State Colleges and Universities, Tuition
Add University of South Florida to the list of colleges in Florida charging “market-based” tuition for certain master’s degrees.
. . . The programs are designed for postgraduates seeking to bolster their skills or find a new career, with most of the classes being offered online. . . .
. . . Current tuition for USF’s other four proposed market-based programs, all master’s level, varies from $400 to $420 per hour for in-state students.
The lowest proposed market-based rate is $800 per credit hour for an information systems master’s, which is comparable to the current out-of-state charge.
The highest is $1,250 per hour, for the entrepreneurship master’s.
Please read the whole report. For resident students, USF desires to charge double that which Mississippi State or Western Kentucky might cost an out-of-state, online student. The practice, although understandable, also borders on the outrageous.
