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.

Compared to the costs at other schools, I am satisfied with the amount I am paying for this class at Shelton. You pay per credit hour along with books and other fees so it is a LOT less expensive. I believe that the quality of teaching makes it all worth it end the end because you learn what you came to learn so you do not feel like you wasted time or money but like you got what you paid for.

I received my AAS within two years and am utterly thrilled with the entire experience. There was not one semester in which I did not enjoy myself, both academically and socially.
Michael from Tuscaloosa, AL
The Prices for classes are unbelievably awesome. 15 credit hours is around $2000 where as 4 credit hours at the University of Alabama is $2000.

Shelton State is a very nice school but also affordable. There are many scholarships available to apply for. One being the ambassadors program which is a way to become really involved in the school and community.
