Tuition & fees

Coupled with numerous financial aid opportunities, a Chemeketa education is an affordable and smart investment.

The costs cited below are for tuition and general fees. Some classes have fees for online instruction ($50) materials or lab use. All fees for a class will appear totaled together in the 'Tui + Fee' column of the class schedule. Costs for credit classes are calculated on a per-credit basis. Tuition varies depending on your permanent residence.

Payment Due Date:Before the first day of the term or within ten days of registration (whichever is later) to avoid a $25 late fee. Additional late fees will be applied each term on unpaid accounts throughout the term. See more information on the late fees page.

Please note: Fall term Tuition and Fees will not be posted to your student account until Monday, August 3, 2015
