This waiver, which applies to online students enrolled in our M.Ed., Ed.S Ed.D. or certificate programs), is not applied until after the end of the drop/add period for each semester. It is only applied once per semester so you must be registered for all courses even if they are 8W2 courses by the end of drop/add. You can not receive the flat rate waiver if you enroll in a course after the drop/add period.
One of the things about this waiver is that it is college-specific, so at the end of drop/add, when we are certain that everyone has registered, then one of the staff members in charge of this sends a list of all those students who qualify to the Bursar’s office, and then the waiver is applied. You can be assured that if you are in a completely online program (M.Ed., Ed.S Ed.D. or certificate programs), then the tuition rate will eventually be what it on this tuition page: https://education.ufl.edu/coe-online/tuition-and-fees/
Please note that this waiver is college-specific (the college bears the financial costs of these waivers), so Bursar’s office will not be able to give you accurate information since they typically quote from standard tuition rates which are higher than the waiver. We know this can be frustrating but this is the only way we can apply the waiver.
