Excess Hours Advisory Statement
This Division of Florida Colleges advisory statement for incoming students is intended to ensure that all students within The Florida College System understand the importance and potential consequences of their course selections.
Section 1009.286, Florida Statutes, establishes an “excess hour” surcharge for a student seeking a baccalaureate degree at the state university. It is critical that students,including those entering Florida colleges, are aware of the potential for additional course fees.“Excess hours” are defined as hours that go beyond 115% of the hours required for a baccalaureate degree program. For example, it the length of the program is 120 credit hours, the student may be subject to an excess hour surcharge for any credits attempted beyond 138 credit hours (115 X 120%).
All students whose educational plan may include earning a bachelor’s degree should make every effort to enroll in and successfully complete those courses that are required for their intended major on their first attempt. Florida college students intending to transfer for a state university should identify a major or “transfer program” early and be advised of admission requirements for that program, including the approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and/or repeats, as well as enrollment in courses nonessential to the intended major, may contribute to a potential excess hours surcharge.
