NFC Gives Notice of Fee Increase Proposal
In compliance with Florida Statute 1009.23, Educational Scholarships, Fees, and Financial Assistance,
North Florida College hereby notifies all enrolled students of the institution’s intent to propose the following fee increase to the College’s Board of Trustees: College administration and faculty request the increase of the current course fee for SLS 1103 (Student Life Skills) from $10 to $25. The proposal will be made at the monthly NFC District Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for November 17, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. The course materials for SLS 1103 are published by LUMEN; the publisher has terminated its offering of the original course materials and has moved to an updated product that provides a more interactive experience for students which includes personalized learning geared to increase student engagement and success. All LUMEN course products are now $25. This course material fee increase keeps the SLS 1103 course in the “low cost” category for textbook affordability at NFC; additionally, using the LUMEN product guarantees student access to the materials on day one of the semester. No additional resources will be required for student purchase related to SLS 1103.
