What You Need to Know about the FAFSA at University of Florida College of Dentistry
Please read this information carefully as it pertains to the FAFSA process at the University of Florida College of Dentistry (UFCD) for the 2022-23 academic year.
The 2022-23 FAFSA opened on October 1, 2021. The FAFSA is completed at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. Please click here for a Federal Student Aid infographic that explains the FAFSA process.
Timing on completing a FAFSA is a factor for certain awards, so we strongly recommend you complete your FAFSA as soon as possible.
How to Get Your FAFSA to UF
Your FAFSA will be sent to all schools that you list on your FAFSA. You can list up to 10 schools on the FAFSA. Please be sure to include University of Florida (UF) in your list of schools so that we will receive your information.
UF’s school code is 001535. This code is applicable to all colleges at UF, including UFCD.
Parent Financial Information
The FAFSA itself will not require you to input parent financial information, because all DMD students meet the FAFSA criteria for being independent. However, if you want to be considered for UFCD scholarships and/or subsidized loan programs, you should plan to include your parents’ financial information on your FAFSA.
Putting parent information on your FAFSA does not affect your eligibility for federal Direct Loans whatsoever.
UFCD Scholarships – Parent financial information is required to be on your FAFSA for consideration. Detailed information on the reason for this requirement is available on our Scholarships FAQ website.
Health Professions Loans & Loans for Disadvantaged Students – These subsidized loan programs require parent financial information to be included on your FAFSA. The only exception to this requirement is if both parents are deceased. The regulations for these loans do not allow for any other extenuating or special circumstances.
Important Note about Parent Financial Information
You have the ability to edit your FAFSA after your initial submission and add parent information at a later date.
Please be sure to have parent information added to your FAFSA no later than the scholarship application deadline date, which will be announced on our Scholarships FAQ website. The application typically opens in the mid-late Spring semester annually.
