According to a report from Just the News, Florida has held the line regarding undergrads enrolled in Florida’s public universities paying the lowest tuition in the country.

The state has maintained low tuition and fees since 2014-2015. Across the nation, states have seen an increase of 17 percent within the same time as Florida.

According to the latest analysis by the College Board, students in Florida pursuing a bachelor’s degree pay the lowest tuition in the U.S. The Annual Trends in College Pricing reports for 2022-23, Florida ranks as the least expensive state for students attending a public university to obtain a bachelor’s degree.

Earlier this year, Florida ranked first in the country for fees and tuition and first for overall higher education by U.S. News and World Report, which began its ranking system in 2017.

Governor Ron DeSantis said, “A college degree should not put our students into a lifetime of debt.” “Florida’s public college and university system is number one in the country because we put students first, and this achievement proves we are on the right track. We will continue to prioritize offering a world-class education at an affordable price, providing the greatest value for our students.”

According to the College Board analysis, for 2022-23, the in-state fees and tuition cost to students is $6,370. After financial aid is factored in, a student in the State University System pays less than $3,400 for the degree. The decrease in student costs has been consistent for five years.

Chair of the Board of Governors Brian Lamb noted that the Legislature and the governor were influencers in keeping fees and tuition costs down. He said it “reflects the emphasis our Board and university leadership have placed on accountability, performance, and cost, all of which attract the best and brightest students who seek the exceptional educational experience Florida’s institutions offer.”

The Freedom Report Card from the Heritage Foundation Education ranks Florida first in educational freedom. The report states, “Florida is the top-ranked state across the board because it embraces education freedom, respects parents’ rights, and provides a decent ROI for taxpayers.”

Governor DeSantis signed a higher education reform bill into law earlier this year that went into effect July 1. When DeSantis signed the bill, he said it “will dismantle the accreditation monopoly, bring accountability to tenured faculty, provide transparency in curriculum and protect students against fee increases.”
