Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Besides being a state school, I'm getting a scholarship for $7000/year. If you keep up decent grades, you're sure to get a great scholarship heading your way, along with if you qualify for Bright Futures here in Florida.
Veronica from Land o Lakes, FL
Florida Poly has some expensive food, but it is very delicious and most of it is actually healthy. However, if one wishes to save money instead of paying for food at Florida Poly everyday, he or she should bring food from home or buy groceries from a Publix nearby and make his or her own food to take to school.
Nigel from Lakeland, FL
Dorms are expensive but very much worth it for what you're getting. Although the food is very good it is a little pricey.
Guest from Poly City
They give nice sized scholarships as well as being within budget.

I don't think you will find another school that can give you the quality per dollar , this school is offering.
Tyler from Minneola, FL
Offered the inaugural scholarship, I'm paying practically nothing to go to school here. The school has the hitches you might expect of a university just starting, but we're working toward making this a better school.
Isabel from Cooper City, FL
Being a state university keeps this option very low budget. Which for me was important. I always wanted to go to a smaller college and most state colleges have 50,000 students but at Florida Poly they are putting a cap at 5,000 student which keeps class sizes small. So you are getting the experience of being at a smaller private college at the price of a state university.

Can't say much; they are still at the beginning of their reign.
