We recommend that you begin thinking about your financial aid needs and options during the initial admissions process to University of North Florida.
Financial aid is available for those students who qualify. Students should allow up to 4-6 weeks for the financial aid process to be completed. If you have not received anticipated aid by the payment deadline, you are still responsible for paying for your course(s) by the tuition deadline. Please plan accordingly.
To apply for financial aid, you should:
- Go to the Federal Student Aid PIN site and apply for a PIN if you do not have one. You can also visit that link if you need your PIN sent to you again.
- Go to the Federal Student Aid FAFSA site. Choose "Fill out Your FAFSA" in column 2 on the web page. The UNF school code is 009841.
- Complete the FAFSA and sign it electronically with your PIN.
To confirm your financial aid awards you must:
- Accept your award in myWings.
- Log into the myWings portal. On the Students tab, click on My Financial Aid Awards.
- Specify the aid year in the drop down box and click Submit.
- Select the Accept Award Offer tab to see the awards that have been offered to you. Any scholarships or grants are automatically accepted on your behalf. However, you must accept or decline loans and/or work study.
- Click on the drop box next to each award to Accept, Decline or Decide Later. You may accept a partial amount by typing in the box provided. Note: Decisions cannot be changed online once submitted. To make changes to an award after submitting your decision (i.e., changing the amount or accepting a declined loan), you must submit a Loan Action Request Form.
- Click Submit Decision.
- Verify that your awards have been accepted by scrolling down and confirming the status.
- First-time UNF borrowers can complete Entrance Counseling for their particular loan type (such as unsubsidized and Grad PLUS) at studentloans.gov.
- If you are a first-time Federal Direct Loan borrower, using your Federal FAFSA PIN, complete and submit the electronic Master Promissory Note for your particular loan type (such as unsubsidized and Grad PLUS) at studentloans.gov.
Please contact the University of North Florida Office of Student Financial Aid:
What is the difference between dropping a class and withdrawing from a class?
Students drop a class prior to the end of the add/drop period. Dropping a course relieves the student of financial liability for the course. After the add/drop period, the student may withdraw from a course (to avoid a poor grade) but is still liable for the cost of the course.
Disclaimer: Students in these programs are not eligible for the following tuition benefits: Florida State Employee Tuition Waiver, UNF Employee Education Program, or the UNF Tuition Scholarship Program.
