Each year, the Financial Aid Office develops a sample budget to reflect expenses for a modest lifestyle while attending CVCC. Included are both college expenses (tuition, fees, books and supplies) and estimated additional expenses (room and board, personal care/clothing, medical, miscellaneous, and transportation) that you may incur during a typical nine-month academic year. Tuition and fees are charged on a per credit hour basis. If you are an Out-of-State student, you should add an additional $5,060 to the tuition and fee component to be more accurate. This budget is an estimation for a nine-month academic year.
