    Has anybody here ever taken online classes at the Univ. of Central Florida? I was just looking over the tuition rates...the undergraduate per credit-hour fee for non-residents is $647.56 !?:eek: As opposed to the Florida resident fee which is only $131.58.

    Is this correct or is there a special rate across the board for their online programs?

    Seems a bit high for online programs. See here for tuition for the University of Central Florida's online Master of Nonprofit Management. Which program were you interested in?

    While I don't know about UCF, I do know that Florida public schools such as UWF and USF provide tuition waivers the brings the cost near the in-state price for people doing programs wholly online.

    It is very common, because most state schools are mainly funded by state taxpayer dollars and therefore they give a "discount" to those who are in-state and thus supporting the state school via (hefty) sales, property and/or excise taxes.

    When schools give out-of-state students tuition breaks, that is good news.

    Florida has one of the highest surcharges that I've seen.
