Tuition & Fees


A college education has never been more important or expensive. And although the tuition at most public and private colleges and universities has increased during the past 10 years, the cost to attend a two-year community college is still substantially less that the cost to attend a public or private four-year school. Community colleges, also known as junior colleges, provide an excellent money-saving opportunity for those concerned with college costs. You will Spend Less when you choose CLTCC, and you may be eligible for a full or partial grant that you won’t have to pay back.
