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

3.73 Average Rating
Honestly, I have traveled and visited other culinary schools, INCLUDING The Culinary Institute of America, and I really did not find anything but people who think they are better than everyone else because of the reputation that goes with the school. It may be an amazing school, but you have to put in the effort to make your life happen for you. The same goes for Johnson and Wales University- Florida Campus, except the Chefs really do care about the students, plus the classes are smaller so that means more individualized attention from your chefs.

BTW, Le Cordon Bleu is no good unless you go to the original one in France. Americans try to screw things up by mass producing and it just doesn't work... and forget all other culinary schools, quite frankly, they are not worth the time because the education is not the same and all culinary schools are expensive! $$$
Dakotah from Hialeah, FL
I feel like I am getting the bang for the buck I am paying for a good school with professors that are willing to help me succeed in my field, the dorms are very spacious and good to live in, and the food that they prepare is very delicious.
Jamal from Brandon, FL
Expensive, but they provide a lot of financial aid.
Shana from Pembroke Pines, FL
Although the cost seem expensive at first glance, it does include a lot of benefits. Also, lots of employers are always on campus, you must look your best at all times, you will for sure have a good job once you get out if you keep your mind to it.
Jessica from Gainesville, FL
Johnson & Wales is extremely expensive, and tuition goes up a little over $1,000 each year, but a majority of the money is returned to the students in the form of scholarships. Although it's expensive, it's worth it. Not too long ago, my retailing class had the opportunity to tour Perry Ellis International's Florida head quarters, as freshmen.
Raqiba from Miami, FL
It is expensive but for some of the things we are allowed to do it's worth it.
Katrina from Round Rock, TX
This school is expensive, but you have to ask yourself, Does my educati
on & future have a limt? If your answer is no then you should consider Johnson & Wales.
LaToya from North Miami, FL
The college is costly but you get what you pay for. As a Culinary student, my labs are long and it can be overwhelming at times, but chefs and professors go out of their ways to help each individual student. They are extremely helpful and answer any questions you may have. They constantly remind you what you are paying for and make sure that you get your moneys worth.
Genneille from Evans, GA
Although tuition is quite expensive it is worth every penny. You get scholarships and grants and lots of help. The work-study program is great. You experience things here you wouldn't at a normal school.
