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
This is where COD really shines. Even with modest tuition hikes, the school is still affordable. I have gotten through the first two years of my BA with virtually no debt. This is one of the top accredited community colleges in the country, and the price makes it a great choice to figure out what you want to study and what you enjoy.

Overall the College of DuPage is nothing short of a financial dream. You get an award winning education while not having to put too big of a hole in your wallet. When all is said and done you really get so much more than what you are paying for.

after two years of attending college of dupage full time, i have earned my associates degree for under $6500 (including summer courses). cod is great about financial aid as well as scholarships that are not necessarily need based. attending cod was the best decision i've ever made!!
Kasie-Marie from Naperville, IL
From my freshmen year coming into College of DuPage I've been steady learning about myself what I'm compatible of and what the school really provides which is a great experience of learning the field you've chosen to make a living out of. The money you pay for tuition is well worth it, because you walk away with such knowledge and it sticks with you throughout your journey.
Lauren from Hillside, IL
If you are looking to save some money by attending a community college to transfer credit to a four-year university, this is the one. College of DuPage prepares you for success better than you’d ever expect a junior college to do. They offer a huge variety of courses to ensure you transfer to your university with courses that matter. The school has everything from writing to robotics, cooking to calculus, animation to architecture, and so much more. As far as community colleges go, College of DuPage DEFINES “bang for your buck.”
