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, Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and Title IV Grants must have written authorization on file to be exempt from personal payment.

When students fail to pay their tuition by the designated deadline, their course schedule will be voided, and they will have to repeat the entire registration process.

Note: Tuition and fees at Wallace Community College are subject to change at the beginning of any term and prior to or during the 2021-2022 academic year as a result of state budget proration and other factors beyond the College’s control. 

Total credit hours exceeding 19 must be approved by the Dean of Instructional Affairs.

In-state Tuition. In state tuition is $123 per semester hour.

Out-of-state Tuition. Out-of-state tuition is two times  the in-state tuition per credit hour.  Wallace Community College allows in-state tuition for certain neighboring Florida and Georgia residents.  Out-of-state tuition rate applies to internet courses.
