Using the UWF Cost Calculator
The UWF 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.
Whether you want to apply your GI Bill benefits to college classes or an on-the-job training program, the GI Bill Comparison Tool will help you make the most of them.
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.
