Cheapest Colleges in Florida by In State Tuition

If you're looking for an affordable university and you are a resident of Florida these are the least expensive in state colleges to consider.

Keep in mind that affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published in state tuition. It's important to research the typical financial aid package offered by a school, the average net price actually paid and most importantly the quality of education you receive for your tuition dollar. Sometimes a school which appears cheap based on list price can be a poor relative value if it can't award competitive financial aid or doesn't offer a quality education. The methodology for the list below is solely a ranking on published in state tuition with no consideration of actual average price paid or academic quality of the school. Please see the CollegeCalc best value colleges in Florida list for a ranking which considers school quality and net price.

The most affordable four year colleges in Florida are listed by one year's in state tuition list price for the 2013/2014 school year.

What is the cheapest college in Florida? Leading our colleges list is Broward College in Fort Lauderdale with an in state tuition of $1,810.

Another affordable option for Florida students is to study at a community college for two years, then progress to a full four year college to earn your bachelors degree. A comprehensive list of Florida community colleges can be found here with annual tuition that may be cheaper than four year colleges.

Academic Score is a CollegeCalc proprietary national percentile ranking of a college's overall difficulty and educational effectiveness. An average score is 50. Colleges which are "not ranked" didn't report sufficient data to formulate a score.

All price data are reprinted from the U.S. Department of Education's 2013-2014 IPEDS Survey and reflect reported costs for the 2013-2014 academic year.
