The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships coordinates the awarding of scholarships, grants, work-study and loans through Federal, State and Institutional funds. We strive to provide access to higher education by reducing financial barriers so our students are able to achieve their goals.
To apply for financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov and enter UWF’s school of 003955. Once the FAFSA is processed, the results will be transmitted electronically to UWF and the results will also be e-mailed to the student. We encourage students closely review the SAR. Students must reapply for financial aid each academic year by submitting a new FAFSA. More information on the application process is available here (http://uwf.edu/offices/financial-aid/applying-for-aid/steps-to-apply/)
Your UWF aid package will be made up of a combination of awards depending on your academic standing, grade level, residency status, dependency status and financial need. Awards including scholarships, grants, waivers, loans and work study opportunities are all part of what makes a UWF education affordable.
Scholarships and grants are non-repayable aid, while a loan is borrowed money that must be repaid, often with interest. We offer employment opportunities in the form of work study for undergraduate students and assistantships for graduate students. The UWF Human Resources Office also offers student employment. Please visit jobs.uwf.edu for a complete list of Student OPS job openings.
