Affording Your Education

Financial Aid (MA Students Only)

Only MA students at the University of Florida qualify for Federal Financial Aid. MA applicants should apply for financial aid as early as possible using FAFSA on the Web. After you complete the FAFSA form, contact UF Student Financial Affairs (SFA) with any questions about financial aid. 

The University of Florida code for the FAFSA form is 001535. Students who use federal financial aid should contact UF Student Financial Affairs (SFA) office with any financial aid-related questions, and should immediately contact the SFA office to work with an official financial aid officer at UF upon matriculation. It is always the student's responsibility to meet any minimum credit requirements or other conditions set forth by their financial aid package.

Scholarships

The UF Center for Arts in Medicine offers partial scholarships to applicants with outstanding academic merit and leadership potential. If you have not already spoken with our admissions coordinator, please please complete the appointment request form to learn more and apply. 

Students may also learn more about other tuition support (such as grants, scholarships, and other loan options) through UF Student Financial Affairs. Some organizations may offer various awards to artists and students pursuing higher education, use your favorite search engine to find these opportunities.

U.S. Veterans

U.S. Veterans and their spouses may qualify for certain types of tuition assistance under federal law. Please visit https://veterans.ufl.edu/ to learn more. We thank you for your service.

Other Options

All UF students, whether pursuing a graduate certificate or a master's, only pay tuition for the number of credit hours registered each semester. As such, you can take a semester off between courses to extend your time in the program and spread your costs. You can also take one course at a time to limit the number of credit hours you pay for each semester.

Please note that UF does not offer payment plans for tuition nor does it extend a line of credit to students.

You might also ask if your employer or organization offers education or professional development reimbursement, funding, or grants.** You can also explore private loans, such as Sallie Mae—a private loan organization that provides funding for graduate studies.***
