Governor Scott’s “Finish in Four, Save More” Challenge Encourages Universities and Colleges to:
Remove all additional fees for online classes. These fees can be up to $100 per credit hour at many of Florida’s state universities. That means for an average three credit class, students can pay upwards of $300 dollars;
- Tell incoming freshmen when they are picking their majors and scheduling their classes the amount of money they will save if they graduate in four years;
- Urge the Legislature to expand Bright Futures to cover summer classes so we give students more flexibility to graduate in four years. Governor Scott will once again propose this during the next legislative session;
- Ensure students get credit for college and AP courses taken during high school; and
- Make it easier for students to get class credit for internships in their fields, which puts students on the path to getting a good paying job.
