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.

In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

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

My pell grant covered the full tution of school.
Brittany from Jacksonville, FL
I think Columbia College is extremely affordable for the education you obtain here.
Karen from Camdenton, MO
Almost all the money you spend on your tuition gets put back into you as the student.
Anthony from Holts Summit, MO
This is rather hard for me to answer as I am here on scholarship, but being that it is a private college the tuition is higher than some schools. However, there are literally tons of scholarships available and most have a chance of winning at least something. Also, you do get your money's worth. What you're paying for is what you're getting.
Jessica from Mexico, MO
When telling people I am attending Columbia College I am greeted with smiles and seem to be thought of as a more intellectual person. I have a job that is close to the field I wish to be in once I am done with my degrees, so I would have to say that so far, so good.
Crystal from Boonville, MO
I'd say Columbia College's tuition cost is about average. You are paying for a great experience, meaning inside and outside of the classroom. This college also offers great scholarship opportunities and even has a work study program to help you pay for school.
