Tuition

Be sure to always review the latest tuition and costs associated with the program in which you are enrolled.

Paying Your Bill

All financial obligations are payable before the beginning of the semester or term, and must be satisfactorily handled before students are allowed to attend classes. Fall semester bills will be mailed in mid-June and charges will be due on July 15. Though your bill may reflect your student loan offerings, you must still complete the appropriate steps to process your student loan. If you have not finalized your aid, including processing your loans, prior to June 15, your bill may not accurately reflect your financial awards.

If there is any balance on your account, it must be paid prior to preregistration for the following semester.

Please be advised that once a student is no longer enrolled with Florida Southern College, any unpaid balance left on the student’s account is subject to assignment to a collection agency. All costs and expenses, including collection fees up to 33% of the debt and any attorney’s fees will become the student’s responsibility and will be added to the balance due.

Refund Policy

Student account balances are viewable at any time via the student’s FSC Portal. Refunds of any available credit balance reflected can be requested in writing by the student. All check requests are verified through a review process prior to mailing or pick up.

Federal aid that exceeds a student’s cost of attendance will be refunded within fourteen days of disbursement to the student’s account, in compliance with federal regulations. Students may elect to maintain a credit of their excess federal aid on their student account by completing and signing a Title IV Form. This form will remain in the student’s file throughout their enrollment at FSC.

When a student graduates or withdraws, credit balances are refunded, along with any returnable deposits.

If mailed refund checks are returned undeliverable, unable to forward, or uncashed, a due diligence process is performed. After five years, any unclaimed funds over $25 are sent to the State of Florida’s Unclaimed Funds Dept.

Payments may be made in person, mailed to the Business Office or made through CashNet on the FSC portal.
