  • Florida Tech has an educationally based policy requiring full-time students with fewer than 56 credit hours to reside in university housing and participate in a meal plan (do not include college credits earned while a high school student). Incoming students to Florida Tech can learn how this policy affects their housing options at About Campus Housing on the Student Housing website.
  • New incoming freshmen should also download the Freshmen Housing Application Tutorial available from the Student Housing Forms and Documents web page.

  • Exemption from this policy must be approved by the Office of the Dean of Students. To see student categories that may be considered for exemption, look under Standards and Policies for the policy "First-Time Freshman Two-Year Residency Requirement" in the online Student Handbook.

    Note: If you are a first year student (or student with fewer than 56 credit hours), do not sign an off-campus lease unless you have received an exemption to the Two-Year Residency Requirement by the Dean of Students office.

Meal Plans

All campus food options are available via the meal plan program encoded on the student’s multi-purpose ID card.

At the end of spring semester, all unused FlexCredits expire with no residual value, refund nor transfer.

Health Insurance

Student health insurance is mandatory for domestic full-time, degree seeking students and all international students. Florida Tech negotiates with commercial insurance firms to offer a policy of basic injury and sickness coverage as one means to satisfy the requirement. Students are billed automatically for the student insurance plan at the beginning of each academic year and eligible students may purchase additional coverage for qualified dependents. Online students and students attending classes through the Department of Extended Studies are not eligible for the student insurance plan.

Florida Tech will consider waiving the requirement and removing the insurance charge provided the student takes specific actions to satisfy University requirements by the end of the second Friday of classes.  Students must have alternative health insurance acceptable to the University.  Review Health Insurance and the Holzer Health Center website for more information. International students should also review Health Insurance Waiver Information and may want to discuss their situation with the Office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS).


Single Student Explain This

Financial Aid

 

Review your Financial Aid Awards and enter the total of grants, scholarships and loans you plan to accept -- exclude any Federal Work Study amount you see.  This is our best estimate of your financial aid based on the current information you have provided to the University.  Actual award amounts may vary based on subsequent information we receive from you. 

 

The resulting Estimated Net Billable Expenses that display will reflect the difference between your estimated Total Billable Charges and your Total Financial Aid amounts. This is the amount you will be expected to cover from personal resources, outside scholarships you find and education loans the student or parent accepts. You may also consider Federal Work Study here because it is paid directly to the student bi-weekly based on hours actually worked during the previous two week period.

Estimated Fees for Flight Students
Explain This

Estimated Fees for Flight Students

For budget purposes, new flight students who do not have sufficient prior experience to test out of any first year flight courses should see the Flight Costs policy and use Table A to estimate costs.  Actual costs may vary based on aviation fuel costs and the student's rate of progress in satisfying all flight course requirements.  As noted in the text adjacent to Table A, "The largest single variable in flight training cost is student performance."

Flight costs must be paid with your Panther Card at the end of each lesson. Costs include aircraft time and actual fuel used, or flight training device time used, plus flight instructor time.  An initial deposit of $4,000 is required at the beginning of each course, or the minimum course cost if less than $4,000. Flight costs are calculated and deducted from the Panther Card at the conclusion of each lesson.  This "pay as you go" method necessitates that a $1,000 minimum balance be maintained for most courses to ensure flight training continuity. Additional information concerning payments can be found on the Student Financial Services website https://www.fit.edu/student-financial-services/ -- look for the link Notice for Flight Students in the left navigation panel on that web page.
