Tuition and Fees

An Education at SCC is Affordable

At Shawnee Community College, tuition and fees are affordable and remain some of the lowest in the state.

In addition to tuition and fees, there are indirect costs associated with attending college such as books, room and board, transportation, and other personal expenses. These additional expenses are reviewed annually to determine the estimated cost of attendance for SCC students.

You may not incur all of these expenses and the actual cost of attendance may vary based on your enrollment status, residency status, living arrangements, transportation costs, and lifestyle. Cost of attendance also determines the annual student aid budget limit.
