Need Financial Aid Help?
Our operations remain open, however out of abundance of caution for the health of our staff, our financial aid counseling services are currently only available by email or call in. If you need financial aid assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (352) 392-1275.
The University of Florida can provide funding to students experiencing unanticipated expenses due to an emergency situation. This financial assistance is intended as a funding bridge for UF students to cover education-related expenses. Seehttp://www.sfa.ufl.edu/aidagator/ Aid-a-Gator information.
Federal CARES Act
The University of Florida is awaiting receipt of our funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The CARES Act established and funded the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) to provide emergency financial aid grants. These critical funds will help eligible UF students cover expenses related to unanticipated travel, additional technology requirements, or other needs related to an emergency situation. See https://www.sfa.ufl.edu/federal-cares-act/Federal Emergency Aid Grant information.
