Comparing the Cost of a Degree

A college degree is one of the most significant investments an individual will ever make. It is also one of the most important choices a student makes, as it will affect the rest of his/her life. Florida's tuition and fees are the lowest among public universities who are members of the prestigious American Association of Universities (AAU).

In January 2013, Smart Money Magazine ranked UF #2 on the list of universities whose graduates get the highest salary return for their tuition dollars (2012).

UF's tuition is also ranked fourth in the nation for its value among state institutions. UF is consistently ranked among the nation's top universities: No. 2 in Kiplinger's "Best Values in Public Colleges" (2010) and No. 3 in the Princeton Review Best Value Public Colleges (2011).

UF Distance Learning also has online programs which have been approved for Market Rate tuition, by the State of Florida Board of Governors under Board Regulation 7.001(15). To learn more about these programs, visit the Market Rate information page.
