  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

Its very clean and beautiful campus with lots of place to go and study in quiet. Its up to date with its computer labs and technology. Finally it is a wonderful school for those who want an education and do not have a lot of money.

College of Central Florida is very affordable and has quality instructors. Professors and administrators honestly care about their students and are willing to work with them. Their small class sizes and hands-on instruction really helps when learning difficult subject matter.

CF is a great college to earn 2 and 4 year degrees in a setting of small classes and wonderful professors. CF also has campuses in Marion, Levy, and Citrus Counties as well as online classes. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give CF a 10.
