Excess Hours Advisory Statement

An excess hour surcharge is effective for students who enter Seminole State or any Florida College System institution or state university for the first time as follows:

  • For the 2012-13 academic year and thereafter, an excess hour surcharge equal to 100 percent of the tuition rate for each credit hour in excess of 110 percent.

Students whose educational plan may include earning a bachelor's degree should make every effort to enroll in and successfully complete those courses that are required for their intended major on their first attempt. Students intending to transfer to a state university should identify a major or "transfer program" early and identify admission requirements for that program, including the approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and/or repeats, as well as enrollment in courses not essential to the intended major, may contribute to a potential excess hour surcharge.
