**This table lists the base price cost and does not include eBook fees or course fees generated at the section level.
***Every student taking a credit or continuing education course is required to pay a combined registration fee. For credit students, the combined fee includes the registration fee, campus fee, technology fee, and student activity fee. For continuing education students, the combined fee includes the registration fee, campus fee, and a technology fee, but not a student activity fee. The student activity fee portion of the combined fee enables the college to provide many extracurricular and co-curricular benefits to students. Each spring the Student Government Association (SGA) allocates the money for student activities, student clubs and organizations, and student services. Students are then able to take advantage of these activities and services for free or at a reduced cost. Students learn about upcoming activities through promotions posted on campus, bulletin boards, the HawkTalk student e-newsletter or printed publication, and the college website.

If you are taking classes for workforce training, adult education, or personal enrichment or hobbies, your payment process will be different from students pursuing degrees.

It's easy! You will pay a fixed cost per class. Costs are listed with each course description.
