Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds

If you have been negatively financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, you may qualify for Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF III).

UCF students who are U.S. Citizens, Permanent U.S. Residents or Non-Citizens eligible for federally funded student aid must complete a 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for these emergency funds and should complete the application found below.

International students and/or students who are classified as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS), please complete the application found at this link:

The current HEERF application will remain open until further notice. Application review will begin during the week of August 23, 2021.

For the current round of funding, fall 2021 enrollment is required. Prior COVID-19 impacted semesters of enrollment may be considered at a later date, contingent on available funding.
