Short-term Financial Assistance Programs

Tuition Installment Program (TIP)

 The University of West Florida provides students with an alternative to paying full tuition at the beginning of each term. Eligible students may apply for the Tuition Installment Program (TIP). TIP allows students the flexibility to pay tuition in two equal installments.  One-half of the total tuition and fees is payable by the close of the drop/add period with the remainder payable by midterm.

The TIP application is only available online through MyUWF and must be submited before the end of the first week of the term. The first installment is due at the time of enrollment in the plan. Each installment must be paid by the appropriate fee payment deadline to avoid assessment of a $100 late payment fee. Students must have a favorable credit rating with the University to be eligible for the Tuition Installment Program. A $15 service charge will be added to all TIPs. Contact the Student Accounts Office at (850) 474-3037 for detailed information.

Short Term Loans

Students in good financial standing with the University are eligible to apply for a Short Term Loan up to $500.  The application is submitted through MyUWF and an electronic promissory note signed.  Short Term Loans along with the service charge are due before the end of the semester in which they were issued; the due date is included on the promissory note.  Contact the Student Accounts Office for more information.
