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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.55 Average Rating
This is the best deal around. Your going to be paying very little for the small college with a big college feel. This is definitly an economic depression buster as we've seen from our rise in tuition by 1000 students since last year! Everyone is signing up to attend classes and go back to school.
Dave from Boise, ID
$3,500 a year?! That is the best deal ever! I think I will have about $200 to pay after FAFSA and scholarships, if even that! That's a lot better than $15,000 I was planning on spending for C of I.
Kendra from Nampa, ID
Cheapest in Idaho, and they provide great benefits at no extra cost like giving students 500 pages for print each semester and copy cards. Also (like mentioned above) they provide events at little or no charge to students almost every night).
Matthew from Twin Falls, ID
I highly recommend always being in the Student Union building from eleven in the morning to one in the afternoon. There is always an event going on and many opportunities for students. To add on, a lot of times food and other free items are provided for students.
Houda from Twin Falls, ID
Tuition is only $119 a credit.
Celia from Boise, ID
The College of Southern Idaho is very inexpensive to begin with for a college. But on top of that they provide a great quality education and are more than happy to assist students to obtain scholarships and if needed student loans. There is usually enough programs and opportunities though that if you apply yourself and participate you can get all of your expenses paid through scholarships and work opportunities.
The College of Southern Idaho is primarily for those who have never had any college experience and for those who are working on obtaining their associates degrees or are wanting to learn a trade such as welding, aquaculture, auto-mechanics, and manufacturing.
Mark from Twin Falls, ID
Very smart to attend CSI because the tuition is not nearly as expensive as other places and they offer quite a bit of technical programs and other things.
Millie from Kimberly, ID
