Using the Cost Calculator

The cost calculator is designed to help students and families estimate financial aid options for the University of West Florida.

The average time to complete a full estimate is between 3-5 minutes. Please have a close estimate of your family's income and assets in order to ensure an accurate estimate of your cost of attendance.

The estimates generated by the calculator do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on price of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a given year. The estimates shall not be binding on the Department of Education or the University of West Florida.

U.S. Department of Educations College Financing Plan

This provides students, families, and institutions with information about the College Financing Plan. The College Financing Plan has been previously referred to as the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.

The College Financing Plan is a consumer tool that participating institutions use to notify students about their financial aid package. It is a standardized form that is designed to simplify the information that prospective students receive about costs and financial aid so that they can easily compare institutions and make informed decisions about where to attend school.

Financial Aid

Start With the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in the financial aid process. UWF's FAFSA code is 003955.

All students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA annually by their priority Deadlines in order to maximize consideration for financial aid. Even if you do not anticipate using financial aid, keep in mind that several grants and scholarships require the results of the FAFSA to determine eligibility.

Students using VA education benefits (Chapter 30, 31, 33, 35 or 1606) can also receive financial aid, if approved.
