Florida's State & Community Colleges

The Florida College System consists of 28 Community and State Colleges. Most of these schools were originally two-year colleges designed to give students an affordable way to get an associates degree or a certificate. Today a majority of them have integrated 4-year Batchelor's Degree programs, still offered for a fraction of the cost of attending a university. Some refer to these colleges as Junior Colleges or Jucos. A report by the personal financial website Wallethub ranked Florida’s community college system #5 in the United States. This ranking was based on cost and financing, classroom experience, educational outcomes, and career outcomes.
