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

3.04 Average Rating
This college is extremely wallet friendly especially in comparison to the universities. If you don't think that this is a fair price then look at ASU or UofA and see what you think after that. This college is a great way to get a lot of your courses out of the way and is a great transition from high school to a university.
Jacob from Glendale, AZ
Being a community college its value is really great.
Damien from Glendale, AZ
The entire cost for tuition, fees, and books at GCC for the two-years I have been going there is just a little over the tuition alone for a semester at ASU, yet when I talk to my friends attending university they often complain about the quality of education. For the fraction of the price, I take the same courses with fewer students and more interaction with the professor.
Kristopher from Peoria, AZ
Glendale Community College is extremely affordable. They offer academic scholarships through high school placement, placement testing, and an honors program. Saving money is critically important, and going through community college either to achieve an associates degree or transfer to a university is the way to go! Glendale Community College is the school everyone should consider around the Maricopa County.
