Undergraduate Students

For an undergraduate, applying for financial aid at the university of Florida begins with the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. File your 2023-24 FAFSA as soon as possible after, but not before, October 1, 2022. File your 2024-25 FAFSA as soon as possible after, but not before, December 2023.


SFA encourages students to apply online using https://studentaid.gov/fafsahttps://studentaid.gov/fafsaStudentAid.gov. Applying online saves time, and it also offers instant editing of your application, which helps to prevent errors.

In order to file a FAFSA online, you’ll also need to apply for an FSA ID using https://studentaid.gov/fsa-id/create-account/launchStudentAid.gov. The federal PIN allows you to access your online FAFSA, sign your FAFSA electronically, or make corrections to your 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 https://studentaid.gov/fafsahttps://studentaid.gov/fafsaStudentAid.gov.

You can file a 2023-24 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2022.  You can file a 2024-25 FAFSA as early as December 2023.

In order for us to consider you for a financial aid package, you must be a degree seeking admitted student.

Do I Qualify?

Students who complete a FAFSA and list UF as a “college of choice” are automatically considered for all aid programs administered by SFA. One or more of the various types of aid (scholarships, grants, loans, and employment) are usually offered, alone or in combination, to eligible students.
