UCF is making additional federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) dollars available to eligible students.

Almost all students enrolled during any semester impacted by COVID-19 — since Spring 2020 — will be eligible to apply through one of the two applications below. Students who are enrolled in Fall 2021 will be given priority; awards for other students will be subject to the availability of funding. Students can apply for funding whether or not they have received funding in previous distributions.

Each eligible student can apply for up to $2,000 in aid to support costs suffered due to the coronavirus. Those can include cost of attendance — such as tuition, fees, housing, books and other supplies — as well as food, healthcare or childcare needs.

UCF students who are U.S. citizens, permanent U.S. residents or eligible non-citizens should complete this application.

International students and/or students who are classified as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) should complete this application.

Applications will remain open until further notice, and they will be considered as they are received. UCF plans to begin distributing the money by early September, and you will have the option to apply it directly to your tuition and fee balances.
