IRSC RANKED THIRD MOST AFF0RDABLE COLLEGE
IN US FOR SECOND YEAR IN A ROW

Indian River State College holds line on tuition

Indian River State College has been rated as the 3RD most affordable college in the country and most affordable of Florida colleges for the second year in a row according to the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Report. In addition, IRSC has  reinforced its long-standing commitment to affordability with no increase in tuition and fees for the 2016-2017 school year, maintaining the College’s low tuition rate for the fifth school year in a row.   

 “IRSC is committed to maintaining quality at reasonable cost, while helping students avoid  student loan debt. Affordable higher education is the gateway to good career prospects and a skilled workforce for our community,” said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC President.

 Average net price for full-time freshmen at IRSC was $1,807 in the U.S. Department of Education report. The net price is based on the cost of attendance after financial aid, grants and scholarships are subtracted.  Associate level tuition at IRSC  remains $103.83 per credit and $117.10 for Baccalaureate level credit, 40% less than Florida state universities and about 88% less than private career universities serving the Treasure Coast.

At IRSC, students are assured of quality as well as affordability. IRSC’s emphasis on teaching and student success has resulted in national recognition as a Top Ten National Finalist for the Aspen Prize for Excellence for two consecutive award cycles and selection as one of the nation’s Achieving the Dream colleges. IRSC’s combination of quality and affordability results in increasingly larger graduating classes, with 2,170 students graduating in December, 2016.   

The IRSC Financial Aid Department works closely with students to help them obtain all types of financial aid, including grants and scholarships which do not require repayment.  About 72% of IRSC freshmen typically receive financial aid or scholarships, and over $40 million in financial aid was awarded to IRSC students last year.
