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'm very impressed
Halie from San Antonio, TX
This college is a lot cheaper than a University and you get good quality for a less expensive price.
Brenda from San Antonio, TX
It's a community college, so you'd expect to have to pay less. it's about $1000 a semester before textbooks. But you learn so much from the classes here if you take the right ones that it's totally worth it.
Elizabeth from San Antonio, TX
I have definitely saved a lot of money rather than going to a four year college. Going to Northwest Vista is a great way to get a feel for the college experience and finish all your prerequisites.
Amanda from San Antonio, TX
The courses offered at NVC are definitely less expensive than other 2 year colleges around San Antonio and I have never regretted my decision to attend here.
Leslie from San Antonio, TX
Although it is a community college, you are getting what you paid for.
Cassandra from San Antonio, TX
It's very affordable especially if you have FASFA and apply for Grants. Although it does get a little pricey for out of district students.
