Local College Offers $10,000 Bachelor's Degree
Published May 28th, 2013
Ocala--$10,000 is all it would take to get a Bachelor's Degree at the College of Central Florida in Ocala.
Admissions Director Teri Little-Berry says this program is definitely affordable by comparison to area universities that are charging upwards of $26,000 to complete a comparable program. The program is the brainchild of Governor Rick Scott, who spoke with several presidents in the college system and CF was the first one to take advantage.
There are a few rules to the program. You must be a Florida resident. The program is only being offered in 4 majors; Agribusiness management, health care management, management information systems and public safety administration. Students must also maintain a certain grade point average.
Little-Berry says the reason they chose these majors is due to their popularity. The school is giving the initiative a one year trial run.
Little-Berry says this program will not only economically benefit the student, but will get the school's name out there too. Florida college system chancellor Randy Hanna stands behind the $10,000 degree challenge.
