CF ranked No. 20 in U.S. for affordability

July 6, 2016 — The College of Central Florida is ranked No. 20 in affordability in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Education. CF tuition and fees for 2014-2015 were 67 percent below the national average of $7,793 for public four-year or above institutions.

The news follows CF’s announcement in June that tuition will not increase for 2015-2016. The cost for associate level courses is $107.10 per credit hour, or approximately $2,570 per year for a student with a 12-credit course load for two semesters. Tuition has remained unchanged since 2012-2013.

The U.S. Department of Education releases the College Affordability and Transparency Lists annually to make the costs of college more transparent for students and their families. Data for the rankings comes from the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Systems. Tuition reports include tuition and required fees, and are for full-time beginning students. The figures are based on a 12-credit course load for two semesters.  

CF offers more than 70 programs including college credit certificates, postsecondary adult vocational programs, associate and bachelor’s degrees. Several programs, including the Associate in Arts, can be completed online.
