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

3.08 Average Rating
JJC is a **TOTAL** value! The level of education you receive for the money you pay is unbelievable... If you tried to start out your first two years at university, you would pay most likely three to four times than you pay at JJC.
Mary from Joliet, IL
Most affordable in-state and out of state community college tuition, per credit hour. Financial aid and scholarships available for those who qualify.

Multitude of student services available including special departments/programs for student veterans, minority students, students with disabilities, and honor students.
Michael from Joliet, IL
JJC is very affordable and helpful with scholarships, loans, and monthly payments, to ensure you are getting the best possible educations without any overwhelming financial objections.
