  1. Beware of Nova's online program. They provide the courses needed for a degree & might drop you before completion of final requirements.

  2. "(4) A state university may waive any or all application, tuition, and related fees for persons 60 years of age or older who are residents of this state and who attend classes for credit. No academic credit shall be awarded for attendance in classes for which fees are waived under this subsection. "

    I don't understand the above subsection. Students who are 60 or above and who attend classes for credit are not awarded academic credit. What?

    2. I am confused too. The two sentences are contradictory. I can tell you that I attend St. Pete College and have been told that I can take classes with the tuition waiver AND get a degree. I am working on a certificate and only have 5 credit hours to go.

    3. It's simple, if you don't understand what it means, you are not college material. But, for the dunce class, if you pay you get credit, if you don't pay and audit the class for free you do not get credit.

    6. I'm the dunce class that asked the question and I've dropped the median IQ in Florida by moving back in 2014. I am a cum laud graduate in Chemistry, and have done graduate work in EE, Software Engineering, MBA, and Health Care Admin with a GPA of around 3.8+. Taught Math and EE at Nuclear Power School, maintained CT, Nuclear medical systems, wrote software in use by Boeing, National Science Foundation. I could go on. However, I sheepishly admit that I do not have a degree in bureaucratic double speak. The good news is that now that I'm in FL, I can take such a course for free.

My company specializes in assisted living in Warner NH, and many of our clients choose to spend their winters down in Florida, which means we have traveling caregivers who look after them.

  7. Some classes are for credit/others are not. For instance a speech or a learning trip may not be offered for credit. Or some pre-college or introductory classes. The non-credit classes will/might also have a charge which you might have to pay for.
