Complete all other SIS To-Do List items
You should receive your preliminary financial aid award notification by April 15. Contact Student Financial Services (SFS) if you do not receive notification by that date.

I have an outside scholarship. How does that work?
To report a non-UVA scholarship (outside scholarship), complete and submit the Outside Scholarship Self Reporting form found under the correct academic year at the Student Financial Services (SFS) Forms page.
Unless other arrangements are requested in writing by the donor or awarding agency, SFS will credit one-half of the scholarship amount to the fall and one-half to the spring. If you wish to have the entire amount applied to one semester only, please contact the donor so that they may provide documentation of the request to SFS.
