Costs and Financial Aid
The Board of Trustees for the Nebraska State Colleges establishes a schedule of tuition and fees to be charged by the State Colleges (NSCS Board Policy 6021). Specific courses may have additional assessed fees. Online courses are assessed at combined tuition and fees flat rate per credit hour. The current tuition and fees schedule may be obtained online. On-campus housing rates are also available from the Business Office or its website. Payment plans are available upon discussion with the Business Office.
