Out of State Tuition Waiver

The C.W. Bill Young Florida State Tuition Waiver Program waives out-of-state fees for an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Armed Forces, United States Reserve Forces, or the National Guard who physically reside within the state of Florida while enrolled at any USF campus. It also waives any Dependent that uses GI Bill benefits during that current term they are requesting the waiver. Dependents need to be physically residing in Florida to receive the waiver.

In Fall 2016, Active Duty members serving in a different state will be able to receive the Out of State Waiver and pay for only in-residence fees.
