This online database represents the most up-to-date information, including application criteria, deadlines, and all relevant contact information. The Scholarship Search Engine features text-based, guided, and advanced searching, depending on how you’d prefer to search. You can subscribe to the RSS feed of any academic unit, and be notified automatically when any information within your college or department changes. You can even save searches or email them to yourself or your friends.

When should I file my FAFSA?

Although you must be accepted for enrollment at UF before you are considered for financial aid, you should apply for aid before being admitted. Complete the FAFSA at Http://www.fafsa.ed.gov You can file a 2017-18 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016. You can file a 2018-19 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2017. UF’s “On-Time” deadline to receive the results of your 2018-19 FAFSA from the federal processor is December 15, 2017. Apply well before December 15, 2017 to ensure that the federal processor has time to analyze and send the results of your 2018-19 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 us to consider you for a financial aid package, you must be a degree-seeking admitted student and have met the “On-Time” deadline.

You can check to see if SFA has received your FAFSA by using the “Aid Status” page on ONE.UFONE.UFONE.UFONE.UFONE.UFONE.UF.
