NEW!! Effective for 2013-2014, the state legislature passed a law that does not require students to complete The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to a BF award disbursement.
In order to receive the Bright Futures Scholarship award, your postsecondary institution selection on the Initial Student Florida Financial Aid Application (FFAA) must be stated as “University of Central Florida”. If you have selected another institution on the FFAA and you are planning to attend UCF, you must update your institution name selection to reflect “UCF”.
To update your postsecondary institution name, you may visit the Florida Department of Education, Office of Student Financial Assistant (OSFA) website at www.floridastudentfinancialaid.org or call 1-888-827-2004.
