Historically, Florida Prepaid has approved payment for the following residential rooms:
If you elect to live in a more expensive
room, Housing will bill Florida Prepaid at the highest approved room rate and
you will pay the difference between the cost of an approved room and your
assigned room. If you are assigned to a room not fully covered by Florida
Prepaid you will need to pay the difference or submit a
to defer the remaining portion to financial aid by the published Housing
due date. Occasionally, due to high
numbers of students and late registrations a student may be assigned to a
tripled room. In this case, Florida
Prepaid will only pay the cost of the assigned room.
Prepaid discourages using your plan for summer because it is a shorter semester
and you will use a full credit of your Prepaid. However, it can be used by
having the purchaser of the plan write a letter to Florida Prepaid asking them
to approve payment for summer housing. Once approved, UNF Housing will bill
Florida Prepaid for your rent.
the housing payment is due before financial aid pays out, if you have enough
verified financial aid reflected on your account after tuition and fees, you
may wait to pay all or part of your rent until financial aid pays out. A
form must be completed and
approved every semester by the due date for rent that you want to defer against
financial aid. Only the portion of rent
that financial aid will cover can be deferred. The rent balance not covered by
financial aid must be paid by the Housing due date to avoid a late payment fee.
Each year the federal
government randomly selects about a third of all students to verify the
information submitted on their FAFSA. Specific documents are requested to
confirm that the information entered on the FAFSA is accurate. You must submit
these as soon as possible because your financial aid will not pay until this
process is completed. If you are selected for verification, One Stop Student
Services can help you determine the necessary documents to submit. Your housing
will continue to be deferred until mid-term, after which, if your aid does not
pay out because of verification, you may be asked to pay your housing by means other
than financial aid.

need to know how many students will be living with us early enough to prepare
the various facilities. The early payment assures you will have a bed space on
campus. It also allows Housing time to employ and train the necessary personnel
to accommodate the residential population.
