How Much Does it Cost?

While a community college is significantly cheaper than a university, smart spending is just as important.



*Tuition rates reflect the annual cost for one full-time (with 15 credits), WA State resident attending fall, winter and spring quarters in one academic year. This cost reflects tuition only and does not include student fees that vary based on school and area of study. Tuition fees do not reflect any financial assistance, which may help reduce your out-of-pocket expenses, based on your eligibility. Numbers shown reflect 2020-2021 tuition costs.
