New College of Florida, located in Sarasota, offers a distinctive liberal arts education on a 110-acre campus adjacent to the Sarasota Bay. Established as a private institution in 1960 and later designated as a public honors college in 2001, New College of Florida provides an academic environment with a focus on student-centered learning and advanced research opportunities. Its academic profile is marked by an innovative narrative evaluation system, instead of traditional grades, and a requirement for students to complete a senior thesis project. The college is selective in admissions, striving for a diverse and intellectually driven student body. Popular majors at New College include Environmental Studies, Public Policy, and Marine Biology. The campus, endearing to the regional Sarasota School of Architecture style, also offers on-campus housing options to foster a close-knit educational community. While not a central feature, the institution lacks an emphasis on intercollegiate athletics; instead, the school provides a variety of student-led intramural sports and activities. Located less than an hour's drive from Tampa, New College embraces its scenic Gulf Coast setting, providing a tranquil atmosphere conducive to academic and personal growth.

In the most recent statistical year 1,830 prospective students applied, and 1,380 were granted admission.  Of those admitted 188 enrolled in the school.  681 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 8 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $5,227 plus fees of $1,689.
