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.

Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
FSU encourages students to look at the wide array of financial aid options available to them.
Federal loans are an option. The government offers a number of federal loans through two main programs. The first kind is direct loans through the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, meaning the U.S. Department of Education is your lender.
The program offers four kinds of direct loans:
