Tuition and Fees

Our staff is here to help guide you make payments for your program and various ways to cover your expenses.

Tuition and fee payments are due prior to the start of each pay period through our Registration Office on our Main Campus. Methods of payment include:

  • Check
  • Cash
  • Credit Card with Visa, Mastercard, or Discover
  • or a Financial Aid Waiver

You can make a payment over the phone by emailing [email protected] to schedule or call (904) 547-3381 or (904) 547-3383 to talk to staff.

Students using grants or scholarships must bring proof of those awards when they register.

If a student becomes ineligible or exhausts their grants or scholarships, the student is responsible for any unpaid balance.

Common Financial Assistance Sources (requirements may be subject to change):

  • Veterans Assisting Funding – Students must go through the School Certifying Official in the Financial Aid department before registering for school. Students with less than 100% eligibility will be required to pay the remaining amount. There may also be some fees, such as parking, that the VA does not pay for. These will be the responsibility of the student.
  • CareerSource – To register, the student must present a valid voucher to Registration. Course estimates are available at Registration.
  • Career Navigators – To register, the student must present a valid Career Navigators voucher to Registration.
  • Open Door Grant – The Open Door Grant Program is a Financial Aid program offered by First Coast Technical College and funded by the Florida Department of Education. The program is designed to incentivize current and future workers to enroll in career and technical education programs that lead to a credential, certificate or degree. The grant covers 100% of tuition and fees associated with the eligible programs not otherwise covered by federal grants, state grants or other third party payments. Funds are subject to availability and will be awarded once the application is approved and all other aid is applied.
