Cost and Financial Help

The college is supported by both the state and county so the tuition is low. Typically one quarter to one half the cost of similar public or private higher educational institutions. Tuition is based on the number of credit hours taken times the cost per credit hour. Tuition is different for in county residents, state residents and out of state residents. In addition to tuition and fees each student is expected to purchase their textbooks and supplies. For students who qualify the college offers financial help by providing financial aid and scholarships.
