Tuition and Fees

2021-22 Academic Year

Tuition $62,070 ($31,035 billed each semester)
Includes mandatory activity fee for the year, which covers all activities funded through CCSGA. The activity fee for 2021-22 is $474.

Full time status = 3 blocks per term ($31,035)
Fall term = 4 blocks offered (3 blocks $31,035 and 4th block no additional charge)
Spring term = 5 blocks offered (3 blocks $31,035 and 4th and 5th blocks no additional charge)
     NOTE: J Block and Half Block are part of spring semester. If a student is enrolled full time in spring term, there will be no additional charge for J Block or Half Block.

CC Student Health Insurance (optional*)
Fall term coverage (8/1/21 - 12/31/21) = $1,190 billed in fall term

Spring term coverage (1/1/22 - 7/31/22) = $1,627 billed in spring term

*CC health insurance is available to all CC students. Students are not required to participate in the college's health insurance plan if they have other health coverage. All students must either ENROLL or WAIVE the health insurance plan every year. Fall semester online enrollment/waiver process is open July 1 through August 31, 2021 at waiver portal.

Failure to complete the online waiver will result in defaulted enrollment in the CC health plan for the semester; a premium charge of $1190 (fall term coverage fee) will be posted to the student's account and will be due September 6, 2021. 
Important notes:
1. It may take 7 to 10 days for waivers to be approved by the Student Health Center.
2. CC athletes may also have a sports insurance rider. This is not the same medical insurance coverage and does not exempt any student from completing the enrollment/waiver process.

Students who complete enrollment/waiver for fall term DO NOT need to complete the waiver in the spring term unless they are changing their election for coverage.

Winter start students or those students starting classes in the spring must waive or enroll for spring semester. Failure to complete the online waiver will result in defaulted enrollment in the CC health plan for spring semester; a premium charge of $1627 (spring term coverage fee) will be posted to the student's account and will be due February 1, 2022.

More information on spring deadlines will be sent via our student account brochure in November.
Additional information on CC's student health insurance is available on the Student Health & Wellbeing page.

For students entering in fall semester 2021-22, a general obligation deposit of $1,000 is required of both new students and students returning after interrupting college enrollment. This deposit is applied to the first semester invoice. The deposit is forfeited by failure to provide notice of withdrawal by March 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester for enrolled students, or after acceptance of admission for new students.
