An Affordable Experience
A year of study at the Community Colleges of Spokane is significantly less than a university, and will save you tens of thousands of dollars overall.
Preparing for College Costs
Please visit our “How to Pay Tuition and Fees” site for more information about our preferred payment method through PayMyTuition.
Homestay payment must be made at the beginning of each month, and you will be required to make your first payment when you arrive to the home. These payments must be made on time, and directly to the family, not to the school.
Personal Spending Money
Remember to budget in personal spending money for your first quarter in Spokane. If you arrive for winter quarter in December, for example, you may need to acquire warm clothing such as gloves, hat and boots for colder weather.
Applying for Scholarships
All CCS Scholarships
International students are encouraged to apply for any scholarships available from the CCS Foundation office. You will have to meet the specific requirements for each scholarship if there are any. The General scholarship application period is open from January 03 – March 15 each year.
Every year, the Foundation provides over 300 major scholarships for tuition and books, as well as hundreds of smaller awards to help with testing costs, program fees and emergency needs.
