Paying for college is on the minds of many families these days.

Forbes Magazine says Floridians don't have to go far to find a school that gives them the most for their tuition dollar.

Four schools in the state made their top 20 list of "best value" schools.

The University of Florida ranked 11th. Florida State University ranked 13th.

New College of Florida in Sarasota was 16th on the list, while the University of North Florida was 19th.

The top three schools on the list were all service academies that don't charge tuition -- the U.S. Military Academy, the Air Force Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy.

The list was based on price, graduation rates, student debt and faculty pay.
