Conditions for Receiving Aid

• You must be accepted and classified as degree seeking at UCF in an eligible program. Only courses toward your degree requirements count for financial aid purposes.
• To ensure enrollment in sufficient hours for the various financial aid programs, please refer to the Program Eligibility Charts.

• Your financial aid is calculated based on the credit hours in which you are enrolled, and attendance in these courses is mandatory in order to maintain eligibility. Federal awards will be recalculated to include the number of credit hours in which you earned credit and in which your professors confirm that you were in attendance.

• You may not receive aid in excess of your cost of attendance.
• You must not be in default on any federal educational loan or owe repayment on a federal grant at this or any other institution.
• You must provide all information requested for the completion of your file.
• You must notify the Office of Student Financial Assistance of any changes in your housing status.

I-94 classifications.
• You must have a high school diploma or GED certificate.
• A male applicant must be registered with Selective Service, if applicable. Male citizens of the U.S. and male immigrant aliens 18 through 25 years old must be registered with the U.S. Selective Service System to be eligible for Federal financial aid.
• You must maintain UCF's Standards for Satisfactory Academic Progress.
• You must be academically engaged in each course in which you are enrolled. Without verification of this engagement, you will be in jeopardy of not receiving all federal aid. Visit Confirming an Academic Activity for Federal Financial Aid for more information.
