Financial Aid - Mission Statement

The Office of Student Financial Assistance, a unit within Student Development and Enrollment Services, is dedicated to supporting UCF’s mission and goals through the efficient delivery of student aid.  The Office provides UCF students with a comprehensive offering of financial assistance options to support student success and the attainment of a university degree.


Confirming an Academic Activity for Federal Financial Aid

Federal regulations state that students who receive federal student aid must be academically
engaged in each course in which they are enrolled.   Without verification of this engagement,
students will be in jeopardy of not receiving all of their federal aid.  For this reason, UCF is
requiring that all faculty document all students’ participation.

To assist in this process, students and faculty will use Webcourses@UCF (Canvas) to
confirm participation.  Faculty members have been given the option to either: 1) create an
academic activity through Webcourse; or 2) take attendance. 

Instructions to complete the process:

Students log onto Webcourses@UCF through myUCF Self Service.

  • Enter your UCF Sign-On ID and password

Select the “Assignment” tab and identify if an academic activity is available for you to complete. 
Do this for each of your registered courses. 

Examples of an academic activity are listed below, but are not limited to:

  • physically attending a class where there is an opportunity for to confirm attendance;
  • submitting an academic assignment
  • taking a quiz
  • an interactive tutorial or computer-assisted instruction
  • participating in an online discussion about academic matters; or
  • initiating contact with a faculty member to ask a question about the academic subject
    studied in the course.

If an academic activity is provided, you should complete it during the first week of classes but
no later than August 27 (for classes that begin the week of August 18). 

If an academic activity is NOT provided, your faculty member may have chosen to physically
take attendance instead.

All students must apply or reapply yearly for financial aid.
