Tuition and Fees

2020-2021

Tuition is set by the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges which acts upon legislative authority. Tuition and fees are subject to change.

 

Some CBC classes offer extra services such as specialized technology, tools, supplies, insurance, certifications and lab space. These classes may have additional fees added to student accounts to cover extra costs related to the special service.

We understand that employers need documentation to financially support your education. Contact us by emailing cashieringFREECOLUMBIA_BASIN with the following to receive a breakdown of tuition and fees on CBC letterhead:
