  • More Information
    • 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).

    • You may see out out-of-state tuition, in addition to the reduced rate program fees charged to your account once you are registered for courses. 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.
