If you are a Bright Futures scholarship recipient and you withdraw from one or more classes, our office is required to return the Bright Futures funding you received for that term to the Florida Department of Education. Per state statute, you must repay the Bright Futures funding you received for the withdrawn course(s) to the University. The Florida Department of Education  has given guidance for students to submit an appeal if you are unable to repay for the withdrawal or if you fail to meet grades and hour renewal criteria, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

You should only submit an appeal, if you do not meet Bright Futures renewal.
Appeals can be found at:
