If you are out of state beware of Financial Aide Student Accounts. Mr. Byron is lazy, incompetent , and a liar. He does not answer emails and then just sends you to collections before you can find out what you really owe. I left UWF and they are saying I owe Financial aide monies back. I received an out of state waiver email for the term I withdrew from so I should only owe that amount....not the full tuition amount. Mr. Byron also informed me I have to sign on to see my balance they do not issue billing statements...since when do you not receive a bill for amount owed!? I have sent emails to his supervivsor, student advisory and nothing back after 2 months! Next is a lawyer to sue...just so I can get my credit score back up. THis is an awful school due to negative interaction with advisors, financial aide, collections...Don't go!!!

At $635 per 3 credit hours in-state tuition, the quality obtained from the courses is on par if not below the quality that you will get from a community college. You are taught how to take tests, not to be confident with applying the knowledge in the field of work. Most Professors read word for word off their Power Points, the answers to the Exam questions are all obtained from the Power Points, making most students regret having spent the $200 per textbook when you can pass most courses with an A while not having opened the Textbook.

The University of West Florida Administration, although they may have desk plates with their name and Master/Ph.D., they qualifications are on par with the admins in High School.

The student Code of Conduct should be a top priority to read as a student. Although designed to help victims of abuse, if do not care for ethics, the Student Code of Conduct can be easily abused with no punishment even after admitting to lying.

Ample resources are available for those who will to pursue them. Perhaps more on the shoulders of the students in terms of guidance and direction. Many people use UWF as a stepping stone to as big of opportunities this country has to offer. I'm headed to a big company following graduation and know of many other stories in which students went on to bigger schools and big positions. Getting a degree will not make you successful in and of itself and neither will going to a 'good' school. UWF offers much for those who can make it without being spoon fed, the resources ARE there.
