Welcome to the Human Resources' web site. Whether you are a staff member, faculty member, applicant, student, or a member of the public, we welcome your visit and look forward to assisting you. Our web site has recently been revised to provide portals for site visitors based on the type of visitor: job seeker, new hire, employee, or supervisor.

The University of West Florida has contracted with Aetna Resources for Living to provide an Employee Assistance Program for employees and their family members. The Employee Assistance Program helps employees resolve personal and work problems through professional assistance.
Our hearts go out to those impacted by the tragic Orlando shooting on June 12, 2016. Access specific resources prepared in response to this event. Even when tragedies are far away and do not affect us personally, they can be upsetting. If you find yourself needing extra support during this time, please consider contacting the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
For resources and support, you can view coping resources here. Employees may contact Aetna directly by calling their toll-free number 800-272-7252. All services and calls are strictly confidential between the employee and Aetna.
To access both of these resources, use the following:
User name: UWF
√ Please be sure to review your office procedure for closing and securing offices.
√ Remember to bring your leave reports and time sheets up to date prior to your departure.
√ Please print out a copy of the insurance contact information.
√ Be sure to print out a copy of the Emergency Workers' Compensation Report
√ You may want to bookmark the Environmental Health and Safety web page
Those who will be on the critical work team during the closing should confirm their contact information is up to date with their supervisor prior to departure and review the emergency Worker’s Compensation Injury reporting process for that period.
Who is eligible?
This program is for full-time employees in established (non-OPS) positions. Qualifying employees may also assign part or all of their benefit to dependents meeting certain criteria.
What does it cover?
Employees may use the waiver for themselves for up to six credit hours
per semester (graduate or undergraduate). Dependents would be able to waive six credit hours of undergraduate or three hours of graduate level courses. The base tuition for authorized courses may be waived from the Student Account, but there may still be some fees to pay (for example, a Material and Supply Fee or Online Course Fee would still be the student's responsibility). Certain courses may not qualify (see the full details and recent updates on the HR Website for more information).
How to apply:
Employees wishing to use this benefit must apply for it every semester for which they intend to use the waiver. In "MyUWF", the "Employee Tuition Fee Waiver" application will guide eligible employees through the process. For more information, please contact Adrian Rowley at 850-474-2604, Daniela Casta 850-474-2921 or Jeff Comeau at 850-474-2610.
We are committed to continuously improving our web site. If you have questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions, we welcome your feedback.
