Can I Afford It?

Once you’ve made the decision to splash, we promise to help you find the best ways to pay for your college experience.

Last year, we awarded nearly $100 million to future UWF splashers, just like you.  In fact, more than 65 percent of Argonauts receive financial help.  You could be one of them.

"UWF believes everyone deserves the chance to make a splash.  We can help you find ways to pay for college and connect you with resources.  Our website is a great tool with valuable information.  Talk to us, we look forward to working with you." - Shana Gore, Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships
