Tuition and Fees
(DUE at Registration; must be paid prior to first class)
*One semester-hour is equal to one fifty-minute class-period meeting each week for at least fifteen weeks.
Registration is the date the semester officially begins. If it becomes necessary for a student to leave school prior to completion of a semester, the date of withdrawal is the date a signed request for withdrawal is received by the Registrar’s Office. REFUND of the unused portion of tuition, fees and other charges will be made, of all amounts which exceed the pro-rata portion of the total charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to the total length of the course. The proration will be determined based on the ratio of the number of days or hours of instruction prior to the student’s withdrawal to the total number of days or hours in the course. (VA students are considered withdrawn as of the last day attended.)
Registration obligates the student for full payment of tuition and semester fees. If a student is unable to pay the tuition in full at the time of registration, he must pay a minimum FIRST PAYMENT during the first week of classes, and may make “deferred payments” to pay the balance over the course of the semester. This choice incurs a “deferred payment fee” of $100 (or 10%, whichever is less). Regular payments on the student’s account will be scheduled at Registration, so that the balance is paid in full prior to the final exam date for the semester.
All registrations must be completed within the first two weeks of any semester. A late registration fee of $20 is incurred if a student registers within this period, but AFTER the scheduled registration dates.
A change of course fee of $30 is incurred if a student changes from one course to another after the first week of classes. A drop fee or add fee (each $20) is charged for each course a student drops or adds after the first week of classes.
Audit Fee – per semester hour ($75)
Auditing is a privilege – the cost is reduced; but the student may only participate in the class at the discretion of the instructor. Notes, quizzes and tests may or may not be provided. No records of attendance nor grades will be kept.
Deferred Payment Fee (each semester, at the option of the student; not to exceed 10%) ($100)
Early/Late Registration Fee ($20)
Course Change Fee (after the first week of classes) ($30)
Drop / Add Fee – each (after the first week of classes) ($20)
Graduation Fee ($100)
This fee includes one diploma/certificate, and other costs associated with graduation. The charge for an additional diploma/certificate is $25. Graduation Fees must be paid one month prior to the graduation date.
First official transcript requested (FREE)
Any additional transcripts requested ($5)
The Florida Bible College of Tampa Bookstore will make the required textbooks available to students at a discount. Textbooks must be paid for in full when purchased, and are required for each class when class begins. The cost of books will vary each semester, depending on the classes attempted. USED textbooks are employed to the fullest extent possible, to reduce the financial burden. A full-time student might expect books to cost from $85 to $150 per semester.
(VA students must pay for books and fees upon registration, or no later than a week after their receipt of their first education stipend payment.)
