Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

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.

What Students Are Saying

3.30 Average Rating
Very cheap. Attend this college if you want to save money! Don't just jump into universities. Take the time to save money while you go to classes at Edison State College. Depending on which classes you take and how many, tuition can cost up to $2,000. If you have Bright Futures or any other scholarship, it will help tremendously with these expenses. Night and online classes are almost too convenient. Some professors have pdf files of their textbooks (depending on which professor you have), others don't even use the assigned textbook.
Angelica from Fort Myers, FL
Extremely worth it!!! Dont waste money at a big university when you can pay less. I have had classes with 6 and 7 students. Talk about individual attention.
Angela from Naples, FL
buy and sell books back at Edison for a great price!
Jesula from Fort Myers, FL
Very inexpensive, great for someone who doesn't have much money. With Bright Futures and financial aid, you really should have much to worry about when it comes to money...even though Edison doesn't always process that information right away.
Jessica from Lehigh Acres, FL
Most definitely. Why pay the university rates for the same classes being offered at Edison? Get you AA from Edison and transfer to a University later. You'll need the money later for something else.
Former Student from Naples, FL
You definitely get a good education at a great price! So worth it to go here then transfer, saves you tons of money!
Nicole from Cape Coral, FL
If you apply for in state tuition then it is cheap compared to other colleges.
Misty from Stuart, FL
Again, there is no perfection here but for the inquisitive and open-minded young scholar this campus is a secure foundation to build one's academic experience upon.
