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.

What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
Southwest Tennessee Community College offers classes starting at $147 dollars per 3 credit hours which is relatively inexpensive; probably the best deal for a community college. Unlike starting at a university, the tuition alone is large enough to choke a horse so be economically aware of your options. Not only is Southwest more economically friendly for yours or your parents/guardians pockets, it will keep you from spending your life savings for one degree. It is wise to get into a transfer program that will eleviate the bulk of the university of your choice's costs and keep them at a minimum.
