Apply for 2019-20 Financial Aid

Although you must be accepted for enrollment at UF before you are considered for financial aid, you should apply for aid before being admitted. Applying for financial aid at UF begins with the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Complete the FAFSA at https://fafsa.ed.gov/https://fafsa.ed.gov/www.fafsa.gov.

You can file a 2019-20 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2018 . UF’s “On-Time” deadline to receive the results of your 2018-19 FAFSA from the federal processor is December 15, 2018. Apply well before December 15 to ensure that the federal processor has time to analyze and send the results of your FAFSA to our office.

Financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so apply as early as possible to be considered for the most, and best aid. In order for UF Student Financial Affairs to consider you for a financial aid package, you must be a degree-seeking admitted student and have met the “On-Time” deadline. http://www.sfa.ufl.edu/process/how-to-apply-for-aid/http://www.sfa.ufl.edu/process/how-to-apply-for-aid/MORE INFO

Learn How to Create an FSA ID

An FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature on your FAFSA. You must have an FSA ID before you can file a FAFSA. Parents of dependent students will also need their own FSA ID to sign their student’s FAFSA.
