Material and Supply Fees

Section 1009.24(14)(i), Florida Statutes authorizes the university Boards of Trustees to establish materials and supplies fees to offset the cost of materials or supplies that are consumed in the course of the student's instructional activities.

Contact your department for inquiries about whether a class is charged a material and supply fee or if you have questions about a specific material and supply fee.

 

Equipment Fees

Section 1009.24(14)(p), Florida Statutes authorizes the university Boards of Trustees to establish fees relating to the use, late return, and loss and damage of facilities and equipment. Equipment fees are typically assessed by major, and they are charged at a flat rate, not by credit hour.
