Financial Aid

Financial Aid: Adopt

The Adopt Program is about people helping people. Adopt matches deserving students with donors who are interested in helping students attend Florida College. The students selected are informed of their “adoption” and keep the donor informed of their progress during the year.

Application Deadlines

There are multiple deadlines, but the earlier you apply the more money is available.

Who Adopt is For?

The Florida College Adopt Program Application

Adopt is for students who have done everything they can to find aid through the normal channels of scholarships, grants, loans and work contracts but who still find themselves short of the money they need to attend Florida College.

Adopt is based on need. Students must have good character and a low EFC (Expected Family Contribution) on the FAFSA.
