Tuition & Fee Information

New College of Florida offers eligible students with an alternative to paying the full amount of tuition, fees, housing and meal plans at the beginning of each term. There are four (4) installment plans to choose from and are available for a $15 nonrefundable fee.

What charges can be included?

  • Current term tuition and fees, housing charges, and meal plans will automatically be included in the payment plan. Students cannot choose to exclude certain charges.
  • Charges will be reduced by the amount of available financial aid, private scholarships, private loans, and third party billing arrangements.
  • An account balance of $300 or more is required to be eligible for the payment plan.

When can students enroll in the plan?

  • Students can begin enrolling in the payment plan in July for Fall semester, January for Spring semester.  Enroll online through NewCLEIS by clicking on View and Pay My Bill, and then clicking on Payment Plans in the black menu bar on the left hand side of the screen.
  • To avoid assessment of late fees, students must enroll no later than the fee payment deadline.

Can an additional payer on a student account enroll in a payment plan? Yes an additional payer may enroll in a payment plan once a student has set them up to be an additional payer on their account.

How do students enroll in the plan?

  • Sign in to NewCLEIS
  • Click on View and Pay My Bill
  • Click on Payment Plans
  • Review payment breakdown and due dates of the available plans.
  • Accept the Terms and Conditions.
  • The first payment is required at the time of enrollment and will include the $15 fee.
  • Enrollment and the first payment must be paid prior to the fee payment deadline to avoid a late payment fee.

When are payments due?

  • The first payment is due at the time of enrollment. A one-time $15 enrollment charge is assessed in addition to the first payment.
  • Each plan has their own due dates.  Review these on your student account
  • You may sign up for autopay – never miss a payment due date!

What if a payment is late?

  • Late payments will result in the $100 late payment fee and will be assessed to student accounts.

What happens if financial aid is received after enrolling in the payment plan?

  • Financial aid will be applied to the balance of the student’s outstanding charges. If a balance remains, subsequent required payments will be adjusted.

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:

This form is accessed by clicking the above referenced link. It takes you through the student portal so you’ll need a New College account established. (Instructions for MyNCF App Gateway set up are sent upon admission – find your NetID and initial password in ‘Creation of your NCF account PART 1 & 2’ emails.)

Please contact the Financial Aid office at finaid@ncf.edu or 941-487-5000 with additional questions about this waiver.

There are special circumstances where students may qualify for a tuition exemption or waiver. Learn more here.
