TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – May 14, 2019 – U.S. News & World Report named Florida the top state in the country for higher education for the third year in a row. The analysis considered the state's share of college degrees, the time it takes to earn one, in-state tuition costs and the debt burden college graduates carry.

"It is no surprise that U.S. News & World Report has again named Florida the top state in the nation for higher education," says Governor Ron DeSantis. "Our state colleges and universities have prioritized affordability and pathways for career and life and, as a result, they are transforming our state. I look forward to celebrating continued success as we build on this positive momentum."

"Our 12 public universities are all extremely focused on student success, increasing quality and driving down cost," adds Ned Lautenbach, chair of the Board of Governors, which oversees the State University System. "They also work closely with the Florida College System to make sure students experience a seamless transition when moving from a college to university level."

Florida's 28 state colleges are the primary point of access to higher education in Florida, with 65 percent of the state's high school graduates pursuing postsecondary education beginning at a Florida college; and 82 percent of freshman and sophomore minority students in public higher education attending one of Florida's 28 colleges, according to the governor's office.
