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.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
It's a community college, so it is affordable. For a 5 credit course, it's about $500 for residents, and $900 for non-residents. The cafeteria isn't so bad. They sell pizza, burgers, fries, wraps, burritos, lasagna, and soup. It's usually, the same thing, but they do change it once in a while. The price for food and supplies in the bookstore can be a rip off, so I don't recommend purchasing at the school on a regular basis. Shoreline also has neat cafes, one located in the PUB, and the other outside on campus. The baristas are always really cheerful and nice. Also, students can get parking permits for each quarter for just 15 dollars!

I don't know what the cafeteria prices are, but overall, it is a nice way to transition from not paying for education to having to play x amount of dollars.
