How Much Does it Cost?

Budgeting for Your Education

How much will you pay to attend Spokane or Spokane Falls Community College? The cost differs for everyone based on current tuition rates, your residency status, financial aid package, school fees, your program of study, cost of books and your cost of living. To start calculating your costs, use the table below for the current school year, then subtract your amount of financial assistance you receive.

Residency Status

Your residency status determines how much tuition you pay. If you're a U.S. citizen and your residency status is from another state, you pay nonresident tuition fees.

What about undocumented status, active military or veterans status? Determine your residency status, by visiting the SCC or SFCC website, to get specifics on your status.

Fees Explained

Your total tuition cost is a combination of the Washington state tuition collected by the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges and SCC or SFCC fees that help support things like student programs. The student body often votes on how these fees are used. Visit the SCC or SFCC websites to see our current fees and a breakdown of what your money supports.
