    This is where Southwestern Community College excels the most. This school is very affordable, with in-state tuition being about $50 per credit hour. The books are on the expensive side, but this is the case with any school you go to. Once you have 16 credit hours you are no longer charged for extra hours, so if you have the time to take a bigger load of classes your saving yourself a substantial amount of money.
