Tuition and Fees
Tuition is set by the State of Florida. Applicants must provide documentation showing 12 consecutive months of Florida residency to be eligible for in-state tuition rates. Tuition for out-of-state students is calculated at a higher rate. Registration, activity, supply and insurance fees are included in the calculation of total program costs.
Method of Payment
Registration fees and tuition fees may be paid by cash, credit card, or local checks. If fees paid by check are refunded, the applicant must wait at least ten (10) days for processing the refund. The College is not permitted to cash personal checks or accept checks under $25. We also accept Florida Prepaid College Plans and Bright Futures Scholarships.
Enrollment and payment of tuition at this institution could affect your federal income tax return, and in some cases, INCREASE your refund. For this to occur, we must have your social security number at the time of registration to enter you into our secure student database.
