Although it should never be the only determining factor when considering schools, knowing how much you will have to pay out of pocket to attend is certainly important information. The NCES determines the lowest net price by adding together the actual costs of tuition, books and, if applicable, room and board, and then subtracting the average amount of financial aid given to full-time undergrad students. Almost all of the schools reporting net prices around Fort Mitchell came in at less than $20,000 for 2014-2015.

Highest Graduation Rate
Knowing the graduation rate for an institution may give a potential student some insight into how devoted the school is to the success of its students. The NCES determines the graduation rate for a school by counting those full-time undergrad students that complete their chosen degrees within 150% of the normal time. In other words, a bachelor's degree is normally completed in 4 years, so the NCES would count all of those that finished within 6 years, or 150% of 4 years. Unfortunately, most of the graduation rates in the area were less than 50% for 2015.
- Daymar College-Bellevue (55% graduation rate)
- Thomas More College (48% graduation rate)
- Northern Kentucky University (40% graduation rate)
- Brown Mackie College-Northern Kentucky (34% graduation rate)
