Financial Aid Guidelines


The 2013-14 Florida SouthWestern State College Guide to Financial Aid is a resource designed to help you through the financial aid and student billing process. The guide explains how to apply for aid, how eligibility is determined, and the requirements for available aid programs. In addition, information concerning the billing and payment process is also included.

As you enter the process, keep the following in mind:

  • Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be processed early enough to assure that you will receive your financial aid on a timely basis and are considered for all aid possible. Applications received late may receive reduced funding due to exhausted funds.
  • Please respond promptly to all requests for additional information or documents.
  • Keep copies of all documents that are related to your aid application and student account.
  • Please monitor your Florida SouthWestern State College e-mail account, as the Office of Student Financial Aid frequently sends e-mail messages that pertain to your student account and financial aid. If you have questions about your financial aid or student account, please feel free to contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.
