A low-cost, program tuition is required at enrollment and is payable in full upon enrollment. Dual-enrolled high school students pay no tuition but may need to purchase certain personal supplies needed for program operation. All high school students who take not-for-credit evening courses must pay for tuition, books and supply fees. Certain programs require the purchase of supplies, insurance, FDLE background checks, tools and uniforms. Fees are subject to change without notice.

Lab fee information for individual programs may be obtained at the TCCAE Main Office. For short-term, fee based classes, the full cost of instruction determines the cost of the class.

Each student has to submit documenation that he/she has been a Florida resident for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the first day of class for which the student is enrolling. Please see Florida Residency Documentation List below under attachments.

Financial Responsibility

When a student registers for classes, they enter into an agreement with the Technical Center for Career and Adult Education and assume full financial responsibility for all educational debt charged to their student account regardless of who pays the bill on the student's behalf.
It is the student's responsibility to be aware of their account balance, financial aid information, TCCAE policies, and important deadlines or dates.

Helpful tips to stay informed of responsibilities:

  • READ emails sent by office, instructors, or financial aid to be notified of important deadlines and dates
  • Understand TCCAE's refund policy and deadlines for dropping courses or withdrawing from TCCAE
