ONE YEAR IN-STATE FLORIDA RESIDENTS pay a MUCH LOWER TUITION. If you are a Florida resident, you can easily establish residency during the online application process to qualify for the lower, in-state tuition rate by providing valid ID numbers for two of the following documents, issued at least 12 months before the first day of your classes:

• Florida Driver’s License or Florida ID
• Florida Vehicle Registration
• Florida Voter’s Registration

If you are a dependent student (you are under 24), you will need to provide documents of a parent or legal guardian (or, provide documents indicating your independence.)

If you do NOT provide two above items in the online application, you will be classified at that time as a non-resident of Florida. You may LATER provide documentation for FLORIDA resident classification for tuition purposes by mail or in-person. All documentation for Florida resident status will be verified. If you need to show more documentation, you will be notified. Visit for complete details on Florida residency for tuition purposes.
