It is important to find out the priority funding deadline of the schools you are considering transferring to. Completing your FAFSA before the priority funding deadline means that you will be eligible to receive as much aid as possible. A general rule of thumb would be to complete your FAFSA before the end of February each year. Be sure your contact your four year schools financial aid office for their exact priority funding deadline.
