Brandon sign with flags

Beginning with the Spring 2003 semester, Hillsborough Community College is pleased to offer state employees the opportunity to take college courses TUITION FREE!

Full time employees of the State of Florida may enroll in up to 6 credit hours each semester on a "space-available" basis. Space-available is defined as the first day of the class, during Drop and Add. Please note that this program does not include persons employed by the state university system, the community college system, or local school districts.

All eligible state employees must submit the State Employee Waiver Form signed by the employee's supervisor and agency director, and complete the HCC application process if not a currently enrolled HCC student. All new students must complete the HCC application, take the appropriate placement tests and attend orientation and advising prior to registration. Tuition and fees, such as student activity fees, will be waived. Participants will be responsible for the application fee, lab fees and any other "user" fees such as parking.

STATE EMPLOYEES WHO ARE REGISTERED PRIOR TO THE DROP/ADD DATE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO CHANGE THEIR SCHEDULE IN ORDER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FEE WAIVER.
