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.

What Students Are Saying

3.10 Average Rating
As an in-state student the cost for classes are not a huge dent in you pocket like many of the other universities in the area. Some classes are more expensive then others but the cost is a million times better then most schools.
Gabrielle from Miami, FL
Definitely 100% bang for the buck. Credits per semester is half the price from a University. Computer labs open daily for students and a library. Lunch time is the best because there is a McDonald's from across the campus and a food service area within the campus. Must I admit the food is high quality and cheap! Oh! My favorite gym-membership is only $30/mo and you are not restricted to one gym but can go to any in the Miami Dade College campus's...Great way to meet new people.
Diana from Miami, FL
Completely affordable education. Tuition for two years = $5000
Michelle from Miami, FL
Miami Dade College is truly your bang for the buck! I have spent two years at Miami Dade College debt-free! The Pell Grant covers all of the tuition at Miami Dade College. The education and the cheaper tuition goes well together!
Nadine from Miami, FL
oh heck's yea your going to save a lot of money here and its the same courses that are being learned at universities
Kassandra from North Miami, FL
Even with the social and academic gaps that this school has, it is extremely cheap since tuition is inexpensive and there is no room and board since it is a local college. Also a lot of the classes don't really require that you buy a book or have books under the $100 range which ads to it's affordability.
Tomas from Miami, FL
The money is also a reason why MDC is an excellent choice, here you pay little and learn alot.
Daymaris from Miami, FL
I believe my money is well spent at Miami-Dade. There is always something I can do. I don't have a car so when i'm at Miami-Dade I have to make sure I get things done. If I don't have homework or anything otherwise academic to do I can go to the library, or the gym, or even the swimming pool. It's a low key school and every dollar was well spent.
Alexandra from Miami, FL
Miami Dade College is not expensive to begin with and either way, there is financial aid offered. Most people attending Miami Dade college receive financial aid assistance or get a loan from Miami Dade and create a payment plan in order to pay it off. Unfortunately, I am biased in this area because as a Miami Dade Honors College Student, everything is paid for so there are no worries in that aspect. You're allowed to take as many classes as you want (and pass them of course) without any worries of having the sufficient funds to pay the tuition and any other fees. Either way, you're getting what you pay for - if not more at Miami Dade College!
Elizabeth from Miami, FL
Definitly is the best for student tight on money. The amount per credits is unbeatable and worth the money. Can not complain with the cost's at Dade they are very descent and affordable for everyone.
