The tuition differential only pertains to general education and art history courses. It does not apply to studio classes.
Any undergraduate student who has earned 56 or more credit hours after fall semester grades post will be affected. Graduate students are not affected by this change.
In MyFSU, Academics and Services tab, Student Records channel, select Unofficial Transcript and scroll to “Transcript Totals”. Refer to number in the “Overall Earned Hours” column. Please note that this number will not be updated with hours earned for Fall semester until approximately Dec. 17.
If you have earned less than 56 credits hours at the beginning of Fall semester, but will have earned more than 56 credit hours once Fall grades post, then your first billing statement for Spring semester will not reflect the increase. Your bill will be recalculated to reflect the higher tuition amount after grades post.
To calculate the impact this tuition differential will have on your billing statement, multiply the number of general education and art history credit hours you are registered for in the Spring semester by the appropriate per credit hour charge as listed in question number two. Example: If you are a Michigan Resident, Undergraduate student, enrolled for 3 credit hours of general education and 3 credit hours of Art History for Spring semester, your increase will total $30.
