Financial Aid Resources:

Our department does not offer any scholarships or financial aid for graduate students in the entomology and nematology distance program. However, domestic students may apply for financial aid, State of Florida employees may use Employee Education Plan benefits and some government and private employers will reimburse students for part or all of their tuition costs. Check with your employer’s human resources department to find out if they offer tuition reimbursement benefits.

Students registered in the online learning course sections will pay through UF Financial Services. Students should check the semester payment deadlines on the Registrar’s website immediately after being registered. The University of Florida payment deadline is always the second Friday of each semester, before 3:30 pm (not 5:00 pm) EST.

Purchase of books and course materials is the responsibility of the student. Information about the requirements and recommendations of these materials can be obtained from the instructor and/or course syllabi.

Financial Aid Eligibility:

Master’s degree students are eligible for private and federal loans. Graduate certificate students are not eligible for federal financial aid but may be eligible for private loans. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for federal or private loans. Please contact the Office of Student Financial Affairs about possible private student loan eligibility and any questions.

Students seeking federal student loans must complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible.

Financial aid applicants are responsible for ensuring the timely completion of several steps through FAFSA and UF’s One.UF in order for funds to be disbursed by the tuition due date.

UF’s Federal School Code is 001535.

Veterans Affairs and Military Students

All non-degree, graduate certificate and master’s degree students may be eligible to receive benefits from the G.I. Bill or V.A. Tuition Assistance.

Please contact the Office of Student Veteran Services for more information. Active duty students should also contact the Bursar’s Office.

Additional Costs

There is a $30 application fee for master’s degree and graduate certificate applications. There is no application fee associated with the non-degree seeking option.
