CF No. 13 in Nation for Affordability
June 30, 2014
The College of Central Florida is ranked No. 13 in affordability in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Education. CF tuition and fees for 2012-2013 were 66 percent below the national average of $7,407 for public four-year or above institutions.
The news follows CF’s announcement Wednesday that tuition will not increase for 2014-2015. The cost for associate level courses will be $107.10 per credit hour, or approximately $2,570 per year for a student with a 12-credit course load for two semesters. That cost includes an additional $2 per credit hour in the capital improvement fee to support critical classroom and other facility repairs.
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 60 programs including college credit certificates, postsecondary adult vocational programs, associate and bachelor’s degrees. Some programs, including the Associate in Arts, can be completed online.
