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.

Brianna from Selma, TX
This is a great campus to acquire your basics at. Many of my professors also taught at local Universities as well. This made me more comfortable with the education that I received.
Kelan from San Antonio, TX
San Antonio College has very reasonable prices and it is way worth for the price. You learn very much and get awesome teachers. San Antonio College is a great place to spend your money.
Lucianna from San Antonio, TX
I cannot express enough how much of a 'steal' San Antonio College is. You are definitely not wasting your money here! And the greatest part is there is very little of it involved, especially compared to what you could be paying at the university level!
Kelsey from San Antonio, TX
The tuition is very cheap and affordable also financial aid is a huge saver. On top of everything SAC offers there own scholarships which are helpful as well.
Breeana from San Antonio, TX
Definitely get a lot for your money when compared to a traditional four year school. It's a big savings if you get your basics here and then transfer. Beware the student financial aid departments though; recent years have shown a ton of problems and headaches. They are understaffed and chronically plagued with problems that cause issues for students who depend on financial aid, yet they advertise all the time to recruit new students. It makes no sense. Financial aid office is ALWAYS crowded with huge lines. They need to fix this. What good is a bang for the buck if you can't actually get the money in hand to pay for school?
Sherri from San Antonio, TX
Like I mentioned, the cost is amazing. I wouldn't move into the area just to attend school here, but if you're in SA, taking your basics here is a great idea.
