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

3.06 Average Rating
While like all schools the text book costs are a tad high, the cost per credit hour and class fees is small compared to the quality of learning environments that I have been exposed to here at Chemeketa.
Michael from Salem, OR
Chemeketa offers a scholars program which pays for your tuition for your first 2 years if you maintain a GPA of 3.5 and higher. This has made Chemeketa grow more and more popular because of course, everyone wants to save money.
Linda from Salem, OR
I was surprised at Chemeketa's prices. I know that being a community college it will be less than a university but I was impressed. Up in the financial aid offices there are packets that you can get a month or so pior to the next term with scholarships you can apply for and it's amazing. You really get what you pay for.
Kimberly from Independence, OR
Classes are a reasonable price and I can't complain about the price for what I getting out of it...
