Financial Aid


Paying for a college education isn't easy. At the University of West Florida, providing financial aid resources for students is a priority.

Holiday Break

The University will be closed for the holidays starting Friday, December 19th, 2014 at 5:00pm CST and will reopen on Friday, January 2nd, 2015 at 8:00am CST.

New for Fall 2014 - Attendance Confirmation

Financial aid will be disbursed beginning January 12, 2015. In compliance with federal regulations, financial aid can only be disbursed to students who have 'confirmed attendance' during their first week of the classes. Confirmed attendance is conducted by the students' instructors verifying classroom attendance. Students will be able to see if their instructor has confirmed their attendance using the "My Classes" app within MyUWF. Need to learn more about attendance confirmation for Financial aid disbursement?
