Tuition, Fees, and Residency

Your graduate tuition and related student fees are assessed based on residency, first enrolled term of the current degree, and course level. Please visit the University Bursar’s website for current UF graduate tuition and student fee rates. Additional estimates of the costs of attendance for graduate students can be found on the UF Student Financial Affairs website.

Residency refers to whether you are an in-state resident or an out-of-state resident, and is initially taken from the information you provide upon application to the University. This classification determines your rate of tuition. Florida residents pay less in fees per credit hour than do non-Florida residents.

Establishing residency for tuition purposes is not possible in less than 12 months, however. The State of Florida requires 12 months of employment and presence in the state prior to beginning a degree in order to recieve in-state tution rates. Please visit Establishing Florida Residency on the UF Admissions website for more information about establishing Florida residency for tuition purposes.
