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

3.13 Average Rating
It is not that expensive and not a private school so Bright Futures pays 100% tuition, and the teachers always try to choose the cheapest text books for the students.
Crystal from Florahome, FL
Although it is not a University, there are programs here where you can earn a Bachelor's degree, and of course it's much cheaper. There is a food bank that gives food out every Wed. there is also a vegetable garden where they provide the products for you all you have to do is take care of your garden. Every so often there are events where they have free food and all you have to do is fill out a small survey. So there are MANY opportunites where you can save on food.
Genesis from Gainesville, FL
The classes are cheaper than most colleges, and it allows you to get through the grueling generic classes with ease. Since they've switched to a regular college, the prices have risen slightly, but not so much that you'll need to penny pinch for awhile.
Beth from Keystone Heights, FL
Cheaper. I'm planning to transfer to UF in three years and I've already saved so much money. I'm transferring for my bachelors in Zoology but I'm doing a dual enrollement of sorts because I'm still going to be in Santa Fe working on my AS in technical zoology at the zoo. Im going to be saving so much money!
Arelis from Apopka, FL
As I told you, Santa Fe is everything you expect to be, this also includes the monetary part. I am sure every one in the college is happy and in peace because of what they pay and what they gain because of that.
Juan from Gainesville, FL
All of my professors have gone above and beyond to give me bang for my buck.
Blake from Hobe Sound, FL
When it come to cost, especially for a Bachelor's Degree, the cost compared to a University is great. In state it is $330 plus lab fee of $30. This for in state students only. I am not real sure about out of state, but I know it is more.
Debra from Dunnellon, FL
Small Class sizes, Professors who care, and courses that matter and degrees for me all a great slogan and is not a lie
Travis from Ocklawaha, FL
Santa Fe College is a college that understands that college students are there to make it! They wont nickle and dime you!
