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.

What Students Are Saying

3.07 Average Rating
Small class sizes for reasonable tuition prices and teachers that seem to care about their students. They also have many students in the tutor lab that have been very helpful! Also, If you plan on transferring to a university that seem to have many resources to help students.
Kristen from Orlando, FL
Seminole state is overall a great choice! i would recommend it to anyone graduating high school or deciding to return to college, or even older first time students [like myself]. Seminole has a lot to offer everyone.
Gail from ORLANDO, FL
The tuition and fees are rather budget friendly, one of the lowest in the state of florida and in the U.S.
retha from Orlando, FL
The tuition is definitely affordable and the education is well worth it.
Ryan from Chuluota, FL
ssc is very affordable, and they make it easy for students to access loans and grants. as compared to ucf or fsu, i am paying just half the price of what my friends are dolling out for the exact same classes!
Esther from Oviedo, FL
For what I am paying to attend class here, I am getting a lot of my college experience and I think it's great.
Sarah from Oviedo, FL
I know a lot about the rates of colleges in the state of Florida, and Seminole State College is one of the cheapest. Cheap does not always equate to good education though, but in Seminole State College of Florida's case the college is both cheap ($96.80 per credit hour) and offers deeply fulfilling education in a wide variety of subjects with well versed professors in all fields. The college is especially good for foreign students who need an affordable yet worthwhile education and is also good for full-time employees as they offer many online classes at no extra charge. The college's nursing program is also highly regarded throughout the state of Florida and is definitely a worthwhile plan of study. The only possible problem centers around out-of-state students who have to reside in the state for at least a year before they can pay the normal tuition rates. Until they can prove they have lived in Florida for at least a year, they must pay 3 times the price (about $300 per credit hour).

Seminole State is cheap compared to other Florida Colleges, and it is definitely worth more than what I paid for it. The professors are over qualified, many of the ones I was privileged with having doctorate degrees, and they are passionate about teaching. The campus is actually quite beautiful and is under million dollar renovations. The new library can be described as luxurious. There are computer labs available at several different sites. The class sizes are small, in my experience ranging from 13-32. If you seek it out, you get personalized attention from administration, counselors, financial aid counselors, and professors. There is tutoring included in your tuition. The school does its best to provide students who need it with working and employment opportunities. I couldn't be happier with how I spent my first two years of higher education.
