How to apply for financial aid

Complete the 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on or after October 1, 2022. Apply each year — financial aid is not renewed automatically.



  • List the “University of Florida” and the UF Federal School Code (001535) as a school choice in the “School Selection” section.


  • Sign your FAFSA electronically using your FSA ID.


  • Parents of dependent students can also sign electronically but must request their own FSA ID.


  • Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to automatically import your tax information into your FAFSA when possible. The 2023-24 FAFSA will use 2021 income and tax information for students and parents.


  • Save a copy of the confirmation page after successfully submitting your FAFSA. This page contains your confirmation number and other important information.

Although you must be accepted for enrollment at UF before you are considered for financial aid, you should apply for aid before being admitted.
