Notice of Proposed Fee Change

July 27, 2021

The Indian River State College (IRSC) District Board of Trustees will hold its regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at 3:30 p.m. In addition to the regular agenda, which may include, but is not limited to, business affairs, personnel matters, facilities items, and academic and student affairs, the District Board of Trustees will also consider changes to application and several laboratory fees.

Florida Statute 1009.23(12)(a) grants authority to Florida College System institutional boards of trustees to establish fees within a range allowed by state statute. These fees "shall not exceed the cost of services provided and shall only be charged to persons receiving the service."

After a thorough analysis of the costs associated with processing applications, the College proposes a fee for all applications, a common practice for most Florida State College institutions. The fee associated with applications to Bachelor's Degree programs does not change.

The proposed lab fees listed below are a result of a thorough review of the costs of laboratory courses and reflect the costs of consumables, as well as pass-through fees for testing and insurance. All laboratory and course fees are used to purchase items specifically related to that courses' student learning outcomes and course objectives. Current laboratory fees have been in place since 2012.

The following chart highlights proposed per-course or per-credit-hour fee changes by term:
