Tuition for this program differs from the standard (Florida resident/non-Florida resident) tuition rates. Refer to the UNF Tuition & Fees page for more detail. Students enrolled in market tuition rate or self-supporting tuition rate programs are not eligible to receive the State Employee Tuition Waiver. Students may also have limited ability to utilize other State approved waivers. For more information, please see our page on University accepted waivers.
