About Tuition

ATCC's Student Financial Services provides resources to Financial Aid, Scholarships, and additional sources to help pay for college.

Please see the Tuition and Payments page for payment procedures, due dates, and account information.

Tuition pays for approximately 56% of the cost of a student at public college or university. The State of Minnesota pays the balance.

Cost of Attendance (COA)

The Financial Aid Office provides an estimate of full-time educational costs for attending Alexandria Technology and Community College (ATCC) for the standard academic year (nine months). Tuition and fee costs for students vary depending on their credit level and courses. The other categories of the COA are based on an average expense for students enrolling at ATCC. Actual expenses will vary based on a student’s personal choices and course of study. Estimated costs listed below are standard financial aid budget items and represent an estimate of what students can anticipate spending for tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, and personal and miscellaneous expenses. Only actual direct costs will appear on the student’s billing account.
