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.

Palo Alto College has very reasonable prizes for great classes. You will definitely get your moneys worth.
Sandra from San Antonio TX
This school is a good place where your money does not get thrown away. Getting in is very affordable many students do not think they could go to college and they see that they could afford it and get a career. This school is very helpful for people that really needed.
Jorge from San Antonio, TX
Oh yea and this college is very affordable. I am getting help from financial aid and paying for tuition is not as bad as paying for a four year university.
