Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fee Information

Tuition and associated fees for graduate students are updated each year on the New College website at Graduate Tuition and Fees.

Since all fees are subject to change without notice (by action of the Florida Legislature), the fees on the NCF website should be used only as guidelines. New College will make every effort to advertise any fee changes as they occur, but students should be prepared for variations at the time of registration. Non-Resident fees are charged on the basis of the student’s residency classification for tuition purposes.

Invoices are available online through NewCLEIS. Invoices are not provided unless the student is cleared for registration. Payment may be made by check at the Finance Office during normal working hours, or paid online with a credit or debit card or via electronic check payment through NewCLEIS, or mailed to:

New College of Florida
Finance Office (Palmer D-1st floor)
5800 Bay Shore Road
Sarasota, FL 34243-2109.

Checks must be made payable to New College of Florida for the correct amount, and must include the student's name and New College Student Identification Number on the face of the check. When sending checks by mail, please ensure that they are postmarked on or before the payment deadline. (We recommend using certified or registered mail, and that you retain the receipt as proof of the mailing date.)

Special Fees, Fines, and Penalties

For the 2023-2024 Academic Year, please take note of these special processing fees:

  • Late Registration Fee
  • Late Payment Fee for non-deferred registration fees unpaid at the end of the second week of classes (Friday).
  • Late Payment Fee and Returned Check Charge will both be assessed if a check is returned by the bank.

Collection Costs

In the event the student becomes delinquent or defaults in paying charges due to the college, the student will be liable for collection costs and any other costs incurred by the college in an effort to collect monies due from the student.

For information on these, other fines, penalties, and use fees, please go to the website Graduate Tuition and Fees.

Cancellation of Registration for Nonpayment of Fees

All fees are due and payable by the close of business on the fee payment deadline date to be considered on time. The postmark date is not considered on time. Students who have not paid their fees in full by that deadline may have their registration canceled for that semester. Cancellation of a student's registration means that the student is no longer enrolled.

A student may request reinstatement only during the two weeks following the cancellation deadline, and all fees must be paid at the time of the request.

Withdrawal and Tuition Refunds

Officially requested refunds will be made for appropriately documented withdrawals according to the following schedule:

Date of Withdrawal Eligibility Limitations of Allowable Refund
2nd week of classes (Monday - Friday) None 100% of tuition and fees
3rd through 4th week of classes None 25% of tuition and fees (not including late registration, late payment and capital improvement fees)

If withdrawing after the end of the semester, the official date of withdrawal will be the last day of classes of the semester. If withdrawing during the semester, the official date of withdrawal will be whichever of the following is earliest:

  1. the earliest date recorded on your Withdrawal Request form received by the Office of the Registrar
  2. the date that you provided notification to the Office of the Registrar of your intent to withdraw
  3. if we determine that you stopped attending classes prior to any of the dates above, then the last date of academically related activity that we document, or the 50% point of the semester. Financial aid and scholarship recipients, please note: If you withdraw, or if you stop attending classes, you may be responsible for repaying all or part of your aid. In addition, if you hold a student loan, the start date of your repayment grace period may be backdated to the time you stop attending classes and tutorials.

*To be eligible for a 100% refund of tuition and fees charged, you must withdraw prior to, or during, the second week of classes of a given semester. However, in accordance with Florida Statute 1009.24(14)(g), students who had been scheduled to enroll for their first semester at New College will forfeit the $200 admission deposit received by the College that may have been applied toward their tuition and fees, if they otherwise meet this 100% refund requirement.

Students who withdraw during the 3rd and 4th week of classes can receive a 25% refund of tuition and fees, minus any late registration, late payment and capital improvement fees.
