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

3.16 Average Rating
$71 per credit hour in county. Generally around $223 per class give or take a few for the usually small extra class fees. Usually like $5 for an English class or $10 for a computer lab fee. The most expensive i have seen is a $40 one for exercise classes and mostly those are only 1 credit classes anyways, so they are very cheap!

They are constantly adding new things to the school. Recently completed the new Mariposa building and either by this spring or fall this fire/police training like building should be done. There is the skill center for the nursing and other few medical fields, and of course the campus for all the other. They are close together as well, no worries about the Skill Center (nursing center, etc) being clear down the way from the actual campus, it is right there everything is the actual campus.

Tuition is reasonable price. As well as the books.
Michael from Buckeye, AZ
Definitely worth the money. An excellent way to get all of the basics out of the way for a third of the cost.
Mackenzie from Wickenburg, AZ
Most movie theaters have a discount for students, you just have to show your school id.

The online library has a 24/7 online librarian that can help a student find any information at anytime.

There is also a Writing Center where students can submit their papers to get critiqued, and aids the student in becoming a stronger writer.
