Tuition and Fees
Get familiar with our billing and payment process
View your statement
Once you complete your documents and receive your schedule, you can view your ledger which will reflect all account charges. Please see the Office of Financial Aid with any questions before then. You can access your personal account ledger by logging into your Florida Poly Pulse account or by contacting the Bursar’s Office during regular business hours. Statements are not mailed.
Your ledger will include all tuition and fee charges and payments associated with your account. We encourage you to review your ledger statement prior to payment, once after initial registration, and at any time changes are made to your initial registration, to ensure that fees are adjusted accordingly. Tuition and fees must be paid by the deadlines specified in the Academic Calendar. The University reserves the right to assess late fees and restrict you from attending classes if your tuition and fees aren’t paid by the payment deadlines.
Pay your statement
Please write the student’s name and ID number on your check or money order, and make it payable to Florida Polytechnic University.
