If you are current student who has completed the FAFSA form for the previous academic year, you should have received a Renewal FAFSA (FAFSA-R) form from the US Department of Education. This form is preprinted with data you reported on the previous year FAFSA. You may apply for the next year by editing and updating the information on the renewal form. However, if you did not receive a FAFSA-R or did not apply for aid for the prior year, you must complete a regular FAFSA.
Each academic year the School of Law reviews Dean's Scholarships and Full-Tuition Scholarship recipients to ensure they have maintained eligibility for these scholarships. To maintain eligibility for these scholarships, students must achieve a required minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) as stated in their original scholarship acceptance letter. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid should you have questions regarding your scholarship retention requirements.
Also as a continuing student you will be considered for awards as rising second and third-year students, by completing the continuing students' scholarship process. Click here for more information.
Florida Academic Scholars (FAS) or Florida Medallion Scholars (FMS)
FAS and FMS recipients who graduate with a baccalaureate degree earned in the 2010-11 academic year or thereafter, in seven or fewer semesters, or the equivalent, may receive funding for ONE semester of graduate study, not to exceed 15 credit hours paid at the undergraduate rate. Additional Information is available on the Florida Bright Futures page of the Florida Student Scholarship & Grant Programs website.
The State of Florida will notify the university of your eligibility. The University's Office of Financial Assistance Services will notify the School of Law Office of Financial Aid, if a student has eligibility for a FAS or FMS award. The award will be part of your financial aid award offer. This will reduce federal loan eligibility, which will assist in decreasing future loan debt.
