Tuition & Fees

With higher education costs skyrocketing both across the Commonwealth and nationwide, Virginia’s community colleges remain a smart choice for students who are beginning postsecondary education or returning to college mid-career.

Virginia's Community Colleges are meeting an affordable tuition goal: tuition will not exceed half of the average cost to attend a public four-year institution in Virginia.

For fiscal year 2013, in-state tuition and mandatory fees for our colleges will be approximately $3900 for two semesters of full-time study (15 credit hours per semester), approximately 37 percent of the average in-state tuition and fees at Virginia’s public universities (projected at $10,332).

Tuition rates set by the State Board for Community Colleges for the 2013-14 academic year are as follows: 
(adopted May 2013)

  • Virginia Resident - $130 per credit hour
  • Out-of-State Resident - $324.60 per credit hour

A differential is charged at Northern Virginia Community College and at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, and individual community colleges also have additional fees.
