How does CFIT keep its tuition so low?

CFIT doesn’t need to benefit shareholders. Our students are our main concern. We also try to keep our operating costs low. And even though we have a small campus in Winter Park, Florida, our main presence is online, therefore we don’t need to maintain expensive classroom buildings, a campus, and other non-academic programs.

Reducing Student Dept

CFIT’s Responsible Borrowing Initiative encourages students to utilize our in-house interest free tuition payment plan. Students and their families may choose to budget all or part of their academic charges in monthly installments* with the Tuition Payment Plan administered by CFIT. Read more:
