New College offers Ivy League quality at an affordable cost.

Parents work hard to save for their children’s education. We know that higher education is a major investment. The good news is that at New College, we have a very competitive guaranteed freshman scholarship program – guaranteeing scholarship funding to virtually all admitted freshmen who apply for the fall class by our priority deadline. We offer an ambitious array of both merit and need-based scholarships and grants. In fact, over 90 percent of our students receive some form of financial assistance.

Year after year, New College makes the list as a top “best value” school. The Princeton Review and USA Today named New College the No. 2 Best Value Public College in America in their 2011 list of “100 Best Value Colleges.” Forbes gave New College the No. 16 spot on its “Top 100 Best Buy College for 2011,” and Kiplinger’s ranked New College No. 5 in its “100 Best Values in Public Colleges” for 2012.

Today, well over half of graduating college students has loans to repay. New College’s student debt numbers rank favorably nationally and statewide. In fact, New College students leave with less indebtedness than any of the Florida state universities. Accordingly to a recent study by the Institute for College Access & Success, the average debt of a New College graduate was $14,794. The average debt for all public schools in Florida was $17,705 and nationwide, $20,467.
