The financial aid programs at the University of North Florida have been developed to provide financial assistance to current and prospective students.
There are several types of financial aid including subsidized and unsubsidized student loans, graduate scholarships, graduate assistantships, research and teaching assistantships, out-of-state tuition waivers, and matriculation waivers. Graduate students are welcome to apply for any funding for which they feel qualified. For more information please contact One-Stop Student Services at (904) 620-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
By far the most accessible form of funding for graduate students, subsidized and unsubsidized student loans are available from the One-Stop Student Services office. Returning students must reapply for student loans each year. The FAFSA is available January 1 each year.
IMPORTANT : If you do not complete the following process by April 1, there is a strong likelihood that your funding will NOT be available by the beginning of the fall semester. You will be responsible for any and all financial obligations including, but not limited to housing, books, and tuition / fees.
If you receive funding in an amount to cover all of your tuition and fees you shouldn't have any out-of-pocket expenses for tuition and fees that semester. The process is done by computer, so once your award is in the system, the Cashier's Office should be able to process your award and show your fees as being taken care of.
Please note, however, that if your award covers only part of your tuition and fees you will be responsible for any outstanding balance. If you do not pay the outstanding balance the Cashier's Office will place a hold on your records.
If you receive an award in excess of that term's tuition and fees, you will receive a refund check for the excess. These checks are mailed out several weeks after the start of each semester.
