The Financial Aid Office (FAO) coordinates a comprehensive program of scholarships, grants, part-time employment, and loans available through Federal, State, and University funds.

The financial aid program enables students and parents to reduce or eliminate financial barriers to admission and retention at the University. All awards are dependent upon availability of funds and demonstration of financial need, unless otherwise noted.

An undergraduate or graduate degree-seeking student who has been given temporary non-degree student status by the Office of Admissions is eligible for institutional short term loan assistance only. Students must be degree-seeking in order to receive all other forms of financial assistance.

A student applying for financial aid must follow the procedure outlined below:

  1. Submit “Annual Financial Aid Application” form. The form is available on-line at uwf.edu/finaid or from the Financial Aid Office (FAO), University of West Florida, 11000 University Parkway, Pensacola, Florida 32514.
  2. Complete the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)” which is available on-line at uwf.edu/finaid. The results, called a Student Aid Report (SAR), will be electronically transmitted to the University of West Florida when the student enters “003955” in Step 6 on the FAFSA form.
  3. Submit an application for admission to UWF. No offer of financial aid will be made until the applicant has been accepted for admission to UWF.

All completed eligible applications for financial aid will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Most financial aid programs specify that an applicant register at least half-time, maintain satisfactory academic progress, and show evidence of financial need.

Receipt of a financial aid award does not guarantee financial aid in subsequent years. A student must reapply for financial aid each academic year.
