5. Why do I have to prove residency in Florida?

The tuition charged is based upon residency. Non-Florida residents are required to pay the full cost of tuition which is higher than the resident tuition rate. A Residency Affidavit is included with the application. Until a residency determination is made, the nonresident rate will be charged.
