Bookstore Deferment


Students who qualify for the Bookstore Deferment Program have the option of using excess financial aid to purchase textbooks at the UWF Bookstore prior to their aid being disbursed. Eligible students will receive an email through their UWF email address.

This deferment is not an additional award but an estimated amount based upon the student’s financial aid award less unpaid charges on his/her account. The maximum deferment amount is $800.00. In order to qualify for the deferment, students must be enrolled in the minimum number of hours required for their financial aid award.

By signing the bookstore receipt, students are authorizing the University of West Florida to deduct the University Bookstore charges from their financial aid awards. In the event their financial aid status changes, students are responsible for any purchases made under this program.

Participation in this program is voluntary. If you do not wish to participate, no further action is required, and there will be no deduction to your financial aid.
