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

2.77 Average Rating
If students show up to class on time and with their book, they are sure to learn. Teachers are very motivating and understanding. If students make the effort to ask for help, the teachers are willing to go out of their way to help them. There are also several resources available such as tutoring centers, writing resources, and even classes to improve math or writing skills before taking a college math or English course.
Christine from Williamsburg, VA
Although the textbooks and equipment are expensive for the courses, it is reasonably price depending on one's course of study and situation. Textbooks are cheaper if purchased used.
Adrian Howard from Hampton, VA
I highly suggest to people who are paying for their own education, to check out whether they can get their intro classes done here. Way more affordable than going straight to a regular university. Just make sure your credits will transfer.
D from Virginia Beach, VA
The prices for this school are decent and I love the way financial aid works. Before you go to the bookstore you get a little slip of paper saying how much you have in your financial aid account & what all you can spend it on. I have been enrolled here a full year now and have not spent a penny on my school.
