Students transferring to UGA in a spring or summer term and their previous institution awarded them federal student aid for the spring and/or summer need to contact their previous school’s financial aid office and request they cancel your spring and/or summer award.  We will not be able to award any federal student aid at UGA for the spring and/or summer until all previously awarded FSA for spring and/or summer has been canceled by the previous school.
