Tuition and Fees

All students are required to pay tuition and fees according to dates published in registration schedules. Sponsored students whose tuition and fees are paid by agencies such as Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Alabama Veterans’ Affairs, Title IV Grants, etc. must have written authorization on file to be exempt from personal payment.

Students failing to pay at the appropriate time will have their registration voided and will have to repeat the entire registration process.

Tuition and fees are subject to change without prior notice as directed by the College, the Alabama Community College System, or the Board of Trustees.

Effective fall semester 2020, tuition will increase to $133 per credit hour. An annual adjustment of $2 per credit hour will be added each year thereafter.
