UNF Living Expenses and Other Costs

Tuition is not the only cost of attending college;room and board, books, transportation and fees are also costs it consider when budgeting for college. Let's take a look at what impacts these costs, and what to expect at UNF.

House and Food Costs at UNF

Housing and campus dining at UNF is $9,956 a year. This covers the cost of living in dorms or other on-campus housing, and a dining plan that enables you to eat in the UNF's on-campus cafeterias and dining halls. Students who live off campus but still want to use the dining facilities can opt-in for a meal plan. The cost of a mean plan, or board-only, is $7,238.

Meal-plan costs can depend on how many meals are included in the plan you choose.

Cost of Books at UNF

First-year students are sometimes surprised by how much books and supplies cost–and not in a good way. . The real cost of books depends on the courses you take and the materials required. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.

Annual Fees

The majority of colleges charge some yearly fees to offsets cost associated with maintaining facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs. Full-time undergrads at UNF pay $2,794 in fees every year they are enrolled.

Keep in mind, there could also be other costs associated with participating in special activities, like Greek Life, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Most colleges offer resources so that those who may struggle to participate because of cost can get help covering these costs.

The Cost of Transportation at UNF

The total cost of transportation in college can really vary. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school?. Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus easy to get around on foot? Do you plan to bring a car or will you need to use public transportation? All of these questions can make a big difference in your estimated cost of transportation. At UNF, freshman are allowed to park on campus.

The location of a college or university can impact the amount you'll have to spend just to get around. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, transportation in a city may be expensive, but there may be more trains, busses and low-cost flight options to actually get to school.

University of North Florida Financial Aid

In 2021, 5,185 of the 14,734 undergrads enrolled received financial aid. UNF meets 90% of the demonstrated financial need for undergraduates.

The average financial aid package for a full-time, first-year student is around $10,207 a year. Around 47% of UNF undergrads take out student loans to cover any remaining costs. UNF graduates who have student loans graduate with an average of $19,338 of student loan debt.

The average debt for each loan type varies.

Average Debt By Loan Type
Federal Loans $17,791
State Loans $0
UNF-Specific Loans $0
Private Loans $19,182
Most Common Loans for UNF Students
Federal Loans 46%
Private loans 4%

Most students take out institutional or government loans, because they tend to have lower interest rates and more flexible repayment options than private loans. Loans from the federal government can be subsidized or unsubsidized. Subsidized loans do not accrue interest during school, while unsubsidized loans begin accruing interest at the time the loan is issued. If students do no qualify for enough federal loans to cover the cost of tuition, some take out private loans. Parents can also take out ParentPLUS loans, which are government loans for parents who are helping their children pay for college.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) helps colleges determine how much financial need students and their familes have, so they can offer a financial aid package that meets, or come close to meeting, their need. For more information on UNF financial aid, keep reading, or visit their financial aid website.

Scholarships at UNF

Some students may receive grants and scholarships to help pay for college. Unlike loans, scholarships and grants do not have to be paid back.

In 2021, UNF awarded 3,699 need-based scholarships to students, giving away total of $45.8 million to help students with financial need cover the cost of school. An additional $29.04 million in merit-based scholarship money was awarded to students without demonstrated financial need.

Net Cost of UNF

The net price of college is the actual cost of attending a school for one year. Net cost is calculated by subtracting any scholarships, grants or other aid that does not need to be paid back from the total cost. Student loans are not part of the calculation, because they need to be repaid.

Now that we have a sense of the total estimated costs for UNF students, we can subtract the average financial aid package to find the estimated net cost. Net cost can vary depending on a students’ need and the financial aid award received.

When considering whether a school fits your budget, it is important to consider the estimated net cost, not just the sticker price of tuition. Often, schools with the highest tuition also offer the most generous aid packages, so estimate your net cost before eliminating a school because it does fit your budget.

The average amount of financial aid received by a full-time first year student with demonstrated need at UNF was $10,207 in 2021. By substracting the average financial aid package from the estimated costs, we get a number that may make the cost of UNF seem more manageable.

Estimated Net Cost for Full-Time Students
Net In-state, Off-campus $3,195
Out-of-State, On-Campus $23,169

What will attending UNF really cost you? The answer depends on several factors.

As of 2011, colleges are required to have a net price calculator on their website to help prospective students and their families understand the actual cost of attending that school, based on their financial situation. You can find the UNF's net cost calculator on their website.

UNF Tuition Payment Plans

Some students choose to use payment plans to make the cost of tuition fit more comfortably in their budget.

UNF offers an Installment Payment Plan, which allows students to pay tuition in a series of smaller chunks instead of one lump sum.

UNF Tuition Waivers

Schools sometimes offer tuition waivers to certain groups, to reduce the total cost of attendance. Some colleges offer tuition waivers for employees and their family members, underrepresented students, or military students. Even with a tuition waiver, students are usually responsible for housing, meal plans, and other expenses.

Check the financial aid website for more information on payment plans and tuition waivers.
