    For this college application fee wasn't that bad, the commitment fee wasn't that bad too. Just have to cross your fingers if you get Financial Aid or TAP for when you start your first year of classes. Roughly......$2,000 (may not be accurate). Sometimes if you don't qualify for FAFSA and/or TAP or u only qualify for TAP, recommend you seek the ASAP program, however they do have requirements that you must meet to be eligible for them to take you into the program. I would give it a shot, you'll never know.

    300 dollars per credit is not that bad for an international student who would like to study at a US Community College. Professors are top of the line and there are plenty of college resources at your disposal.
