Our tuition ranks among the lowest in the nation and the lowest among our competitors. In fact, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine consistently ranks FIU among the top “100 Best Values in Public Colleges”—and U.S. News & World Report also recognizes FIU as a “best buy” in higher education, ranking our students among the least indebted college students in the nation.
Through loans and grants and scholarships, we’ll help make your FIU education even more affordable. Our cost calculator will help you estimate what you can expect to pay for your FIU education. With the recent changes to FAFSA, students will be able to use taxes from up to two years ago and can apply as early as October 1. Early award priority date is December 1.
Students who qualify under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals do not qualify for federal financial aid, state scholarship programs and University scholarships that are funded through the State budget allocations. DACA students may be eligible for private scholarships depending on the requirements of the individual program. Students are encouraged to use search engines such as fastweb.com, finaid.org, edupass.org and collegeboard.org.
