Your total tuition cost is a combination of the Washington state tuition collected by the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges and SCC fees that help support things like student programs. The student body often votes on how these fees are used. Take a look at our current fees for a breakdown of what your money supports.
Tuition waivers allow certain people or groups of people to receive reduced tuition costs. Common waivers include children of totally disabled or POW/MIA or deceased eligible veterans or national guard members, children and spouses of deceased or disabled law enforcement or fire fighters, wrongfully convicted persons, space available waivers (Washington state employees and senior citizens looking to audit a course) and others. For detailed information on waivers, visit the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges waivers page.
Tax credits can help reduce the cost of your education by reducing the amount of taxable income your family needs to pay. We don't post information on tax credits because it is always changing. Talk to your accountant for details on deducting your tuition.
