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.

***Textbooks?
If you don't want spend all of your money- just either get them online (slugbooks.com and fetchbooks.com are AWESOME websites! and cheapest ones I know) OR you can also either rent/borrow textbooks from the BC Bookstore and the Library.

***Food ?
There's seriously SO many different food options, within AND outside Campus!
There's the Cafeteria inside the college- that's a great place to go if your next class is in like 15 min. The bookshop is also in the same building.
Outside: just go out of school and there's everything (Starbucks, Quizzinos, McDonalds, Rite Aid, ETC.) !
Aziza, a student in BC
The library is great place to go and find resources as well as to study. Great college overall.

People are suprised at the amount I pay for such a great education. What people are paying 40,000 dollars a year for, I'm getting for 5,000 dollars.
