Grants are a form of federal or state aid that does not need to be paid back.
Students can apply for Florida College scholarships and other types of scholarships based on academic merit, extracurricular activities, and leadership involvement.
Loans are designed to help students pay for college and the associated fees, such as tuition, books and supplies, and living expenses.

Make sure to submit your application to Florida College by August 1 of your senior year of high school.
Visit fafsa.gov for more details and to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must submit a FAFSA for each year you attend, it must be completed before you can receive any grants, scholarships, student loans, or federal work-study funding. This may be the most important step in the financial aid process. Submit the FAFSA as soon as your tax returns are available. The sooner, the better! Florida College’s school code is 001482. Your results will be sent to us.
Once we receive your FAFSA results, we will send you an award letter informing you of the amount of aid you are eligible for and how to receive that aid. Instructions and documents needed to process the financial aid listed in your award letter will be provided in accompanying attachments.
Indicate which awards you would like to accept, and sign and return your award letter to the financial aid office. Make sure to include any scholarships/aid that you’ve received from outside sources on your award letter. Signed award letters may be mailed, faxed, or scanned and emailed. Some financial aid requires that an application and documentation be submitted before that aid may be added to your account. Please refer back to your award letter for directions and applications.
You can learn more about scholarships and opportunities from Florida College on the Florida College Scholarships page.
Florida College has made a permanent impact on my life and has shaped the person that I am today. I have grown in various ways, especially spiritually. I am blessed with various opportunities to grow in Him as a student here, whether that be daily Bible classes, placing membership at a local congregation, or attending student-led devotionals and Bible studies.”

There is no deadline for filling out the FAFSA. However, there are some small need-based grants that are first come, first served, so it may be beneficial to submit it earlier rather than later. For the 2024-25 school year, you may begin filling out the FAFSA in December.
Yes. The FAFSA needs to be resubmitted every year. Students will also need to accept their awards by signing and submitting their award letters. Follow the directions in your award letter and attachments to access all of your financial aid.
After you have completed and submitted the FAFSA, you will receive an award letter from Florida College. This letter will detail your awards for the upcoming school year and the directions for accepting your awards.
First, you must submit your FAFSA before the deadline. Adopt is a need-based program, meaning that you qualify based on your FAFSA. You will see it listed on your award letter if you qualify.
The financial aid office attempts to process your financial aid documents in a timely manner to allow you an opportunity to review your aid and accept your awards prior to the beginning of each school year. However, some factors may encourage a quick processing time:
For students who are selected for verification, submit all required verification paperwork and necessary documentation.
Typically, our office begins processing financial aid award packages for the upcoming academic year in mid-November.
The Central Processing System (CPS) randomly selects students who have submitted FAFSAs to undergo the verification process each year. Approximately 30 percent of all applications are chosen for verification. This means that your award letter cannot be finalized until the financial aid office reviews your submitted verification documents. If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you and your parents/spouse (if applicable) will need to submit additional documentation. You will be notified by email (if chosen) and given specific directions about the information you need to provide, which may include your tax return transcripts.
You can request your tax return transcripts by visiting www.irs.gov or using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA.
It depends on all of the aid received before the loan is applied, but generally, no. The government allows a limited amount of funding through the student Stafford Loan. The government allows parents who qualify to cover the final costs through the Parent PLUS Loan.
You will need to notify your state of your plans to attend Florida College so that they know who to contact for billing purposes. It is also helpful to mention that Florida College is a private college. As each prepaid plan is different, you will need to contact your prepaid plan provider if you have questions about how much they will pay. The financial aid office does not have access to this information.
