Off Campus Study Funding Options
Bright Futures Scholarships
• Programs sponsored by Florida universities
If you're using Bright Futures to pay for off-campus study and have been accepted into a program, the money that ordinarily pays your New College tuition will be refunded directly to you. It is your responsibility to make payment to your program. To receive the largest amount of Bright Futures funding for study abroad, you should enroll in 16 credit hours of studies at your host institution. While New College technically does not have credit hours, financial aid is awarded for your regular term based on New College enrollment of an equivalent 16 credit hours. If you enroll in only 12-credit hours elsewhere while on OCS, your Bright Futures will be reduced accordingly (from the dollars associated with16 credit hours to those associated with 12 credit hours). You will need to meet with Financial Aid (after you've chosen a program) to determine how and if your aid will apply.
