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

3.12 Average Rating
well priced compared to other local colleges.
Rachel from Denver, CO
It was a great way to start my college education. I recommend community college for everyone before attending a 4-year school, because it is so cheap. The school will give you information about a monthly payment plan, which helps out a lot. You get what you pay for!
Shandra
Red Rocks has always worked with me and their payments month to month are reasonable. Great small community college to attend to recieve your associates before transfering to another 4 year college. Cheap and they encourage you to apply for COF ( college oppertunity fund ) .
Casey from Denver, CO
The school has everything you need in a college and has an excellent atmosphere for study. You can tell all is new and innovative for the student.
Christopher from Lakewood, CO
The classes are reasonably priced, because the education received is very good. Also parking and all other amenities are included in tuition.
Sandra from Centennial, CO
It is great that all of the credits transfer, so I can take two full years towards my Bachelors degree for cheap then transfer to a 4 year school for only 2 years.
Katherine from Bailey, CO
red rocks community college offers great tuiton pricing for all students. attending this college is a good way to accomplish your goals for your associates degree before moving on to a 4 year university.
Krystin from Lakewood, CO
Excellent - about half of the cost of a 4 year college. Apply for the COF and save even more. RRCC also has a foundation that awards scholarships.
Allison from Littleton, CO
Great education at a really low rate. I was lucky to receive grants and scholarships for all of my schooling here, but if I had had to pay this would not have made a huge financial dent, which is really nice.
Manda from Thornton, CO
Unbeatable value. This school provides a level of individualized attention which is sadly lacking at most larger schools.
