Outside Scholarship Checks
If you receive a scholarship that is not awarded by Broward College, please take your scholarship check to the Cashier's Office on the North, South or Central campus. This applies to ALL checks, including those you may receive as result of a scholarship award posted to your account. Do not send any checks to the Financial Aid Office, as the Financial Aid Office does not process checks. Doing so will cause a delay in posting your scholarship award. You must be currently enrolled at Broward College or the Cashier's Office will not accept the check. Please refer to the 'How to Pay' tab on the Cashier's webpage for more information on this process.
*You may also be eligible for external scholarships.
*Please Note: Broward College is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to determine the tax status of all students receiving payments from the college. Student payments may include financial aid grants, scholarships, prize monies and/or rent monies. Upon determination of tax status, the college may be required to report and/or withhold federal income tax from a payment.
