Ways to Help You Afford College

Apply for federal student aid for help paying for college. Complete the FAFSA today using FSW school code 001477 and check your FAFSA Status regularly with our Financial Aid Office as additional documents may be required. Remember: the application may take 6 - 8 weeks to process.

Once you are admitted to FSW, apply to be considered for our scholarships! FAFSA required. Have Bright Futures? You can find more information about using Bright Futures at FSW on our scholarships page.

If you are a Florida resident, check to see if you qualify for in-state tuition! This will significantly lower your tuition costs.

Using Florida Prepaid or other 3rd party payments? Check our Cashier's page for more information and follow the steps below to ensure your tuition bill is covered.

Check Your Bill/Account

After you register for classes, you should check your bill as soon as it becomes available in the FSW Student Portal so you have time to ask questions about your aid and/or arrange to pay the bill before the tuition payment deadline for the term.

Checking Your Account

Follow these steps or check out the video on viewing your account details and paying online.

  1. Login to the FSW Experience Portal
  2. Find the "Student Financials" card
  3. Click the "Pay Now" or "View Account" button to find more information and pay

Check to make sure you do not have a balance when your bill becomes available and on the tuition payment deadline even if you think your financial aid, scholarships, Florida Prepaid, or other funding cover your full tuition balance.

If you owe a balance and do not pay before the payment deadline for the semester, you may be dropped from all of your classes including classes you have already paid for!
