Cost of Attendance

What is Cost of Attendance?

The cost of attendance is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend Florida State College at Jacksonville. The cost of attendance represents your basic living expenses in addition to tuition, books and supplies. 

When comparing financial aid packages from other schools, make sure you are comparing the total cost of attending that school, not just the total financial aid awarded. It is important for you to budget and make wise decisions regarding how to utilize the financial aid funds you receive. Students are not allowed to receive aid that exceeds their cost of attendance.

Your cost of attendance will vary depending on your program of study, your credit load per semester, your residency and your living situation.

Figures indicated here are based on estimates and full-time enrollment (12 credits). These are subject to change.
