Aid for students impacted by government shutdown

Student Affairs Vice President David Parrott
January 25, 2019

Dear University of Florida students,

We understand that during the recent partial government shutdown, our students may have been impacted financially, and we are committed to helping ease your concerns so that you can keep your focus on your studies.

We have been working with students in need on a case-by-case basis, and will continue to do so by deferring the payment of charges and waiving late fees. This temporary relief is for students who are federal employees or who rely on family members who hold federal employment.

Students in need of this deferment can contact Bonita Fletcher at the UF Bursar’s Office, 352-273-0466. Students in need of financial assistance as a result of the shutdown can contact Nolan Simmons at the UF Office of Student Financial Affairs, 352-294-3209.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Parrott
Vice President of Student Affairs

Dr. Zina Evans
Vice President of Enrollment Management
