What forms of payment are accepted at CCFT?
We only accept personal checks (made payable to Florida State University) or exact cash. Staff do not have the ability to make changes, so please bring the exact amount. The first session is $35, and additional sessions are based on a sliding scale. (View the fee scale pricing sheet)
Can you explain the Sliding Fee Scale?
FSU students pay a flat fee which we attempt to make as affordable as possible. All community residents pay an amount based on your family income. We require documentation of income to determine the amount. You will find that our rates are the most competitive in Tallahassee for quality care.
