Student Fee Notice

May 13, 2019



The District Board of Trustees for Florida State College at Jacksonville will act upon the following matters at its next regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, at 1 p.m. at the College’s Administrative Offices, Board Room 405, 501 West State Street, Jacksonville, FL 32202.


The proposed actions will authorize the College to 1.) Change the fee for course NUR2960 National Council on Licensure Examination, to be effective July 1, 2019. The Associate in Science in Nursing Accreditation Standards requires National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) license pass rates at or above 80%. The Florida Board of Nursing reports that local competing schools of nursing all maintain 90% and higher passing rates. To prepare for this examination, the College offers a live review course to students in the ASN program. As a result, the ASN program has experienced higher pass rates with the implementation of the live review course. The current contracted rate of $280.00 has expired. The College and Hurst Review Services has negotiated a price of $300.00 per student for the course review. This new fee is contractually in place until June 30, 2022. The recommended changed fee is projected to have no net fiscal impact on the College. Fee assessed to Student is to cover the cost of the live review course from Hurst Review Services and 2.) Change the current testing fees to ensure partial recovery of costs associated with providing academic and commercial assessments/ remove current testing fees when FSCJ no longer offers the assessment, to be effective July 1, 2019. Assessment of the recommended fees will provide partial recovery of the costs associated with providing these tests. The recommended revised fees are projected to have no net fiscal impact on the College.

Any person requesting to address the above matters will be provided an opportunity to do so by appearing before the Board at the June 11th meeting. Copies of the Fees and Charges Item will be available for inspection beginning May 14, 2019, in the Office of the College President, Room 408D, 501 West State Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32202 as well as on the College’s website at under the Student Notice Alert.
