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.

If students are experiencing any financial-aid related issues or concerns, please contact the Office for Student Financial Affairs to discuss financial aid options that might be available.

Funds from Aid-a-Gator are intended to be a grant, not a loan, to help our students in need to cover costs related to unanticipated travel, additional technology requirements, or other needs related to an emergency situation. To apply for emergency funding, students should https://www.sfa.ufl.edu/contact-sfa/contact a financial aid adviser. Maximum Aid-a-Gator grants will be $1,000.
