    Definitely the strong point in this college. If you get financial aid, your tuition could be paid off entirely.

    RVC is a community college, so it is very, very affordable. It is not the ideal college experience most students are looking for, however it will allow students to earn an education for a fraction of the price of many other colleges and universities. But since it is only a two-year college, students can still move on to four-year colleges and universities and gain the college experience.

    $100 a credit hour, great deal, still not affordable unless you take out loans, but all college is expensive. Definitely one of the lowest rates available.
