Out-of-State Waivers for Students with Three Years of Attendance and Graduation from a Florida High School – FS 1009.26(12a)

If you are a student who does not qualify for Florida residency for tuition purposes, but you are graduating from a Florida high school, you might be eligible for an out-of-state tuition waiver to reduce your tuition and fees to Florida rates.

If you have attended a Florida high school for at least three consecutive years immediately before graduating from a Florida high school, you must apply for enrollment within 24 months after high school graduation, and submit an official Florida high school transcript as evidence of attendance and graduation.

Please note that you cannot be eligible for Florida grant and scholarship programs with this status. Through this waiver, you retain out-of-state residency and are charged Florida resident rates for tuition and fees for up to 110 percent of your required hours to degree
