Preview Waiver Request

Waiver Information

In accordance with Florida State Statute, students are charged an orientation fee of $35.

Student waivers are available and granted to eligible students who have demonstrated financial need. They are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Financial need/waiver eligibility is typically demonstrated through a completed FAFSA application showing a zero expected family contribution, Pell Grant Eligibility, or other forms of financial assistance. Since the number of waivers is limited, students who meet the qualifications are not guaranteed a waiver, if all waivers have been awarded.

To request a waiver please use the form below. If you have questions please feel free to email us, or give our office a call at 352-392-8396.
