Exact totals may vary depending on the catalog requirements you are following, if you have transferred in courses, or if you have been granted substitutions.

Tuition, program fees, and course fees are for the current academic year, as approved by the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees. Tuition and fees are subject to change by the Washington State Legislature and/or the Community Colleges of Spokane Board of Trustees.

Resident tuition is what Washington residents pay. Non-Resident tuition is what out-of-state students pay. International tuition is what out-of-country students pay. For clarification on residency, see Determining your Residency Status.

Avg. Books & Supplies: $942 for an academic year.
The cost for books and course-related material is an estimate based on the Washington Financial Aid Association’s annual student budget. The actual cost of textbooks and course-related supplies can vary widely depending on your program of study and the options you have for obtaining textbooks and other course material.
