The College Affordability Diagnosis, a report from the Institute for Research on Higher Education at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, ranks Florida as 30th in the nation for college affordability. The report analyzes the cost of college in all 50 states and sheds light on college expenses in relation to family income.

The report found that, although the cost of college in Florida is reasonably priced in comparison to the rest of the nation, it is still too expensive for residents when compared to average household earnings in the state. For instance, the cost of full-time enrollment at a Florida public research university is equivalent to 26% of the average Floridian household’s income, according to a press release.
