New high school graduates can get two free fall classes at FSW

New Florida SouthWestern State College students may be eligible to receive two free classes during the Fall 2021 semester through FSW’s “Now. Not Tomorrow.” scholarship.

To be considered for the “Now. Not Tomorrow.” scholarship, students must have graduated from a Florida high school in 2020 or 2021 and should not have earned credits from any other college or university (not counting dual enrollment credits).

The scholarship is part of a college enrollment initiative with the Florida Department of Education and Helios Education Foundation helping to educate families about the financial incentives that are immediately available for students to enroll in college and encourages students to enroll in associate degree programs that prepare them to transfer to a four-year institution or entry into employment.
