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

3.90 Average Rating
The college is well thought out and is a relatively small campus. Most of the classes are located near or around the dorms and are within a ten min walk from any part of campus.
Lindsay from Pensacola, FL
UWF is an extremely cheap school, which is always beneficial. The campus is beautiful and all the buildings are completely original. You never feel like your on another perfectly cut lawn, with perfectly trimmed bushes, etc. Again, the teachers really help you out. All you have to do is ask.
Karyssa from Navarre, FL
Exellent value and good scholarships available. Beautiful campus.
Alvin from Pinellas Park, FL
I do not have much experience in the cost to education analysis, but I can definitely tell you that UWF is an excellent choice given what I know. The tuition fee is relatively low and, as mentioned before, you can learn a LOT(!) with tons of oppertunities to use it in the real world.
Tien from Pensacola, FL
This University really is the cheapest on in Florida. The staff members are nice, as are the students. And the campus is GORGEOUS and is located on a 1,600 acre wildlife preservation! There's no bigger bang for one's buck than it is at this University. You can drive 30 minutes south and be on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Panhandle. Really, REALLY a bang for your buck!
Lacey from Pensacola, FL
DEFINITELY. UWF was absolutely worth the time and hard work I put into trying to go there. I look forward to going back this year.
Christopher from Grand Ridge, FL
Great value for college!
Haley from Pensacola, FL
The tuition is one of the best in the entire state.
Emily from Pensacola, FL
UWF is the CHEAPEST university in Florida.
Eric from Pace, FL
I researched most Florida public universities before applying. The University of West Florida was my number 1 pick. It has small student body, close to the coast, the cost for tuition and books reasonable. The cost of housing was higher than most but location, the sense of security and welcoming atmosphere overrides that cost.
