Why the World Comes to Us

Eastern Florida State College (EFSC) is a great place to get an education. The reason is simple: excellent facilities on four campuses plus online eLearning options, exceptional instructors, small class size and a tremendous variety of career programs, all at one of the lowest tuition costs in the nation.

Brevard County is located along the east coast of Florida, approximately 100 kilometers from Orlando and 270 kilometers from Miami. The Kennedy Space Center is located in Brevard County and Walt Disney World/EPCOT Center and other world-famous central Florida attractions are a one-hour drive from EFSC's Cocoa campus.
