Catalog and Student Handbook

Tuition: Tuition charges are set by the State Board for Community Colleges and are subject to change. If a tuition and fee increase does occur after payment has occurred, the student will be responsible for the difference.

Student Activity Fee: A student activity fee is charged per credit hour to all student categories except Out-of-State E-rate and high school dual enrollment. This fee supports student activity operating budgets.

Parking Maintenance Auxiliary Fee: A parking maintenance auxiliary fee is charged per credit hour to all student categories except Out-of-State E-rate and high school dual enrollment. The fee supports the maintenance costs of the parking lots, which are not allowed to be funded with state appropriations.

Facilities Auxiliary Fee: A facilities auxiliary fee is charged per credit hour to all student categories except Out-of-Sate E-rate and high school dual enrollment. The fee supports the facility costs that cannot be funded with state appropriations, such as student centers and parking garages.

Technology Fee: A technology fee is charged per credit hour to all students. Revenue from this fee is used to update and improve instructional tools such as LANs and computer hardware, software and peripherals.

Capital Fee: A capital fee is charged per credit hour to all out-of-state students, including out-of-state contract students. This fee is to offset bond expenses for capital construction. The college collects this fee but does not retain it.

Books and Supplies: Students are expected to obtain their own books, supplies and consumable materials needed in their studies. The estimated cost of these items is $600.00 per semester for the average full-time student, depending upon the degree program in which the student is enrolled.

Tuition and fees are subject to change with the approval of the Virginia State Board for Community Colleges. The current tuition and fees are posted on the College’s website. All fees are due with payment of tuition.
