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 love the fact that you are able to get a great education and not go into debt!
Olivia from Decatur, IL
As an in-district student you cannot beat their prices!! And recently they have started allowing students to rent their books so you save even more money!!
Jessica from Bethany, IL
cheaper than the last college i attended.
Dawn from Clinton, IL
Much more affordable to go here than to start your college experience off at a University. With a few small scholarships I have graduated Richland with no debt.
Victoria from Decatur, IL
They have the best tuition fees for a community college. The classes and professors and the resources are all worth the price.
Maddison from Heyworth, IL
I was skeptical about going back to school to complete my nursing degree for so many years. Working full time and raising four children as a single mother was challenging enough i thought. The children are grown and have family's of their own now, so I've decided this is 'my' time to fullfill my dream. After walking through the door of the college and talking to some wonderful people that made me feel at ease, I walked out the door an official college student! There will be obstacles and hurdles to endure, but I promise myself I will succeed. I will be an RN one day. I will have shown my children that anything is possible at any age if only you 'walk through the door'.
