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 believe you get the bang for your buck at mclennan community college because first off, it doesn't cost much to go to school here and the professors here are amazing. they truly love what they are doing and want you to succeed in their classes. its overall a great school
Alyssa from Waco, TX
good place to start, inexpensive as colleges go and transition to many four year colleges here on campus so one doesn't have to pay all the expenses of a four year but still get a diploma from one.
Kathleen from West, TX
McLennan Community College is very affordable and it also offers a program so you can attend a four year university at MCC.
Susan from Waco, TX
This school is awesome because I am learning just as much as I would from a four year university yet for a cheaper price and I am getting more one on one help.
Mariah from Waco, TX
I will be transferring from MCC with an A.A degree, and I really enjoyed attending. I attended because I had to pay for my school, my parents were not able to offer me any help, and MCC is a great way to get a good education or get started on your education without having to take out numerous student loans.
