FSC approves modest
increase for 2004-2005
LAKELAND, Fla. (February
19, 2004) - The Florida Southern College trustees approved a modest
increase in the cost of tuition at their February board meeting.
The additional $698 cost represents the lowest percentage increase
in the last ten years. The increase brings the cost of tuition to
between $16,680 and $18,240, based on the tier pricing of the school.
The percentage varies from 3.98% to 4.37% depending on the pricing
tier. Both room (standard double accommodations) and meal (full
21 meals) plans increased by six percent or $200 and $160 respectively.
"With this increase, we will remain competitive in Florida," said
FSC President Dr. Thomas L. Reuschling. "We want to maintain a strong
appeal to Florida students while remaining a best value to out-of-state
students looking for a private school." The modest increase keeps
FSC near the median tuition for private colleges in Florida.
