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

2.86 Average Rating
You really can't beat the prices. A full load for me is a little over $1000 per semester. Compare that to regular university prices, which go from $5000 to $10000 a semester, all for the exact same general education classes! It's pretty much a no-brainer. I don't regret my decision at all, because while everyone's in debt, I'll be enjoying that money saved.

Moraine Valley compares top universities tuition to theirs, and there is up to a $50,000 difference in tuition alone, so I am saving at least $30,000 a year just by taking my general courses at Moraine instead.

Economically it is the BEST choice a new college student can make. Expenses for about 16 credit hours including books is within the range of $2,000 USD. I simply have not found a reason why someone would like to pay three to five times as much money for the same education elsewhere.
Ricardo from Blue Island, IL
I think that Moraine Valley offers a HUGE variety of classes, across every possible field. In state, if you plan on transferring it's an amazing deal. You can get two whole years, plus, out of the way for minimal cost. For me, the loan I took out for ONE SEMESTER at Marquette cost more than my year and half here at Moraine Valley. And I took a total of about 40 credits at Moraine over 3 semesters and only 15 at Marquette in one semester.
