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

2.60 Average Rating
Choosing RACC was probably one of the best decisions I could have made. I was always searching for a college that could meet me needs of an inexpensive school that I could fit into my budget and at the same time get my general classes finished and obtain a degree. What could be better than a deal like that? Even through high school, I was always very conscience of how I spent my money. I never wanted to be in debt because my college was costing me an arm and a leg.
