2016-2017 Student Handbook

Section 2 – Financial Aid

The financial aid information provided in the student handbook is an overview of the CF Financial Aid policies and procedures. For complete information, please see the college catalog.

In order to be eligible to receive financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, referred to as FAFSA, each academic year. This can be done online at www.fafsa.ed.gov any time after Oct. 1. The FAFSA should be completed and all required forms submitted by July 1, the college’s priority deadline for the fall term, if you wish to be considered for all possible forms of aid and to be awarded by the time your fees become due. You may be eligible for federal aid, which includes grants, federal work study and student loans. Other types of aid include state aid, institutional aid and scholarships.

The College of Central Florida has more than $700,000 of scholarships available to eligible CF students. In order to be considered for one of these scholarships, a separate application must be completed. This application can be found on the MyCF portal by selecting My Financial Aid and clicking on the scholarship application link.
