Renewal of Waivers is Not Automatic. Waivers Requests Must Be Submitted Every Semester!

  • Non-Florida resident members of the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty stationed in Florida and their spouse and dependents do not require out-of-state waivers because they are granted Temporary Florida Residency.

New Alabama students:

  • New undergraduate students residing in Alabama should utilize the existing Alabama out-of-state tuition differential because it costs less than the new waiver characteristics described below. More information on the Alabama out-of-state tuition differential.
