- The Reduced Rate Program is only for students with an out-of-state residency status who are enrolled in one of the eligible programs listed above. You are not eligible for the Reduced Rate Program if you are a Florida resident or an Academic Common Market (ACM) student.
- Academic Common Market (ACM) is a residency status. ACM students must be enrolled full-time (9 credits per semester). If you are an ACM student and want to enroll part-time as a Reduced Rate student, you must change your residency status to out-of-state. Please find more information on this process here: http://health.usf.edu/publichealth/academicaffairs/registration/acommon_market.html

The reduced rate program will submit a waiver to cover the out-of-state charges on your account. However, you must pay your expected tuition charges by the stated deadline to avoid late fees and class cancellation.
- Please plan to submit registration request by the posted deadline. Failure to do so will result in late fees and cancellation of classes.
