Going back to school to get your college degree isn’t a pipe dream. It’s completely possible. And completely affordable.

Just pick your degree program. Apply. Get accepted. We’ll take it from there. We’ll help you search for financial aid, scholarships, and grants to turn your degree dream into a reality.

Let's go find some money.

Financial aid is out there. Know your options.

Complete Florida Scholarships

We can help you cover tuition, materials, even books. Best part – we award scholarships year-round.  After you have been accepted at one of the Complete Florida partner schools, your personal coach will help you determine the best scholarship for you based on your particular situation.  

Complete Florida Scholarships are subject to change based on funding availability.

Apply for Federal and State Financial Assistance

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). FAFSA is needbased, meaning it is awarded on the basis of a student's need. After you complete the FAFSA, contact the financial aid office at your identified Complete Florida Institution.

Ask your company.

Many companies fully support employees going back to school and provide either full tuition or a portion of tuition to support their employees.

Apply for school scholarships and financial aid.

Your Complete Florida coach will help you find resources at your chosen college or university.
