What else do I need to know?

  • Fall term aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Don't delay in submitting your FAFSA! We recommend that you file your FAFSA after you’ve completed your taxes each year, aiming to have both completed by February 14.
  • Your financial aid will not be disbursed if you have any outstanding Financial Aid Requirements. View your Financial Aid Requirements on the Students tab of myWings.
  • Eligibility: Your financial aid eligibility is based on your FAFSA results and the number of hours you take during the term. Your financial aid award will assume full-time enrollment for both the Fall and Spring terms.
  • Loans: You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 hours at one school to receive student loans. View loan limits.
  • Work Study: You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 hours at UNF to earn work study funding. View Work Study information.
  • Grants: Enrollment requirements vary between grant programs. View the requirements for your specific grants. Most grants will be prorated based on enrollment hours as follows. Institutional programs will prorate based on hours at UNF only.

  • Concurrent enrollment: Students must take a minimum of 6 hours at one institution. Students attending in-state public institutions should complete the online Transient Student Admissions Application available on the Florida Virtual Campus website. Students attending an out-of-state or Florida private institution must submit a paper UNF Concurrent Enrollment form, Consortium Agreement, and fee slip which shows your name, courses enrolled for the term and balance paid, from the other institution to receive aid at UNF. The Consortium Agreement does not guarantee straight reimbursement, but will ensure that you receive aid for which you are eligible based on total enrollment.
  • Filing FAFSAYour FAFSA should be complete by April 1 to allow financial aid to be awarded to you and pend/defer/memo against your tuition and fee balance due. However, we strongly encourage you to complete the FAFSA no later than February 14 to ensure the best financial aid award possible.
