Tuition and Financial Aid
Going to college doesn’t have to break the bank. And at UCF, it won’t. Here, you’ll get a quality education with lifelong benefits, not lifelong debt. U.S. News & World Report ranked us among the top 50 national universities for the least amount of debt. In fact, 57 percent of first-time-in-college students at UCF graduate without any educational debt. Combine that with best-value rankings from Kiplinger, Forbes and The Princeton Review, and it’s easy to see why UCF is gaining interest — in a good way.
