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.

I was suppose to go to siena however i could afford it and siena like most colleges hasn't really been sharing the wealth. HVCC is amazing and i saved so much money going here.
Julia from Cohoes, NY
I plan on attending medical school in the future, so I decided that it would be best to enter a community college first in order to save as much money as possible. The Financial Aid system at HVCC is phenomenal. If you find the process at all confusing, contact Financial Aid Services and they will gladly help you out! My father and I just finished signing up for my second semester and it literally took about 35 seconds! All of your information is kept in the system after your first semester, making all other semester sign-ups SO easy. I was shocked. I’m not good at technical stuff so its awesome that the process is so easy.
Kristy from Ballston Spa, NY
Cheap because its a community college. You can learn a lot if you put forth the effort.
Phillip from Broadalbin, NY
Price is reasonable
Stephanie from East Greenbush, NY
it's a really affordable school with lots of different programs to choose from
Joseph from Latham, NY
You can't beat Hudson Valley for affordability. I work full-time and go to school part-time. I make to much money for financial aid so I have to pay as I go. I could not afford to do this if the tuition was higher. So glad HVCC is there.
Anonymous from Delmar, NY
The college has wonderful transferable degree programs as well as certificate programs. This college is affordable with $153.00 per credit hour it's worth even driving 45min everyday.
