Some financial aid forms are available for students to complete and sign electronically. The following information will help in the use of the Dynamic Forms service to securely complete and electronically sign financial aid forms.
Students must have a Knights email address to access Dynamic Forms. First, please create your Knights email account. It may take up to 24 hours after creating your Knights email account for you to be able to access your Dynamic Forms.
UCF students will access Dynamic Forms through their To-Do List on myUCF. After using the link within the To-Do List students will be presented with the UCF Federated Login for Dynamic Form, using the UCF NID and NID password students will log in to the specific Dynamic Form. Any documents (tax transcripts, W2s, etc.) uploaded to Dynamic Forms must be in PDF format.
Students should NOT use the general Dynamic Forms login page [https://dynamicforms.ngwebsolutions.com…], as this will result in an Invalid ID or password message:
Students Employed On-Campus, including FWS and OPS Employment
Students employed by UCF may have a UCF business email account (@ucf.edu). If so, that will be the email address associated with Dynamic Forms. The email address associated with Dynamic Forms will be listed at the beginning of the form along with the first name, last name and UCFID. All communications from the Dynamic Forms system will be sent to the account pre-filled in the form. Students can confirm their business email address on the personal information section of your myUCF account.
To access your business account visit webmail.ucf.edu. Sign in with your NID and Password.
Submitting Dynamic Forms
Financial aid forms will automatically be submitted to UCF Office of Student Financial Assistance once completed and all electronic signatures have been successfully provided. If a student chooses to not electronically sign the form, the form must be printed and sent along with any other documentation to the financial aid office for processing.
Submitted Dynamic Forms cannot be accessed again for the purpose of making corrections and/or adjustments. All support documentation uploaded must be in PDF format. To convert documents to PDF format students may use options such as Create PDF Files with Your Phone. The maximum PDF file size accepted is 3MB (3000KB). To reduce the file size of the PDF attachments for Dynamic Forms try using www.adobe.com/acrobat/online/compress-pdf.html. Dynamic Forms and/or supporting documents cannot be submitted as email attachments or faxed.
Rejected Forms: If an error has been made to a submitted dynamic form, it will be rejected by the Office of Student Financial Assistance and a form rejected email will be sent. The student or parent must take action on a rejected form, based on the information within the rejected form email. The form will need to be electronically signed again by the user. Forms and/or support documents should not be submitted as email attachments. Email attachments are not accepted or opened.
Dynamic Forms Dashboard
To view forms that have been completed or are pending completion students should use the Dynamic Forms Dashboard. Students will use their NID and NID password to access the Dynamic Forms Dashboard. Parents should login to Dynamic Forms at dynamicforms.ngwebsolutions.com, using their Dynamic Forms username and password.
Pending /Draft Forms: After logging into the Dynamic Forms Dashboard, click on “Pending / Draft Forms” button. The first box listed represents forms the student has outstanding in an incomplete or draft status. The second box represents incomplete or draft documents for a parent or co-signer to complete.
Forms History: After logging into the Dynamic Forms Dashboard, click on the “Forms History” link. A new page will appear listing all completed documents for that account, sorted by date with the most recently completed at the top. Students will be able to also view the completed form by clicking on the link provided.
To help protect user information, the Dynamic Forms system will time out after a period of inactivity. Users will notice a timer count in the upper right-hand corner of most Dynamic Forms. It shows the remaining time to complete a form. Users should save their progress if the remaining time is about to expire. Any unsaved information entered at timer’s expiration will be lost.
If your login to dynamic forms has timed out you will end up on the general Dynamic Forms login page, NOT the UCF Dynamic Forms login page, and your UCF log-in credentials will not work. If you attempt to login to this general website it will give you the Invalid ID or Password message below.
Uploading Required Documentation
All support documentation uploaded must be in PDF format.
To convert documents to PDF format students may use options such as Create PDF Files with Your Phone. The maximum PDF file size accepted is 3MB (3000KB). To reduce the file size of the PDF attachments for Dynamic Forms try using www.adobe.com/acrobat/online/compress-pdf.html.
Students and parents, required to submit other documentation (i.e. tax return transcripts or W-2’s) along with the form, will be able to upload these documents (PDF format only) directly in to the Dynamic Form online. Dynamic Forms and/or supporting documents cannot be submitted as email attachments or faxed.
Parent Information and Signatures
If a form requires parental information and/or signatures, the student will be asked to supply a parent email address. The parent will be sent a link to complete the parent section of the form and to sign the form electronically. The first time Dynamic Forms is accessed, the parent will need to create an account. The same email address cannot be used for both the student and the parent. Dynamic Forms require unique email accounts for each participant of a form.
After the parent electronically signs the form it will be sent automatically to our office for processing.

The financial aid forms for 2019-2020 are not available on the financial aid website. How do I obtain the financial aid forms?
Log onto myUCF and review your To-Do List. You will only be able to access forms that the financial aid office is requesting you to complete and submit. Click on the requested form and you will be allowed to complete the online form.
I am trying to complete a Dependent form – why am I being asked to supply contact information for my parent and where is the form?
A dependent form requires information from both the student and the parent(s). The student and parent must complete their respective sections of the form and each sign electronically. You will need to enter the contact information for the parent that will complete and sign the form. The parent completing the form must be the parent who also signed the FAFSA for that aid year.
Why do I have to provide my parent(s) contact information?
Parental information is required for dependent students. Your parent(s) will receive an email with directions that will allow them to complete and electronically sign their part of the dependent form. They will need to create a username and password to complete the form.
My form was rejected, what do I do now?
Submitted dynamic forms that are incomplete or missing information (tax documentation or signature on tax documents) will be rejected by the Office of Student Financial Assistance and a “form rejected” email will be sent. The student or parent must take action on the rejected form.
The rejected form email outlines the next steps that must be taken by the student or parent. The rejected form will need to be electronically signed again by each user (student and/or parent if applicable).
Dynamic Forms and/or supporting documents cannot be submitted as email attachments or faxed.
How do I make corrections and/or adjustments to a form that has been electronically signed?
After a user signs and submits a Dynamic Form, it cannot be accessed again for the purpose of making corrections and/or adjustments. If the submitted dynamic form is incomplete, it will be rejected by the Office of Student Financial Assistance and a form rejected email will be sent. The student or parent must take action on a rejected form, based on the information within the rejected form email. The form will need to be electronically signed again by the user(s).
After I complete my form, do I log out?
If you have completed your required document(s), please be sure to log out of the system.
I completed a form but it isn’t listed in my forms history. Why?
If you do not complete a form in its entirety (through the signature stage) it will not be included in forms history, it will be found within the “pending Forms” section of the Dynamic Forms Dashboard. One way to verify you have completed the form is to look for the automated message after a form is successfully completed that will appear.
I completed the financial aid items on my To-Do List, why is it still listed as initiated?
Online form submission does not automatically update your To-Do List. After your online form is submitted and reviewed by the financial aid office, your To-Do List will be updated and the item removed. Please allow 5 – 7 business days for the items to be removed from your To-Do List.
