What else do I need to know?

  • Spring term aid is awarded on a funds available basis. Don't delay in submitting your FAFSA and Mid-Year Request Form!
  • If you have any outstanding Financial Aid Requirements, you will not receive a spring Financial Aid award. 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 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. Read more about Federal Work Study.
  • 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.
  • Spring FAFSA: The priority deadline to apply for Spring Financial Aid, so that your financial aid award can pend/defer/memo against tuition and fees is November 1. We strongly encourage you to complete the FAFSA by this November 1 deadline.
