The desire to learn is the sole criterion for enrollment and Fromm Institute students attend classes merely for the satisfaction that comes from their association. As a member of Fromm Institute, our students have access to the Gleeson Library/Geschke Learning Center and enjoy the intellectual and social benefits of USF’s multi-generational college environment.
Because the Fromm Institute is a non-matriculating program where there is no grading or testing, there are no academic credits assigned due to that participation. Accordingly, unlike many other educational endeavors, the Fromm Institute is not tuition based.
Fromm Institute students enroll as members of the Institute, and through that affiliation are entitled to take as many as four (4) courses each session. When enrolling, depending on the time of the year, students elect to join as an Annual Member, a Session Member or as a Scholarship Member paying the associated relative fees. Because that fee is based on a general affiliation, not on how many, or few, courses a student selects, it is never adjusted based on attendance.
