Tuition: FSOD strives to provide affordable tuition while providing a top-rate, high quality experience. Our tuition is $8500, which is much lower than most traditional Bible colleges, with more hands-on training for life after FSOD.
Tuition covers a student's coursework, textbooks, housing, meals, retreats, stateside travel, campus life activities, and student accessories. Optional missions trips are not included in the cost of tuition.
FSOD is not qualified to accept financial aid because we are not classified as an eligible institution by the Federal government. If a student chooses the Lee University academic option, they may qualify for federal assistance through FAFSA, or other grants. It is the responsibility of the student to apply for this assistance. FSOD does accept private scholarships as long as they are designated to Florida School of Discipleship.
FSOD established The FSOD Scholarship in 2018, which allows deserving students help with tuition costs. The minimum scholarship awarded is $1000. More information about the Scholarship and how to apply can be found on the Scholarship page.
Important to remember:
- An additional $100 apartment security deposit is due at orientation and will be refunded following graduation if the apartment has no damage, a student does not have an outstanding balance, and all FSOD property is returned. - It is recommended that a student have approximately $50/month for personal spending. - Missions trips are optional and are not included in the cost of tuition. - The $500 deposit is non-refundable – no exceptions.
