Bright Futures Question

<p>When i go to financial awards, it says </p>

<p>PREDICTED FLORIDA MEDALLION SCHOLARSHIP and it gives me like the award amounts and such. Is it supposed to say Predicted though? Do I have to confirm something? What does yours say?</p>


<p>it is predicted until you satisfy the requirements, which means it's predicted until after drop/add and your schedule locks. At that point it will be dispersed.</p>

<p>The "Aid Status" button will tell you if you're missing any paperwork, but you arn't for bright futures.</p>

<p>they assume you take 15 credits. if you are, you get that amount. otherwise its revised to reflect the credits you're taking once they're finalized (after drop/add)</p>

<p>Can you tell me in what place says that you are required to take 15 credits to keep the Medallion? Thanks!</p>

<p>You arn't. I believe the point aforautmn is making is that the amount you get is determined by the amount of credits you're taking. If you take 15 credits, you have more tuition, and get more bright futures.</p>

<p>I don't know if that's actually true, I've never really noticed either way, but it makes sense to me. You're required to take 12 or more. As far as I know only National Merit requires 15.</p>

<p>OK Thanks! i have 13 credits for Fall so I guess I am fine.</p>

<p>Medallion pays $94 per credit hour this year, so as long as you take 12 or more just multiply to get the amount Bright Futures will be paying.</p>

<p>I have Florida Pre-paid and 100% Bright Futures. What's the deal with that?</p>

<p>Do I apply Bright Futures on tuition and get pre-paid back or vice versa?</p>

<p>Financial Aid figures out how much you owe the university (It's higher then either Bright Futures or Florida Pre-Paid, because of fees), figures out how much you get from those 2 based on your credit hours, subtracts the amount you owe from the amount get, then disperses you the remainder.</p>

<p>So, I guess some of each is applied, all the money is posted to your UF account, then they take what's there's and give you the remainder.</p>
