Tuition & Fees

The College Affordability and Transparency Center is a helpful resource to assist prospective students in determining the affordability and value of higher education institutions. Students may use the College Scorecard to find comparative information in order to make informed decisions when choosing an institution. The information is based on different variables and can be confusing to interpret. UCC’s College Scorecard data reflects an economic period when students requested federal loan aid at a rate much higher than today (more loans leads to a higher cost of education). The cost of education at UCC remains competitive in serving our residents of Douglas County. Visit the College Affordability and Transparency Center.

Every effort is made to ensure accuracy of the information below. However, the college reserves the right to make changes without prior notice.
