National Hispanic Program Requirements:
Recipients of this scholarship program should make note of the following:
The processed results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be received at UCF by June 1 each and every year. To allow time for unforeseen processing delays, it is strongly recommended that students file the FAFSA no later than April 15 so there is ample time for the processed results to be received by UCF. Note: To be given the greatest consideration of other types of financial aid, students should file the FAFSA by February 15 each year to meet our application priority date of December 1st each year.
The first time the FAFSA is filed late, a one-time courtesy reinstatement will be granted to the student upon receipt of the FAFSA and submission of a Scholarship Appeal Form along with a letter of explanation for missing the deadline.
Students submitting the FAFSA late a second time will be cancelled, and will need to submit a Scholarship Appeal, along with a letter explaining the reason/s for missing the deadline, and documentation to support the extenuating circumstances. The appeal will be submitted before the UCF Scholarship Committee for review, and a decision will be rendered. Students will be notified via email of the decision or if additional information is needed.
