Residency for Tuition Purposes

“Residency for tuition purposes” can refer to more than simply the state in which you live.  View Residency Guidelines.

Grandparent Waiver

This waiver is considered for out-of-state students with an SAT of 1330 or ACT of 29, with grandparents who meet the Florida resident documentation requirements.  The number of waivers available is limited and eligible recipients will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. Awards are renewable until graduation with continuous full-time enrollment. 

The waiver amount is only applied toward tuition and does not include other fees, nor does it apply toward study-abroad programs. A student with a statutory waiver of out-of-state fees may be considered for additional institutional funding, unless total cost of attendance would be exceeded. 

The total amount of this award is a 100% reduction (waiver) of the out-of-state portion of tuition, valued at approximately $609 per semester hour (approximately $21,924 per year, based on 36 semester hours billed for the academic year). 

In addition to an offer of admission, consideration for the Grandparent Waiver requires this form accompanied by residency documentation:
