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

3.08 Average Rating
Cheaper than a big university, but better quality since its smaller classes.
Amanda from Minneapolis, MN
This school is highly affordable, as I'm sure you have already heard. The most amazing program i have heard of and am apart of is the Power of You. It's a program only offered at MCTC and it is for students right out of high school. What this program essentially is, is two years of college at MCTC free! They cover whatever tuition your financial aid does not! All your responsible for is paying for books, unless you have grants or scholarships. This program is based on your family income. Once you are accepted all you have to do is maintain a 2.0 or higher GPA and be taking 6 or more credits. They will only cover 6-14 credits so if you take more or less than that you will have to pay for it. This is truly an amazing program and i am really grateful i was accepted. College is no joke and it is very pricey so for a program to offer you 2 years free is remarkable!
Samantha from Minneapolis, MN
did you know two year colleges are actually a plus for the future?! don't get discouraged if you get stuck applying to "minority-packed" or "uneducated-group" of community college students because that's such a myth ! in high school the talk of community colleges was absolutely underrated ! lets be real, what wouldn't you want to involve yourself in a community college? you get to save tons of money! and your involved in a four-year campus feel ! the only real difference between a university and a two year college to me , after comparing and debating with my older sister who went straight to a four-year, was dorm life ! there's plenty of cheap ways around off parental authority that are much cheaper than going to a university.

Basically all colleges seem expensive, but this turned out to be an affordable option for me. I did receive some grants, but I was able to pay for the rest of my college expenses out of my savings, so I finished my associates degree without taking out any loans. The education was definitely helpful as I pursued library work.
Elizabeth from Duluth, MN
You definitely get a BANG for your BUCK!!! This Community college is very affordable and also has easy transfer credits to Metro State and Augsburg Colleges. You learn so much in your courses that you would think it was a University.
