Financial Aid Programs

Online students at the University of Florida are eligible for consideration for a wide range of federal, state and institutional aid as administered by the Office for Student Financial Affairs (SFA), which also administers a limited number of privately funded scholarships. These include:

  • Grants. Considered gift aid — no repayment required — and awarded to students showing the greatest financial need.
  • Scholarships. Considered gift aid, as they do not have to be repaid and do not require recipients to perform services.
  • Student Employment. Considered self-help aid, as students are offered aid in exchange for a service. The Student Employment Office assists enrolled students seeking part-time employment through various job programs.
  • Loans. Considered self-help aid as loans are a form of aid that must be repaid. UF primarily offers student loans through the Federal Direct Loan Program, but there are a number of other loan programs available at UF.
  • Non-SFA Administered Aid. Numerous aid programs are administered by entities outside of SFA including State of Florida aid programs, SFA Resource Center scholarships, academic scholarships and endowed scholarships.

You can find more information about financial aid options as well as how to apply on the Student Financial Affairs website.
