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 Community College of Aurora in 2020 - 2021 was $23,470. To calculate future costs, we looked at the prior five years of data and determined that this cost increased an average of 5.1% each year.

If this trend continues, we expect the full cost for incoming freshmen to be $25,915 during their first year. By their senior year, that cost will be approximately $30,069, for a bachelor degree candidate ($27,232 for an associate degree candidate) for a total of $111,830 over the course of four years ($53,147 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 $167,725 based on a yearly growth rate of 5.3%. The expected two-year cost is $79,503.
