Preparing for College
JWCC Net Price Calculator
Welcome to John Wood Community College's net price calculator. This tool helps students and their families estimate what it may cost to attend John Wood each year.
JWCC is the most affordable choice to start a bachelor's degree or to pursue a career and/or technical program for entry into the workforce.
Just look at the savings!
- Tuition at JWCC is $157 per credit hour (in-district) or approximately $2,355 per semester or $4,710 per year (based on 15 credit hours)(cost estimates 2016-2017 academic year);
- Tuition at area public four year colleges and universities is approximately $6,527 per semester or $13,055 per year, not including housing;
- That is a savings of $17,598 if you take four semesters at JWCC;
- The cost of tuition at most private four year colleges is approximately $13,263 per semester or $26,527 per year, not including housing.
The direct college-attendance costs of tuition, books, supplies and student fees at John Wood are joined with estimated cost for normal living expenses - such as room and board, transportation, and other personal expenses.
"Net price" is then computed by taking the total estimated cost minus any grant aid that a student may receive for the year. The net price calculator does not take any student loans into account for the year.
The information you receive from the calculator is a broad estimate only. Many factors come into play when financial aid is awarded to students including, but not limited to: deadlines, levels of funding, grade levels, extracurricular involvement and academic standing.
