Tuition & Fees

In a context of tight budgets, we are working to enhance the educational experience of our students. CC’s cost of attendance is based on extensive deliberations about financial aid, salaries, operating costs, and other economic realities.  This year we continue to strongly support a high-quality experience inside and outside the classroom. 

We also have sought to constrain the increase in the cost of attendance, in the face of ongoing economic challenges for so many of our families. For the 2015-16 academic year, our comprehensive fee will increase by 5.1%.  This comprises tuition and fees of $48,996 (a 5.6% increase in tuition), with the base room and board rates of $11,215. For students taking one or two blocks in a semester, tuition is charged at the per-block rate of $8,166.

Our top priorities are maintaining and strengthening the quality of the educational program, holding the undergraduate enrollment target at 1,975, and ensuring access to a CC education. Thus, we have sustained our commitment to hiring new tenure-track faculty—and we have been successful in recruiting our top choices of young, diverse, extraordinarily talented faculty to carry on CC’s tradition of dedicated, student-focused teaching.
