 Active Duty Out of State Waiver 


  • Non-Florida resident members of the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty stationed outside of Florida are eligible to receive a waiver of all non-resident tuition and fees.  To apply for the waiver, log into your MyUWF account and search for “active duty out of state waiver” (you must be logged into your MyUWF account to access the form).  The online dynamic form is brief and requires that you upload a copy of your current orders and most recent LES.  Waiver approval usually takes one to two working days.  This is a one-time process provided that you are continuously enrolled. 

NOTE:  The University only requires the top line of your LES and Block 44 (state abbreviation where your state taxes are paid).  Please redact all other information prior to uploading.

  • Non-Florida resident members of the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty stationed in Florida and their spouse and dependents do not require out-of-state waivers because they are eligible to receive Temporary Residency for tuition status.  To receive Temporary Residence, declare that you are military on orders on your UWF admission application, and upload a copy of your current orders to support the request. 
  • Public Health Service (PHS) Officers detailed for duty with the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard) are considered to be entitled to the same rights, benefits, privileges and immunities  as an active duty Army officer, and are eligible for either temporary residency or the active duty out of state waiver.  PHS officers not assigned to units of the Armed Forces may be eligible for the 90% (graduate) online tuition waiver.
