Public Notice of Fee Changes

March 30, 2021 Suzanne Seldes

FORT PIERCE, FL— The Indian River State College (IRSC) District Board of Trustees will hold its regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 27, 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 distance learning, convenience, and several laboratory and course 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."

The proposed lab fees listed below are a result of a thorough review of the costs of every laboratory course 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. In some instances, proposed fees are lower than current fees. Current laboratory fees have been in place since 2012.

Additionally, IRSC is lowering the per credit hour tuition charges for non-resident Baccalaureate students, making educational attainment at IRSC even more widely accessible. The College is identified by the United States Department of Education as the most affordable College in Florida and the second-most affordable College in the country.

After a thorough analysis of courses delivered through the online modality, the College proposes a distance learning fee of $10 per credit hour to offset costs incurred to support online learning. The current fee is $5 per credit hour. Additionally, a convenience fee of 2.3% is proposed for all online credit card transactions. The convenience fee offsets merchant charges incurred by the College.

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