UF created the “Aid-a-Gator” program as an emergency fund to provide limited assistance to students who experienced a temporary financial hardship due to a hurricane and its aftermath. Undergraduate students and graduate students not on assistantship who experience financial hardship may visit the SFA Aid-a-Gator webpage for additional information.
Check your https://one.uf.edu/ONE.UF portal for any outstanding “To Do” items and “Holds” to make sure you have submitted or completed all requirements necessary to receive your financial aid. You must complete all federal financial aid requirements before any federal funds can be disbursed to you.
Your Financial Aid Disbursement
Your aid will be calculated and disbursed based on your total fall enrollment at the end of Drop/Add. If you add classes after Drop/Add those classes will NOT be used in calculating your eligibility for aid.
Disbursement of aid for students who have completed all federal requirements and are enrolled in 15 credit hours (undergraduates) or 12 credit hours (graduates) will begin the first week of classes.
Florida Bright Futuresscholarships, Pell grants, and Machen Florida Opportunity Scholarships will be disbursed after Drop/Add ends.
If you are paid before the end of Drop/Add based on full-time enrollment and subsequently drop to less than full-time status, your “cost of attendance” will be adjusted to reflect your actual enrollment.
Adjusting your cost of attendance may require a reduction in the amount of financial aid awarded to you or repayment of aid already received. If this is necessary, you will be notified.
If all federal requirements to receive your aid (such as federal verification, entrance counseling, promissory notes, and other requests for information) have not been completed by the end of the term, your aid will be cancelled.
If you have questions concerning your financial aid or need additional information, please contact a financial aid adviser at the https://www.onestop.ufl.eduOneStop or call 352-392-2244 or 833-UF1-STOP.
