Whether you take 12, 15 or more credit hours, your cost is the same. A $15 tuition fee and course fees will be additional expenses. Learn more about tuition and fees.
The Maricopa Opportunity Grant provides $1,220 to students who demonstrate a financial need to help with tuition, fees and textbooks. The grant is available for fall 2020 and spring 2021 while funds are available.
There are also hundreds of scholarships available through the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation.
