Florida State University strives to provide an affordable online master's in social work. Tuition is broken up into the two programs:
Tuition amount also depends upon whether or not an individual is a Florida resident. If you are new to Florida but have not established residency, you may have to pay out-of-state tuition.
Market rate tuition refers to an out-of-state student who attends the main campus and pays the in-state tuition, plus an out-of-state tuition differential of approximately $1,100 per credit hour. Individuals participating in the online program enjoy a market rate difference of more than $400 with a market rate of $625 per credit hour.

FSU encourages students to look at the wide array of financial aid options available to them.
