    If you have Bright Futures, that will cover most of your tuition, and you can always apply to other scholarships. If you keep your grades up FAU will randomly give you a grant for academic success.

    The dorm and meal plan requirement caused a major financial strain for me. The monthly cost ended up at around $1300 per month, which could theoretically pay for a luxury apartment or even a mortgage on a house. The school does offer scholarships to everyone who qualifies for and attends the Honors program so that helps. You can sign up for a payment plan if you can't pay a lump sum for tuition and fees.

    Excellent education at an affordable tuition (especially if you are a Florida Resident). There are many scholarships opportunities but you need to do your homework and submit your applications to the various scholarships offered (Not to be confused with the scholarships offered upon admission).
