The Florida Gulf Coast University board voted Tuesday in favor of a program that will allow students to receive a rebate of their freshman year tuition.
The board voted 11-0 in support of the rebate program. FGCU’s goal is to roll out the initiative when the fall semester starts in August.
Students will have to meet certain requirements to qualify for a rebate. The requirements include declaring a major as a freshman, graduating in four years or less, getting a full-time job in Florida within six months of graduating and earning an annual salary of at least $25,000 a year.
