Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.58 Average Rating
Online classes cost a little bit more than actually going to the campus, but the classes you take there, at least the required classes that I took, are definitely worth the money that you spend. It's cheaper than most other colleges and you get a good education there.
Ashlynn from Morrison, CO
ACC is affordable and personable. I take guaranteed transfer courses that will contribute to my bachelors degree in health science at a four year school.
Carissa from Littleton, CO
I was surprised to find out that the teachers at community colleges were held to the same standards in most respects as their peers at four year colleges. Considering the large difference in tuition, ACC is an incredible value. The only issue I have is the transfer eligibility of the credits taken at a community college, unless the classes you take are general transfer credits, the chance of the classes you take transferring over to the four year colleges and universities is up in the air. If there were solid transfer agreements in place outside of general transfer credits, I would absolutely give ACC five stars.
Brittany from Lakewood, CO
I got great scholarships and grants from the school! Pays off to do well in high school [;
deidre from Aurora, CO
Its a community college, so its about as affordable as college gets. Financial aid helps out a lot. We have work study programs, which is great. The amount I am learning is well worth the cost.
