Advice on Financial Aid
Students should apply for FAFSA before the deadline. At UF, financial aid is determined by need according to your household's annual income or any substantial circumstances that would affect your education. Apply early for financial aid so the office has time to look over all of your documents. Also, do not just apply for FAFSA. Search scholarships when you have free time. Instead of going on Facebook for three hours, check out www.fastweb.com, www.scholarships.com, or even College Prowler; these sites have every scholarship you can possibly think of, but it is up to you to apply.
