Bright Futures Scholarships
Can I receive both Florida Pre-Paid and Bright Futures?
Yes, and this is how it works..
The University Controller's Office (UCO) administers your Florida Pre-Paid (FPP) account in the Cash Accounting Office, SVC 1038.
- After you register, UCO downloads your information from FPP program;
- Your tuition will be reduced according to your type of plan.
Then, Florida Bright Futures (FBF) funds are received from the State of Florida at the end of the first week of classes each semester. FBF will send funds in the amount of the scholarship you will be receiving to cover tuition.
If you still owe tuition and fees after FPP has been used, your FBF disbursement will be applied to pay the remaining tuition charges before being applied to any additional charges owed to USF and posted to your student account.
- Payment of charges on your student account occurs in the following order:
- Tuition charges, then
- On-Campus Housing, then
- Bookstore charges, then
- Meal Plan (if posted to your student account)
If no other charges are posted to your student account and there is a credit balance, you will receive a refund via e-Deposit if you have subscribed via OASIS.
