Cheapest Colleges in Florida by Out of State Total Cost

If you're looking for an affordable university in Florida but aren't a state resident, these are the least expensive out of state colleges to consider. Additionally, if you are a foreign citizen and cannot qualify for in-state tuition, these are the cheapest universities in Florida for international students.

Keep in mind that affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published out of state total cost. 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 out of state total cost 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.

Total cost may factor in an estimated off-campus living expense if a school doens't provide housing. This estimate may vary widely by college. To view a rank by academic fees alone please see our Florida tuition ranking.

The most affordable four year colleges in Florida are listed by one year's out of state total cost list price for the 2013/2014 school year. Total cost includes tuition, room and board or estimated off campus living expenses, books and supplies and other fees.

What is the cheapest college in Florida? Leading our colleges list is Hobe Sound Bible College in Hobe Sound with an out of state total cost of $11,540.

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.
