Tuition Waiver Notification

Out of State Tuition Waivers

As of July, 2014, the Florida legislature approved two new out-of-state tuition waiver programs that dramatically reduces the costs for veterans and eligible Florida high school graduates.  

Veteran Tuition Waivers

The C. W. Bill 1365 Young Veteran Tuition Waiver Program grants an out-of-state tuition waiver to honorably discharged veterans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, U.S. Reserve Forces, or National Guard, and who physically reside in this state while enrolled at IRSC. The student veteran must provide their DD-214 and one legal tie to the state of Florida from the Florida Statute 1009.21(3)(c)1 list. The waiver applies to 110% of the number of required credit hours of the degree, certificate or PSAV program.

Florida HS Enrollment and Completion Waivers

Florida Statute 1009.26(12)(a) grants an out-of-state fee waiver for students, including, but not limited to, students who are undocumented for federal immigration purposes, who meet the following conditions:
  1. Attended a Florida secondary school for three (3) consecutive years immediately before graduating from high school;
  2. Applied for enrollment within 24 months after Florida high school graduation; and
  3. Submits an official Florida high school transcript as evidence of attendance and graduation.

The waiver applies to 110% of the number of required credit hours of the degree, certificate or PSAV program. Students receiving an out-of-state tuition waiver are not eligible for any state financial aid.
