Frequently Aasked Questions
Billing and Financial Aid
For students that submitted their enrollment deposit prior to June 1, a paper copy of the bill was mailed to your home address on June 15. You may view your financial aid awards and fall billing statements, as well as make payments, in your FSC Portal account (login details were sent to students’ emails). Fall bill payments are due on July 15, and a list of payment options and methods can be found here.
All bills will show a standard room charge until housing assignments have been finalized. Once you receive your housing placement, we encourage you to log into the FSC Portal to view an updated copy of your fall statement of charges; your bill will be adjusted accordingly to reflect any credits or additional balance. If you have already made payment, you have a credit due to your room assignment, you can request a check for the amount due from Financial Aid or apply it to a future payment.
If you have outside scholarships, the amount will not show on the bill until the monies have been received. In regards to Prepaid, funds are set in late August. You will see on the bill “anticipated” meaning FSC is aware that you have requested your prepaid funds to be released. To make FSC aware of any outside scholarships, Florida Prepaid, GI Bill or VA benefits, please send a copy of your scholarship emails/letters or your Florida Prepaid or Veteran Benefit statements to our financial aid office at email@example.com and your specific admission counselor.
We can see that the Parent PLUS loan has been applied toward your financial aid award and toward your bill. The total on your financial aid award may be up to a total cost of $53,600 to account for any additional expenses such as books, supplies, transportation, etc. If you would like to reduce the amount of your Parent Plus loan to just cover tuition and housing costs, please contact the financial aid office at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that your PLUS loan amount be reduced.
