With the fall semester starting for universities next month, a new report from the website Schools.com ranks the best 4-year colleges in Florida and one local school is in the top 10.
The scores are based on a 100 point scale focusing on a long list of data points, including in-state tuition and fees, the number of degrees offered and the average retention rate.
Boca Raton's FAU ranks 7th, with the website writing:"In terms of sticker price, there is no cheaper university in Florida than Florida Atlantic University." The school ranks fouth for grant aid offered as a percentage of tuition, which "helps graduates earn a degree with the third lowest median debt in the state."
FAU ranks two spots ahead of Florida State University.
Number one in the state is UF, which is also the 5th best university in the nation according to this list.
