It can be a bit scary to look at the total projected cost of a college education over the course of a multi-year degree, however, doing so will help you better understand the financial commitment you are making.

The overall cost for on-campus, in-state students to attend Central Piedmont Community College in 2020 - 2021 was $20,010. To calculate future costs, we looked at the prior five years of data and determined that this cost decreased an average of 1.1% each year.

If this trend continues, we expect the full cost for incoming freshmen to be $19,560 during their first year. By their senior year, that cost will be approximately $18,905, for a bachelor degree candidate ($19,339 for an associate degree candidate) for a total of $76,925 over the course of four years ($38,900 over the course of two years). These numbers do not take into consideration financial aid, which reduces this overall cost by varying amounts per student.

The cost for out-of-state students is more, with an overall expected four-year cost of $101,470 based on a yearly growth rate of -0.9%. The expected two-year cost is $51,178.
