Cost is the cost of your college education before any financial
aid is factored in, and consists of Tuition, Fees, and On-Campus
Housing. The actual total amount that you will pay as an individual
(Out of Pocket Cost) is subject to several factors that affect
base cost (how many courses you take, whether or not you live
on campus), as well as factors that affect financial aid (Estimated
Family Contribution, awarded scholarships and grants, etc.). The
simplest way to understand the actual annual cost of your education
is by the following formula:
BASE COST (tuition/fees/housing)
- FINANCIAL AID (grants/scholarships/loans)
= OUT OF POCKET COST (actual cost)
BASE COST 2013 - 2014
(12 credit hours)

inflation can make long-term planning difficult at times, especially
when it concerns the inflation of college tuition prices. To help
make your education more affordable and enable you to more easily
plan your long term financing, Florida Christian College instituted
a Fixed Rate Tuition plan for all degree-seeking students, beginning
in the 2004-2005 academic year. Fixed Rate Tuition simply
means that the tuition rate a student enters with will remain
the rate they pay throughout the duration of their time at Florida
Christian College. This rate is applicable for up to
10 consecutive semesters, as long as the student maintains an
accepted admissions standing and continues to be enrolled in a
degree program (does not apply to dual-enroll, or non-degree seeking
students). Courses taken after graduation, after ten semesters,
or upon readmission, will be charged at that year's current tuition
and affordability are the best words to describe student meals
at FCC. Our campus housing includes 2 and 3 bedroom apartments,
complete with full kitchens. This gives our students the opportunity
to prepare their own meals and avoid expensive meal plans. Our
students also enjoy the wide variety of restaurants that Kissimmee
and the Greater Orlando area have to offer. You will want to be
sure to include meal expenses in your college budget planning.
On average, students at FCC spend between $80 and $120 on food
