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

There's no denying that BCC is ridiculously cheap, and the classes aren't bad at all- plus the course catalog is huge, so you're bound to find something you're interested in.
Emily from Rockledge, FL
You truly get your money's worth, and more, here. Put your full effort into the classes and you will see it was a great investment.
Haley
I was able to take 5 classes for around $2,500 last semester. Not having anything else to compare to, I think it's a great price!
Nicole from Melbourne, FL
This college provides an excellent education with a very affordable cost. I think it's amazing!
Yanira from Rockledge, FL
They allow my high school to dual enroll. So, everything is free!
Olivia from Cocoa, FL
I have learned alot at BCC and every single class I have taken has been worth every cent.
Ardelle from Palm Bay, FL
BCC is certainly the frugal choice. I chose BCC because it has been rated as the number one Community College in the nation (and because it is fifteen minutes away). I would have gone off to a four-year institution if it were not that I felt comfortable with the high standards of education. I am shocked to find that I can get two years of a four-year degree with the same or better standard of learning for such a fraction of the cost.
Josiah from Titusville, FL
One thing I will admit is that you do save money going to BCC. Because I don't really care for BCC, I expressed in taking my Paramedic program through Keiser University, only to find that prices are much higher going to any other college. Do NOT buy your textbooks from the book store. They are the biggest rip off and will do anything to get your money. All colleges are like this though. I highly recommend buying yours offline. If you are interested in selling your books at the end of the semester, DO NOT sell them back to the bookstore. I paid 200 dollars for my EMT book, and one of my classmates was offered $3 if he sold it back to them. If you do research on the book your trying to sell, you will succeed. I have successfully sold all of my books online ranging from $15-60. But if the prices of classes is what you are concerned about, the price is decent. Make sure you know what you want to take though, because they are still a few hundred dollars.
Kyle from Palm Bay, FL
A person would absolutely obtain their money's worth at BCC. I myself like to take as many classes as I possibly can. For me to take five classes it costs me nothing. The price between a giant university and BCC is very different to say the least. Even if you so desired to go to UCF, going to BCC first allows you to directly transfer to this school. I receive a whole lot more than what I give to BCC.
