The Office of Student Financial Aid at the University of Washington Tacoma provides education, guidance, and support to individuals and families in the financial aid process. We administer Federal, State, and Institutional aid programs to students at UW Tacoma. An education at the University of Washington Tacoma is an investment in each student's future success. We are dedicated to helping students and their families finance a high-quality education.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of a student's education records. As a general rule, the UW will not release records to a third party (including a parent) without a student's written consent. To allow staff to discuss the status of your financial aid with your parent(s), spouse or another person, admitted students must complete a release of information form online on their MyUW Account.
Securely submit your verification forms, tax documents and all other financial aid information to our office using the Secure Document Upload Portal (SDUP)
