Spring Only Term Financial Aid
Whether you are beginning UNF in the spring or simply have questions regarding financial aid for the spring term, we hope the information below will help you get started.
If you have been admitted to UNF for the spring term and you are a First Time in College Freshman (FTIC) who needs financial aid to assist with tuition and fees for the spring term, you must complete a current academic year FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). See the chart below for guidance on which FAFSA to complete.
If you are a transfer student admitted to spring, or a continuing UNF student taking classes in the spring, and you wish to be evaluated for spring financial aid eligibility, you must have a valid current year FAFSA on file at UNF.
REMEMBER: All students who wish to be evaluated for financial aid for the upcoming fall term and next spring term, must complete the next year's FAFSA. The chart below will help you:

What else do I need to know?
- Spring term financial aid is awarded on a funds available basis. Don't delay in submitting your FAFSA! Current students will be reviewed for financial aid eligibility upon enrollment in spring coursework. Familiarize yourself with these Important Financial Aid Dates.
- Eligibility: Your financial aid eligibility is based on your FAFSA results and the number of credit hours you take during the term.
- Loans: You must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours at one institution to receive student loans. View loan limits. If you do not see your student loan in the Financial Aid Tile, financial aid awards, you may access this funding by submitting a Loan Action Request Form to One-Stop Student Sevices.
- Grants: UNF Institutional Grants are based on financial need and do not need to be repaid. Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are contingent upon available funding. To be eligible for the Osprey Spring Grant, students must enroll in a minimum of six credit hours of spring coursework at UNF.
- Tuition and book components of cost of attendance (COA) will be adjusted based on term enrollment to comply with federal guidelines.
- Concurrent enrollment: Students must take a minimum of six credit hours at one institution to be eligible for student loans. Students attending in-state public institutions should complete the online Transient Student Admissions Application available on the Florida Shines website. Students attending an out-of-state or Florida private institution must submit a paper UNF Concurrent/Transient Enrollment form, Consortium Agreement, and Paid Fee Slip from the Host institution which shows your name, courses enrolled for the term and balance paid 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. For more information, please visit the Financial Aid Consortium Agreement.
