Lowest Net Price

One useful method for approximating the amount of money it will cost to attend a given college is through the NCES net price calculator, which subtracts the average amount of financial aid full-time undergrad students received at a given college from the total expenses students paid at that college in a single school year. The following net prices are all provided by the NCES and are taken from the 2014-2015 school year. Almost all of the net prices in the area are under $20,000.

  • Gateway Community and Technical College ($7,644)
  • Northern Kentucky University ($9,173)
  • Thomas More College ($18,567)
  • Beckfield College-Florence ($26,842)

Highest Graduation Rate

The primary way the NCES ranks graduation rates is by looking at the percentage of full-time undergraduate students who graduate from their college's program within 150% of the normal time it should take to be completed. Traditional Kentucky schools in the Florence area had graduation rates of 30% or higher for 2015, according to NCES data.
