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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Esther from Syracuse, NY
For me OCC was an amazing opportunity, the classes and professors i've had have taught me a lot, I was able to get an amazing first two years of school for a good price, and it also helped me a lot in my transfer options.

Excellent professors who help you succeed while encouraging independent responsibility. My experience has been outstanding and I recommend all graduating seniors to consider attending OCC.
David from Fulton, NY
onondaga community college is a fantastic option for those students who are a little short on cash. even students who can't afford to go to $50,000 a year institutions will get the same level of education at occ for a much, much lower cost.
Casey from East Syracuse, NY
The tuition cost can not be beat currently around $2,500 a semester plus $300 in books possibly, and food, so $3000 semester, $6000 a year, great alternative to 2 years of a 4 year school.
