Tuition and Costs

   
How much does it cost to attend LCCC?

Many factors are considered when determining how much it costs to attend college. 

When determining a student’s eligibility for financial aid, many factors are taken into account including enrollment status, residency status, dependency status, cost of attendance, etc. A student’s Cost of Attendance for financial aid determination includes directly billed expenses (tuition and fees) and “indirect” expenses for items such as books, supplies, transportation to and from campus, normal monthly household expenses and a small amount for personal expenses. These amounts are estimated per year at LCCC as: 

  • Tuition and Fees (scroll down for current tuition and fees)
  • Books and supplies: $ 350 – $1,500 
  • Transportation: $ 1,000 – $1,600 
  • Monthly Household expenses: $ 2,200 – $3,800 
  • Miscellaneous Personal Expenses: $ 1,000

Where laboratory, special facilities or services are required to accommodate instructional needs, a special fee may be assessed.  These fees are listed in the Class Schedule.
