The U.S. Department of Education’s (USDE) College of Affordability and Transparency Center ranked Broward College as one of the top 15 most affordable four-year higher education institutions in the nation for the 2011-12 academic year. Broward College tuition and fees ($2,446) were nearly 66 percent below the national average of $7,135 for public four-year or above institutions. Broward College ranked third in affordability among public, 4-year or above institutions in Florida.
“This recognition is another example of the value Broward College is providing students and the community through our affordable degree programs,” said President J. David Armstrong, Jr. “Broward College is committed to keeping cost low for students and families while providing career focused programs and talented faculty.”
The ranking follows the decision by the Broward College Board of Trustees to freeze tuition for the second year in a row.
The USDE releases the report annually to help track college costs while providing tools and data to help students and families make informed decisions about their higher education options. Using data from more than 4,000 institutions, the USDE highlighted colleges with the highest and lowest tuitions, the highest and lowest net prices, and the fastest-rising costs.
