Cost of Attendance

Tulsa Community College (TCC) is one of the most affordable schools in Oklahoma for earning associate degrees and certificates. Financial aid, veterans benefits, and scholarships can help cover tuition and fees, and course materials. TCC also has different payment methods available to students.

TCC offers high-quality education with an affordable cost of attendance compared to other colleges and universities. Take a look at the College Cost Comparison Chart and see how low TCC’s tuition compares to other colleges in Oklahoma.

Each financial aid recipient is assigned a budget based on an estimated cost of attendance. The cost of attendance can vary among students based on specific circumstances and the student's enrollment.

Understand the Full Cost of Attendance

TCC's lower cost of tuition is among the reasons many students choose to attend, but it is important for students to understand the full cost of attendance, beyond just tuition.

The cost of attendance is what the College estimates it will take for you to attend TCC for one year, including direct and indirect expenses.

Direct: Costs associated with going to school like tuition, fees, books, and supplies.

Indirect: Costs associated with living, such as room and board, personal expenses, and transportation. Loan fees, if applicable, are included in indirect costs.

The cost of attendance is also important for financial aid recipients because it is used to determine their financial aid eligibility. It is the maximum the college can award you in the various types of financial aid.

If you have expenses beyond those incorporated into the cost of attendance (COA), we may be able to increase your COA and award additional aid (usually additional student loans if you have not already met the yearly limit). Call 918-595-2000 to be referred to a financial aid representative to begin this process.
