The 20 Worst Universities in Florida in 2017


7. South University

Location: Tampa, FL

Number of Students: 457

Acceptance Rate: 63%

The location near Gulf Coast beaches is likely what pulls students into this Florida school. However, with a shameful graduation rate of just 12%, South University doesn’t exactly have an exceptional reputation. The number one reason that students drop out (and the number one complaint amongst students) is the cost. The average annual tuition is $23,337 and very little financial aid is available. The financial aid office doesn’t seem too keen on helping students explore their options either. As a result, students are ditching this Florida college and heading on to better, and cheaper, things. Did you know you can take Harvard classes online for free? Why bother with awful schools in the first place…
