The overall cost for on-campus, in-state students to attend Bishop State Community College in 2020 - 2021 was $13,560. To calculate future costs, we looked at the prior five years of data and determined that this cost increased an average of 4.4% each year.

If this trend continues, we expect the full cost for incoming freshmen to be $14,785 during their first year.
