Unit Record Report

The Unit Record provides comprehensive information about Washington students who receive need-based financial aid and about the type and amount of assistance they receive. The Washington Student Achievement Council collects and analyzes this information to better understand who is benefiting from financial aid programs and how well federal, state, institutional, and other aid sources are meeting student need.

The information is used to evaluate state financial aid programs, to support budget requests for state financial aid programs, and to improve service to students. 

Every college and university that participates in the State Need Grant program is required to complete the Unit Record Report at the end of each fiscal year. 

2018-19 Reporting

Participating colleges and universities must report data for this award period at the end of the fiscal year. Institutional staff should refer to the 2018-19 Unit Record Report Manual, which describes changes from 2017-18 and includes an early announcement of certain anticipated revisions for the 2019-20 URR.
