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

3.15 Average Rating
Classes are comparable to many courses offered at local universities, for currently about $101 per credit hour. VHCC offers many foundation scholarships to students, and most of the classes will transfer to 4-year schools.

You definitely get your bang for your buck at VHCC. The average cost for a full time student at VHCC is around (give or take a few bucks) $2,000 a semester. My high school offered a program where if one volunteered a certain number of hours each year while they were in high school, then the student received two free years at VHCC (the down side of this? Books wasn't included in the offer). I went with this option and I calculated that I saved around $65,000 dollars by going to VHCC for two years before transferring to a four year college. Big positive in my book (and my bank account)!
