The State University System of Florida has authorized all state universities, including UCF, to charge a Repeat Course Surcharge of $181.12 per student credit hour for each undergraduate course in which a student has enrolled in the same course more than twice. Currently, this surcharge is $177.57 per credit hour. The proposed increase is $3.55 per credit hour. The change will take effect for the Fall 2017 semester. This increase is mandated by state law, which states that “A student enrolled in the same undergraduate college-credit course more than twice shall pay tuition at 100 percent of the full cost of instruction . . . .” UCF will use the increased fee to cover costs of instruction.
