Excess Credit Hour Surcharge
Florida legislation requires that the university apply a surcharge on all credit hours taken in excess
- If you started college Fall 2009 - Buy one credit hour (after 144 attempts) pay 50% more!
- If you started college Fall 2011 - Buy one credit hour (after 138 attempts) pay 100% more!
- If you started college Fall 2012 and after - Buy one credit hour (after 132 attempts) pay 100% more!
This is based on baccalaureate degree programs requiring 120 credit hours for graduation. For example, your tuition per credit hour will double once you attempt more than 138 credit hours, if you started college in fall 2011. This includes failed, withdrawn and repeated classes.
