If you have not reached the maximum financial aid eligibility for the fall semester you MIGHT be eligible to receive aid for the Fall Mini (Please see below if you are unsure if you qualify for additional aid).
Financial Aid for Fall Mini - Semester
In general there will be no adjustments to students’ cost of attendance (COA) for the Fall Mini Session unless it changes the level of enrollment.
Less than Half time (1-5 credits undergrad) to Half time (6-8 credits undergrad)
Half time (6-8 credits undergrad) to Three Quarter time (9-11 credits undergrad)
Three Quarter time (9-11 credits undergrad) to Full time (12 or more credits undergrad)
Students with aid based on level of enrollment will have an adjustment made to the COA and the financial aid award. The financial aid award that MAY be adjusted based on the availability of funds are:
Pell Grant
FSAG

Reinstatement of Upper Division Grant if the enrollment changes from less than Full time to Full time
Bright Futures recipients multiply the number of credits by $77 for the Florida Medallion and $103 for Florida Academic Scholars,then pay the difference.
