Can I receive both Florida Pre-Paid and Florida Bright Futures?

Visit the official bright futures page

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

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. For example, if you have Florida Academic Scholars, $103 per credit hour will be paid. Florida Medallion Scholars and Gold Seal will pay $77 per credit hour.
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:

  1. Tuition charges, then
  2. On-Campus Housing, then
  3. Meal Plan, and
  4. Bookstore charges, (if posted to your student account via BAPP).
